" Troubles "
July 2 1994 ------- Aprril 5 1999
When you arrived at Ferret Wise
your leg was broken clean
you carried fleas and vermin
from woods you were tossed in.
We found you help and gave you back
the leg tho' many shunned
the surgery for one so young
and costs of tidy sums.
But then you walked and danced and played
so merry were your days
A home and family for you was found
love chased your pains away.
As you grew older once again
the illnesses would come
but through the surgery and meds
you mom and dad with you were one.
This morning as the sun shone
you faded from their reach
leaving behind and empty space
inside your cage retreat.
Your family of folks and ferrets
even kitties too...
will miss your bouncy spirited self
until we meet anew.
It is with deep regret the families of "Troubs" and Ferret Wise
announces the passing of "I've Got Troubles"
on this Monday April 7 1999. Troubles was a discarded injured
( broken leg)ferret who was lolcated in Washington NH in the woods.
He graced our doorways in 1995 we were able to re- establish
the use of his leg through a 2 month process which included
traction surgery pinning the bone and rehabilitation. He actually
resumed his growth following the healing process.
We (the shelter folks) thank Mary & Keith his adoptive family for the
the love care and time they gave to this red eyed prince though we all
feel it surely was not long enough.
Fondly in ferrets,
for the many faces of Ferret Wise
