    Aww...so sorry your little big character has gone. It has been so entertaining hear the updates what you ferrets get up to and even Sid's name was a promise of something special to read about. X

    Thankyou... I'm just off to plant my mini narcissi bulbs for him. It's a little ritual I seem to have, come spring there is a patch in my front garden that bursts with beautiful shades of yellow and orange, which always makes me smile as I remember all of my little critters buried there...

    I cheered myself up by buying the boys a brand new double decker cage! They absolutely love it, up til now they've had a single layer large cage on the floor below Sid's double decker. Sid's cage was a big one in the grand scheme of things(all my other ferrets have been girls and half the size of the brothers!) but it just wasn't big enough for Goose and Iggy to move into.
    So a new cage it was! Though I have never seen 2 ferrets go up and down a pretty wide, solid ladder so awkwardly!!:confused::D
    Iggy got the all clear from the vet re his spleen, it had gone down in size and stayed that way after finishing the meds, so that was a big phew... at the moment they are growing their winter coats and are both looking exceptionally lush and handsome!:D I will endeavour to get pics of them if they stay still for long enough!:rolleyes:

    It's good to see Iggy is better - and do please share photos of their new pad. I have a thing about rodent cages, I'm the sort of person who could fall in love with a cage and only then decide I need a new rat or two :oops: (Though there's so many blinking cables in this house I'm not sure that will ever be on the cards.)

    Yes it is such a relief about Iggy, Goose was totally lost without him for those few hours he was at the vets for his dental. (The downside of them being siblings I suppose, though Iggy didn't care less when it was the other way round!)
    Here's a pic of the new pad and one of them snoozing in their downstairs hammock:) I don't know why my pics are blurry at the mo, unless it's just my glasses or eyes or an inability to just work my silly phone!..:rolleyes:
