    I`m so sorry to hear you lost your ferret. I have lost pets in accidents and its heartbreaking. Please forgive yourself, I`ll be praying for you and your family.

    I really believe our beloved pets live on after death like us. You`ll be reunited with your ferret someday in heaven.

    Hugs,
    Sandy

    The Lord hears your grief and I pray He will give you comfort in your loss. He knows that you loved this ferret and that you took good care of him.

    This was not a case of neglect, but a tragic accident. You musn't feel guilty.

    I wish I could give you a hug, because I know your heart is breaking.

    You sound so desperate. But know that this was NOBODY'S fault. God hears you. Living with guilt does no good. Don't feel guilty for something that only God has control over. God will take care of you and your ferret's mate Tabatha.

    Dear God, lift Lori up and wash her free from guilt. Hold Lori (and Tabatha) in the palm of Your hand as she asks and help them thru their sadness and grief. Thank you, God, for answering our prayers. Amen.

    Lori, I am so sorry it happened this way. My thoughts are with you. Take care and know that you are loved.

    tks for your support i didnt know who else to turn too with my hubby deployed right now..saw my therapist today and she helped me too...I am having alot of anxiety at nights when i close my eyes about him my mind has gotten the best of me...

    I by no means will ever replace this sweet fellow...but as I was out today putting up my flyers at vet clinics and pet shops (i perform with my parrots and small animals for birthday parties) i came across a pet shop that had gotten in 3 adult ferrets from a lady who no longer care for them...and wouldnt u know it ine of them was a boy and look exactly like salem...i brought my 6 year old daughter after school and surprised her and got it for her...she said i feel so much better..I will always miss salem #1 but im gonna call im salem #2 and tabatha will have a freind again and so will I...it was so sweet and I know god guided me too this guy today...

    Hubby will problably be upset i bought another pet home u know how men can be but im just going to say..im not sorry i bought this ferret..im sorry u cant see there was no way for me not too it was all too perfect and healing therapy for us...my female ferret has been having anxiety and shivering this week(i work for a vet and he said she was greiving the loss of her mate) I still am sooo sad that i accidentally killed our pet and imagine it will take alot of time to heal from this hoorible accidnet...thank you all so much for your kind words and prayers i cant tell u how much they mean to me...i donated some money to the church in memory of salem this week and they will say a special prayer for him too...

    u know i have heard that when we finally go back home to heaven r family that has passed on is waiting for us but they wait as all the animals we ahve loved and loss greet us and that really warms my heart to know...tks again lori

    I just read your post.

    please don't feel guilty, it was an accident and he is not suffering now.

    It is so heart breaking when this happens to our animals. I hope you feel better soon.
    don't be so hard on yourself and I know that this must have been so horrible for you.

    just ask the lord to take some of this pain from your heart and he will.

    Love Lisa
