I am sad to announce that Otto passed away unexpectedly overnight this weekend. He had been doing perfectly well as far as I could tell; he showed no signs of being sick at all. But when I went in to let them out this morning, he had died in his sleep. He was curled up in his blanket and his eyes were closed, so at least it looks like he went easily and without any distress.

In the last week, I had been finding him and PJ sleeping together when I went to check on them in the mornings, so it looked like they were starting to get along very well. PJ seems to be doing fine; he had always been an only ferret until I got him, though, so I think he will re-adjust well.

Otto had just turned five. He seemed to be getting along all right after the loss of Butters, but maybe he was missing him. It's hard to tell with ferrets; they are very stoic. He was a good boy, and definately my special favorite; I will miss him very much.

That was me; I was apparently not logged in. Sorry.
