1975 - 1988
"I still feel your presence "Rebbie" and am grateful for all the wonderful memories of showing you to your championship. You were so gentle and patient with us mere mortals. I know you await at the Rainbow Bridge."

Teya and Mozu
November, 1991 - October, 1996
For Teya and Mozu who so enriched my life that I will carry their memory with me always and may I never forget the companions they were when I had no others. I do not know how it comes to pass that both should leave me so soon and so close to one another. A better part of my life has been made void, I can only hope that there is a place in the universe for such little lives lost. For teya and mozu, I loved you dearly.

Kitty, Bear, and Bungee
Kitty, my first ferret. So tiny and sweet. Wish the vet knew had to fix your problem. Keep stealing those socks and make sure Bear doesn't sit on you! Bear, such a mean little man. Guess you didn't like being thrown from a moving car window. You turned into my fat little lover boy. God, how I miss you. You got sick so quickly, I hope I made the right decision. No fighting with Bungee (yes, he does start it all). Bungee, you were our old man, Lawrence's first. We miss you. You too went so quickly. We were going to make 'that decision', but you didn't give us time. Don't pick on Bear. Hope your waiting for us. Seems as though Callie will be joining you soon. Don't make her scream. Remember, she doesn't know she's a ferret.

Harley and Patches
Harley-Some would say just a fish, but oh, what a beatiful fish. The prettiest silver and black Angelfish, so big and so sweet. The tank looks empty without you. I'm sorry about what happened but I couldn't control a midnight equipment failure. Hope they have a huge lake just for Angelfish and you will find a pretty mate. Miss you.
Patches-Pretty calico Angelfish. Sorry that your lips were deformed. You lived quite awhile, but I could see that the growth finally made it so you couldn't eat. I couldn't let you starve, so I did what I thought was right. Now you can eat all you want. You and Harley keep eachother company. I'll look for you in that big lake.

I miss you very much my sweet baby boy.You gave me so much.Your unconditional love and acceptance were always there for me.Everyone said you were really a person in a kitty's body!Our bond is eternal and I am glad you are free from pain.
I will love you always,Mom

Ali
January 27, 1984 - October 20, 1995
My first Pug dog. My little princess. I miss you so much, sweet Ali. I wish I had a time machine so I could get you again. I'm sorry I was selfish and didn't make 'that decision'. I wanted you to be alright, but you died a hard death. Well, your pain is gone and now you can breathe just fine. Hannibal misses his little sister. But, of course, he still isn't the boss. That was your job. Kira has taken over, but no one chases the kitties as well as you could. You didn't get to know your little sister very well. You could have taught her alot. She would have loved you, just like the rest of us. When I do get a Pug again, I'm not replacing you. That's impossible. Wait for me Ali, watch over the others. I cry for you everyday, sweet Ali. Hope there is someone to rub your ears. I send sweet kisses for my sweet pig dog. I'll look for you first thing.

There sure are a bunch of Bandits here at the Bridge!!! So, when it comes time for you to hold your pet again, please don't call them by their first name, or you'll get more Bandits then you'll know what to do with! ;) ......Rocky G. Poore Ferret

Booboo
passed on to the Bridge on January 20, 1997
Booboo, Our innocent little Kit. You were rescued too late I'm afraid, but the love you gave even when in pain, will never be forgotten. Though the last week of your little life was spent with the vet, you showed your love with kisses. We're all happy but sad that your gone and out of pain. The rest of the fur balls who never got to play with you miss you too. You were so special to us all. Your little life was precious to us, unfortunatly you had to be rescued from a two year old who obviously abused your frail little body. If only we had gotten you sooner you could have played with the others, it wasn't to be. We know you're happy now, we know your playing around the picnic table at the bridge. The pain is gone replaced with freedom and happiness. We can only hope you knew how much you were loved by all of us. We'll meet in the future I'm sure where we'll all be able to play the days away.

The time came when your hoomans deceided to have a hooman baby, and didn't trust you. (Well, you did do a number on that little bird). So, you came here to be permenatly babysat. Our creepies tried to play with you, remember your screams?? We thought they were hurting you, they weren't even touching you!!

For all of the random acts of love and devotion you gave me throughout the years, I will always love and cherish your memory. When I close my eyes I see your silky white ears flying as you raced to greet me at the door -- even though I just went to the mail box.. I cherish the memory of your devotion when you where just a puppy, and stayed by my side throughout my battle with cancer. You raised my daughters, and even learned to love their babies. I knew that when you were ready to take your leave, you

Elwood

Elwood, my second "born", was my best friend in the world. He was so loving, so playful, so happy, always ready to trade kisses. Even when he was on his way over the Rainbow Bridge, he tried to comfort me, to tell me that it was okay, he was ready to go. But he should be here. *I* was not ready to let HIM go. I was not ready. He was so young for a fuzzy. The four of us who remain have a hole in our hearts that he once filled. We will someday learn to fill what hole with his memories. Until than, we cry. I love you, Elwood. We all miss you. I hope they give you 'Tone every day like we did!

Ivy
December, 1995 - September, 1996
You have always been a fighter. I am truly sorry that you have lost your first battle. I was there for you every moment I could be. You were my Pride and Joy. You were my night and day. I truly loved you. I am sorry for the fights we would get into, hissing and hissing at each other until I gave up and you won. What would I do to do that again. I miss you so much. And the way you left me was the most kindest thing you could have done. I had a voice telling me to take her outside. We were under a tree, in the shade, and in the warmth of the morning sun. You had passed on in my arms. That means more than the world to me that you were with me rather than being alone, cage, or at the vets. The others will be lost without you - Sonja, Roscoe, Dudley, and Oliver. Your human friends miss you also - Gail, Amy, Kathy, Patty, Brooke, and Brian. You had left a special place in my heart that will never be fulfilled by another. I will miss you terribly, and please wait for us at the Rainbow Bridge.
We will always love you and miss you, Blanca, Sonja, Roscoe, Dudley, and Oliver.

Ivan!

IVAN! first came to us as a "biggie" ferret on sale in the local pet store. He started his life with us as just plain Ivan, but he soon turned into IVAN! the terrible! He was a ferret's ferret - he loved life and trouble. He lived with out fear or thoughts of tomorrow. This time IVAN!'s exploits got him into too much trouble. He will be sorely missed by his family. Rest in peace IVAN!. We love you!!

Izabella "Izzy"
August 15, 1977 - December 21, 1996
My girl always endured my moods, yet was never in a bad one herself. If I tripped over her and cursed her, she soon forgave me and was back in my lap purring as always. We both shared the longest relationship either of us has known, and you always gave me unconditional love.
I miss you very much, Izzy, I love you even more.

Iggy
September 7, 1983 - January 14, 1997
Our Iggy Is gone now and the pain has lessen, but the lonliness is till with us. I hope with all my heart that Rainbow Bridge really does exists.

You were both a joy to have as pets. Always with our love! Frank & Kathy (dad & mom)

We greatly miss this playful and affectionate ferret. With love always Furrita and Edward.

Isabella Lemur
left for the Bridge on October 8, 1996
We went to the pet store to get a baby ferret. When we were there we saw a grown ferret kept seperate. They said she was mean and bit the other ferrets, but she was so sweet to us. We got a baby ferret AND Lemur.Lemur was very scared of our three other ferrets, two cats, and dog,but with love and patience, she was soon running and playing with the rest of them.
Lemur loved soda. She would hide all day and as soon as you left a coke unattended, down it would go and she would be off with the can. One time she got out of the house, but we found her quick, because she was trying to drag a coke can with her under the shed.She finally learned how to play.
She was a special, fun little ferret. I hope that we made her days as special as she made ours.
Munchkin, Baby, and Diablo miss you, little Lemur.And we miss you, too.
We love you,Lemur.
Goodbye.

You are greatly missed, Tessa. You, who always behaved as a Lady. I miss you waiting at the door and having you just sit and wait to be picked up and cuddled. Enjoy your rest under the tree. No more pain and medicine, just sweets and running with the other fuzzies on the other side. I love you.

Princess Mee, I named you for a poem by Tolkien. You filled my life with
laughter and cheer as you ran around stealing shoes and cat toys. You were
so friendly and affectionate. I will miss your kisses and feeling you pull
off my socks. You will never be far from me...and now you can run and play.
No more pain, Mee. Just play now. I love you and I miss you. Watch for
me, Sweetie.

Minka
1995 - September 29, 1996
No one knows what you meant to me. You were the best ferret I have had or will ever have. I remember the first day I met you. I was at the park and there you were. Like an angel sent from heaven to me;there you were. Every day I cry for you, but I have a peace inside, because you suffer no longer. If I could take those 60 seconds back I would. I wish I could have stopped that dog from biting you. Then came the worst part, you suffered so terribly for three days. As you got worse, my heart broke both for know what I was thinking, and you were always there for me when I needed you. You could always make me laugh when I was down! Oh, I have so many mermories in the short time you were with me! I REALLY LOVE YOU MINKA! ! !

Miki
left for the Bridge on August, 1985
To my best friend, the one who stood by me, protected me, and was always like a sister to me. I miss you so much, Miki. Wish I could've said goodbye, but I was never given the chance.

Missie
December 22, 1992 - December 26, 1996
Missy was the first ferret we had and we never realized what a wonderful pet they made. I miss her in the mornings when she sit up and beg for a piece of potatoe, it had to be pealed! We miss her when we ate jelly donuts. We miss her when we get out of the shower and she would always lick the water from your toes, not biting them. But, most of all I miss her in the evenings when she would lay in my lap and just enjoy the peace and quite while petting her. When she passed away she laid in my arms and I know she knew she wasn't alone when she took her last breath. We love and miss her very much. Thank you for a wonderful four years. Penny & Dick

Frisky Fritz Moritz

Oliver
July, 1996 - October, 1996
Ollie, you are truly missed. We had very little time together and I had wished that could have gotten to know each other better. Everyone was so concerned for you. You were on everybody's mind for days. I am sorry that you were one of the few percent to contract distemper even though you were updated on all of you shots. You are a special little guy. I had dreams of you, Brian had dreams of you, before you were even born. I decided to get you that day because I wanted out dreams to come true, whic You got so sick so soon after that. I truly believe that I had tried everything with you, even Dr. Kendrick had tried everything. We knew that you were too sick to get better. I hope you aren't mad with my decision. I think you wanted it that way. In fact the next day, I saw a bi-colored rainbow. One side a cinnamon color, and the other being a white color for Ivy. And after a minute ir so, it turned into a beautiful rainbow. I knew you two had met each other there, otherwise I wouldn't have see

Pandora
July 4, 1991 - September 6, 1995
Pandora was the greatest little critter anyone could ever wish for. She
hopped, danced, and played with great abandon. She was loving, and gave
lots of kisses. When we brought her home, Medusa showed her the ropes
and all the fun stuff to get into. When she wanted to play, she would lay
on her back as innocent as could be and wave her paws in the air. Her
favorite playmate, Medusa, would be more than happy to take up the
invitation! When we brought her home to Cleopatra and Ceasar, she didn't
mind one bit. Pandora gave me many fond and happy memories. She could
make me laugh until I felt like my sides would bust. And she could make
me mad at her for knocking for my Slurpee, which she could never get
enough of those tasty treats! I could never stay mad at her long though.
No matter how many more critters I get, I'll never forget my Pandora. She
made us all so happy. We will see her again someday at the Rainbow Bridge.

For Robin, who opened my eyes to a world that I had never before experienced. His trust and love, from the moment I first took a tiny ferret kit into my hands to the moment I felt his breathing grow shallow in a badly broken body have overwhelmed me with the power of his presence in my life. There could never have been enough time to say all he deserved to hear...

Reno D. Ferret
November 1, 1988 - November 26, 1996
Reno D. Ferret, a lifelong resident of the Owens Valley and trusted companion of Chuck Thistlethwaite died today at the age of eight years. Known for his gentle and affectionate nature, Reno will be remembered as a good and faithful pet. He was a cancer survivor for the past four years and finally succumbed to the disease.
Due to the arcane laws of the State of California, Reno spent his entire life in hiding. One of his greatest pleasures was to be able to play outside on the front lawn. California is the only state in the U.S., indeed vNorth America, where the possession of domestic ferret is a crime. In lieu of condolences, his family requests you take a moment to call your State Senator and Assemblyperson and request their support for the legalization of domestic ferrets as pets in California.

Rudy Roman

this earth.

Soab
1971 - May 9, 1994
Dear sweet Soab, you were a really unintelligent cat, but it was because there was so much love in you, there was no room for anything else. Dad named you Soab, (acronym for Son of a Bit**) because we surprised him by getting you while he was on a business trip. But you quickly won all of our hearts. Soab, you raised me since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, and you came very close to seeing me through college as well. I just wish there was a way to hold you one last time, even for a few minutes, just to say goodbye. Soab, I don't know if you can hear me or read this now where you are, but I pray that I turned out all right and that you are not disappointed in me.
Rest in peace, Fleabag, and know that when I pass on, I will be looking for you. We miss you so terribly much.
Your devoted human, Bryan

June, 1983 - April, 1988
My first ferret, whose patience with my poking, prodding and learning seemed to be inexhaustible. A lot of people never understood the joke of an albino ferret being named Spot, but you always seemed to. Life was a playground to you, and I hope I learned that from you.

Saturn
May, 1991 - June 13, 1996
Saturn was my favorite cat of all time. I live on a ranch and have had as many as 60 felines at one time. Saturn was a Manx with yellow base coat and orange stripes in a circular pattern across each side. At the time of his death, he weighed nearly 20 lbs. and was a good 12" tall. He traveled with me everywhere in the five years that he was alive, always sitting on the back of my seat while I drove. He loved me most of all but he was best friends with my ferret, Vada (now also deceased); my rat terr l accident) occured in Louisville, KY. I had been out of town until 1:00 a.m., came home and let him out as I sometimes did, thinking he was safer at night from traffic. At 5 a.m., I went out to hear him yelling. I picked him up and delivered him to an emergency pet trauma center where they concluded that he had a crushed pelvis and broken back. These injuries separately could have healed so that he would live but together they would not. I left him there under pain killers for a while to see if he would regain feeling in his hind l t the time. Rags tryed to wake him until I put up the cross.

My little one you are gone. Never again will I laugh with glee at your dance of joy. You brightened my life with your little pink eyes. I will never get to feel your little pink toung on my cheek. You got so sick so quick, and there was nothing I could do but try and feed you. Then they told me that your little kindeys had failed, and that you were in pain, and nothing could be done. I decided to have you set free to go to the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you so little baby. I will love your furry little self always. Dance with joy over the Rainbow. I love you baby!

Sadie
January, 1994 - January 16, 1997
Sadie was my first. She taught me alot, especially how to laugh again.She gave me many,many wonderfull fun filled times. Her favorite place to sleep was inside a dresser, she found a way into it even when it was closed. She loved to go outside and play in the grass or dig in the dirt and also climb and slide down the sand hill. Her favorite toys were squeaky dog toys and her favorite treat was to be given a handfull of the dogs food. I don't think she knew she was a Ferret, I think she thought she was on

Tasha, first and most beloved ferret of the Scherschel family.
You were our one and only precious "Little Bug". There will
never be another like you. Thank you for all the wonderful
memories and the love you so freely gave.

have ever seen. She loved everyone, especially children. Unfortunately,
her last days were full of suffering. As much as I miss her, I know that
she is not suffering any more."

Smokey Tripp
passed on to the Bridge on June 24th, 1996
Smokey will be missed by his family. He was adopted
from a shelter in 1977. I hope he has a nice
comfortable rocking chair to sleep in and plenty of
catnip toys to play with.
So long buddy.

Tabitha
June 23, 1994 - August 22, 1996
Tabitha was my cat, when we first got her at the shelter, she jumped right out of the cage and into my arms, she was allways playful, and lovable. Even when she did something bad, she always looked cute, conning her way out of trouble. But then a disease that had been dormant for 2 yrs. just hit, she stopped eating and drinking, we did our best to help her, we forced food and water down her mouth, but she still wouldn't eat or drink.
I loved that cat so much, I miss her.

Tara
June 2, 1992 - September 15, 1996
Tara was a one of a kind hooded rat,and companion,she loved to play, and curl up inside my shirt as I watched T.V.or spoke with friends. As she slept in her cage she would cuddle up to her friend Justin,a soft toy mouse,knowing it would be waiting for her at the end of the day. She was a constant companion for me since she was 9 wks.old and was a loving friend to the children of our neighborhood and she loved to climb on their shoulders and lick their ears. She was diagnosed with cancer,and passed away in her sleep sometime during the night a week later. She will be very much missed by everyone.

Taz
December 15, 1994 - October 19, 1996
Taz we miss you, Zoey, Tipper, Merlyn,and BJ have all been looking for you tonight. They know something is wrong. I wish you were here Taz, we all loved you soooooo much. Mom, Dad, Kim, Cheryls and your best friends.

Tasha the Great
March 25, 1994 - September 25, 1996
She's my BESTEST Buddy! She made me happy when I was sad, and taught me how to love. I will always miss my beloved Tasha Ferret. Things don't seem as great as they were when she was here. I hope she has a great big bowl of Lucky Charms to steal the marshmellows from. I love you Tasha, and miss you terribly. Please tell Jesus I said Hi for me.

Scarlett O'Hara Taylor
September 15, 1976 - July 13, 1989
Scarlett, I miss you so much and am looking forward to the
day we can walk across Rainbow Bridge together.

Tickie
December 17, 1995 - April 1, 1996
Tickie was taken away from us way too soon. He was the smartest ferret I have ever seen, he figured out the cupboards within a couple weeks. I will always remember his bright eyes and his sounds he made when he was so happy playing with his mommy and daddy. We will think of him everyday and hope he is in a better place, having fun with his brother, Tahvee.

Tahvee (brother of Tickie)
December 17, 1995 - July 22, 1996
Tahvee was our special baby boy. He was such a lover baby and just loved to cuddle with his mommy. He brought quite joy to our lives, and he is missed deeply. We think of him everyday, and will forever remember our baby boy.

Toby
July 5, 1993 - November 15, 1996
Toby was my mother-in-law's dog that we took care of most of the time. He was our dog, Friday's "mate" and the father of our puppy, Toby's Shadow. He was hyper and a big pain, but he was loved by all of us. His son started to get the characteristics of Toby right after he died. So we feel he is still with us in a BIG way. WE MISS YOU TOBY!!

Ticky
April 1, 1996 - April 23, 1996
... he always liked that sheet.

Toto
October, 1992 - December 19, 1996
My greatest comfort at this time comes in knowing that you are healthy again and restored to the fun-loving terrier I loved so dearly. You will be in my heart always, dear friend. Love Monica

Uwe
May 17, 1995 - November 7, 1996
A poem of love for my lost Uwe:
I will miss you Uwe and all that you stood for in my life. Don't worry though; you will be with your friends here at the rainbow bridge, and will have a good time until I meet you there as well many years from now. Please understand that I will manage without you and will silently pray for you every day. You died from Inbred Degenerative anemia. I am very sorry that you were bred like this and feel bad for others like you as well. Take care of yourself remember all of the good times that we have had together over the past few months. We will miss you presence, and think of you all the time. Goodbye for now, Uwe, it has been a lot of fun.
Sincerly, Max, dad, mom, Sabrina, and friends that loved you as well. :-)

I didn't know you well because I didn't own you. I could only sponsor you through a ferret shelter. But I know that I and a lot of wonderful people cared a lot for you and you were a life companion for one very special little ferret, Brownie. We will all miss you very much. I wish we could have helped you more.
Love, Shanna, your shelter friends, and Brownie

Yolkie
MY first cat, named so because your orange color reminded me of rich egg yolks. You were such a sweet cat. I loved the way you would sleep with your eyes wide open. Rest well, Yolkie. Keep all our other babies company. Don't let Ali pick on you, she loves to chase kitties, but she won't hurt you. Catch a birdie for me (but don't hurt it!!)
