Thanks to Janet UK for that comment. It made me smile.

The vet told me that she's old and just wearing out. Nothing to fix
with her. She is overweight and vet said, no need to starve her at
this point, just try to feed a bit less and try to make her exercise a
bit more. As her time is limited, no need to make her miserable with
dieting, etc.

She also told me to bring her back for quick death if I see her
suffering. geez ;-o

Anyway...she's still fine. I just wanted to thank ALL of you here
that wrote with support. It's a hard time here for me (and more for
her). It's a day to day thing...somedays good and somedays not so
good.

This could end at any time or it could go for months. I'll choose
months!
At least she still has her appetite. The best warning sign of an
animal dying soon is loss of appetite.

I took some pics of her this morning. Even though they look very
similar to other pics that I've sent, I can see in these pictures that
she doesn't look all that well.

Thanks to all for your support. Nice to see how we that always turn
mean can come together for support too.

what I mean that she just doesn't look so well?

Yes, not so bright in the face :/
At least she has had a great life, thanks to you, and still has for a
while yet if she still has an appetite. It's hard when it comes to
this stage of their life... I'm not looking forward to the time when
my girls pass on as I can't imagine life without them, they are family
members.

She looks sad sort of, but I think that's the light in her eyes. She
doesn't seem overweight to me.

We're all getting there, so we can relate on a personal level.

Not that personal, I'm not planning to spend any time keeping warm
inside Gary's shirt


LOL! No vacancies right now anyway. :-D

Yes, she's not looking very perky. Sorry Gary to hear that. Seems to
be normal aging though I'm no ferret specialist.

I adopt elderly aminals by choice and give them a final indian summer
so often 6mo-2years is all they have left. I make them good ones best
as i know how. I add this to explain that sometimes, if no pain
involved, best to let them pass quietly in their sleep if a vet has
checked and there is no pain or it is controlled with meds.

It's too bad the RFC web site isn't maintained these days. There's a
section for RFC pets and Mia's picture certainly belongs there.

Oh please, put her on a diet and get her to exercise? Mia is the
equivalent of 90, right?! I wonder if her vet will be on a diet and
jogging around the block at that age. Heh.

I take it as a good sign that Mia is still interested in food. In my
(admittedly limited) experience, the time to get concerned is when pets
show *no* interest in any kind of food.

Anyway...she's still fine. I just wanted to thank ALL of you here

I'm sure a lot of us know exactly how you feel. She's family.

She looks like she's feeling her age. As long as she's not in pain,
keep her close and keep her comfy. I know you do. My thoughts are with
you.

The RFC web site certainly is maintained, just need to email the site
keeper (Chatty Cathy), just click on the "webmaster" link:
http://www.recfoodcooking.org/
However I doubt Mia's picture qualifies for posting until Gary posts
his picture.

Of course he'd have to email the picture to her. But Cathy doesn't
really pay much attention to the cite anymore. She said herself last
year she almost didn't renew the subscription.
