RIP Mojo

by Azreel | November 17th, 2007

We lost one of the ferrets tonight. Mojo apparently got an intestinal blockage, but by the time we found out it was too late. She was a fairly lazy lethargic ferret to begin with, so when she didn’t jump out of the hammock with the rest of the fuzzles it wasn’t unusual. It wasn’t until putting the others back up that dreamdesire noticed that she was still there and was mewling softly.

Her body temp was 84.3F (normal is over 104F), her abdomen was bloated and there was a solid mass there, and she was in severe shock. We put her on a heating blanket in a last ditch effort to get her body temp up, but she died less than 30 minutes after we found her. Apparently severe intestinal blockages can happen very quickly, and hers set within less than 24 hours. She will be missed.

Mojo is the one on the bottom left.
