My ferret who is 7+ years old. I actually gave him to my bf a few years ago because I wasn't allowed to have pets in my apartment. I got the ferret when he was a baby, and now I think he's dying. The other night we found him in his cage lying in a weird position...we took him out of his cage and he was so weak. He didn't eat any of his food and he wouldn't take any water. We had to drop water into his mouth just to get him to drink. It was already really late and my bf had work the next day so we just tried to give him as much water as he would take. Then yesterday when my bf got home from work, he tried to feed him again...and again he wouldn't even lick the water bottle. So he got the bright idea to use a saline bottle for contacts so that he could just drop the water into Fuzzy's mouth. He said Fuzzy seemed a little stronger and was able to hold his head up...I don't know what possessed him to do this, but my bf tried to feed Fuzzy Ensure. He said he thought of that because they feed it to old people and that it's packed with vitamins and other supplements. Fuzzy drank almost half the bottle. So at least he took something. I was working the past two days so we haven't been able to take him to the vet. We're taking him tomorrow after my bf gets home from work, and I think they're probably going to put him to sleep. It's so sad seeing him like this.
