I have read that food poisoning is a big killer of kits, Meat left anytime in this heat will soon go bad, and as you said, they hide food in the nest which gets worse and then kits eat at it...

I always wondered if they got food poisoning.He looked peaceful not in pain or any sign of anything dodgy.The rest seem fine so far but were down from 7 to 3 :cry: having said that its her first litter and shes been so attentive to them very protective too.Has millions of milk and i feed a lot of dry ferret food too cos the heat and the councils moaning

Sorry about your ferrets mate, why the feck were the council concerned about a few ferrets? Bunch of morons.

Can't blame you, I would be a wreck if anything happened to mine, I like them as much as dogs lol.

Well here goes some of the explanations given prepare to laugh uncontroallably.

Theyre dangerous to the public

They may escape and kill other "domestic pets"

Theyre wild not domesticated animals

Just a few words of wisdom froma housing officer who admitted she knows f all about ferrets.It was either they go or the notice to evict me would be served been fighting this for months.I will still argue the point and have written a few letters and am taking legal action over it too late for the ferrets i know.I am determined to not leave this lie im fecking livid about it felt sick when i was putting them in the box to go and cried like a baby still welling up just passing the hutch and seein it empty.Even the dogs gutted.Neighbours are all really sympathetic most of them actually liked them to look at and watch them throw each other about and the odd sqaubble.I am going all out to make sure this cow loses her job shes fecked up so many times its untrue.I have 2 mastiffs here i dont know about and have never seen lol.This was based on me having four dog leads hanging in the hall when i only have two dogs :censored::wallbash: I also have a pitbull ROFL Will post the pic of my bitch who looks feck all like any pit i have ever seen gonna end up murderin this bint :chair::chair::chair::hunter: :download: im convinced shes an anti she hates "greyhounds" went out of her way to harass me over the ferrets and theres wads more could rant forever over her
