R.I.P. Furginia. :-(

R.I.P. Furginia


The Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Furginia was the first pet I bought from my own money.  I had to beg my mom to let me get her and then she had to beg my dad.  LOL!  They both gave in, I did tons of research on ferrets, and then one day before I work I went and plunked down almost 200 dollars for a baby ferret that kept biting me while I held her.  LOL!  My mom and I stopped by the pet store so I could get her some stuff and when I came back out my mom’s finger was bleeding because Furginia bit her because she was trying to touch her.  My mom said, and I quote “I could never love anything like this.”  Yeah, Furginia became her grandbaby and was smothered with hugs and kisses by the woman.  LOL!  Furginia was loved by everyone and was the sweetest thing.  She grew to trust is and was the princess of the family.  She will be greatly missed and forever loved by us all.  She’d been sick for a while and I did some research and learned she had something that couldn’t be healed.  So I choose to make her comfortable and decided that if she ever showed she was in pain I’d do the right thing and have her put to sleep.  She never showed that.  She was still herself up to the very end.  I found her curled up next to her favorite toy this morning, she thankfully passed in her sleep.  I love this little girl so much and I will forever miss her.  It will really hit me when the cage is out of my room tonight.  If you have animals give them an extra hug and kiss today for me and let them know they are loved.

I’ll talk to you all soon.  Bye for now.

Loves ya,


  1. Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry. :( I never have any idea what to say, losing a pet is so massively difficult. I'm glad you have such great memories of her, and can laugh about your adventures together even now. Hugs, hun.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Furginia :(

    Maybe her and my best dog Qutie, are playing together now.

    I lost my Qutie in 1995 and I still find myself crying over her pictures. She was my first dog, she was my heart.

    I love you and if you need me I am here.


  3. I'm so sorry you hear this.
    You have my sincere condolences.


Hello my lovelie, what's on your mind?
