My beloved ferret passed away.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-10:24
Well, it has been two months as she passed away on the 11th of July, it takes time to digest that, and I didn't, yet, by the way. 

All those who didn't live with a pet will have hard time to understand that, but it breaks the heart, truly. The feeling of emptiness is enormous. 

During these 8 years we shared together, her and myself, we had great and bad times, but unforgettable times. 

I really don't know what to add. It took me two months to write these words. 

Here are the last pictures I took of her, one year ago. 

She loved to sleep on and in my daughter's bed: 

And to play with the waves, on the beach. 

She was / is exceptional. 

Goodbye, Tagada. I love you. 


I feel very sorry for you dear Nico.

I had several dogs when i was a kid. I know the feeling 😑.

I still remember how I felt when I lost my dog in July 2011. A terrible experience. I think I am not ready to have a new pet. Thanks, Alberti.

Take time. When the right new friend (pet friend) apears, you will know 😉

Merci, alberti.

Goodby Tagada, I hope you've gone without pain.

 By: Mary Anny : September 1st, 2021-10:34
My condolences Nicolas. Animals often make us suffer more than humans when they leave us.

She passed away without pain. I was with her. Grazie, Simone.

RIP Tagada.

And terribly sorry for your loss, Nico. I never had a pet, but I can imagine how much it must have hurt to lose a loved companion. 

Stay strong my friend, and continue to enjoy the memories of the time that you spent together 


Merci beaucoup, Hussam.

I’m so sorry my friend.

 By: Jocke - Bad Santa : September 1st, 2021-10:37

Thank you, Jocke.

Sorry for your loss. Lily has a guinea pig, 7.5 years old and this little animal is part of the family, so I can understand your feelings. Take care Nicolas.

 By: Bobbe : September 1st, 2021-10:42

Indeed, a real part of the family.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-10:44

It never goes away…you just learn to live with it…irreplaceable.

 By: myles721 : September 1st, 2021-10:42

Very true, my friend. Thanks for your kind words.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-10:43

Sorry for you Nico, a ferret is definitely not a common pet, but probably very exciting to interact with !

 By: montres1 : September 1st, 2021-10:53

I can just tell you that she was a great partner ( even in crime ), very tender and affectionate, always willing to play. An amazing and surprising friend.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-14:18

I guess that

no words in any language will make your grief any better. But remember that you allowed her to have an outstanding good time with you and yours over many years which possibly any other ferret will ever have. Maybe life is live and let live and enjoy the limited time that has been given to us all. So you did very well.

That's sure that no other ferret had this life. Stealing Rolexes, having breakfast, celebrating Halloween, having coffee on the morning, having a ride in the P 1800 and the Alpine, enjoying baths in the sea... Thanks, mon ami.

Oh, that's very cool life for any pet, I'm sure dear. It's very gratifying to have shared your moments with the loved ones..

 By: Pun : September 1st, 2021-16:45
We have a dog and it's the most pampered child we've had. I can understand your feelings...
May Lord bless the departed soul and give you strength to bear the loss.

Thanks for your b-very kind words, Pun. Much appreciated.

Very sorry to learn of your loss. Animals can bring so much joy to everyday life. Hopefully, time will bring new peace about the loss and unite you with a new companion.

 By: orahu : September 1st, 2021-11:16

A new companion? That is not in the tube, for the moment. I still have to mourn over... But I do get your point, and you are probably right, but it is way too soon.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-14:25

Yes. Totally understand. I meant sometime in the future.

 By: orahu : September 1st, 2021-15:04

We'll see. Between the ferret and my dog who passed away in July 2011, I am a bit " vaccinated " with pets, though...

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-15:05

I’m so sorry for you. He’s also a little part of this community as we could follow your little friend through the years…

 By: dedestexhes : September 1st, 2021-11:20

Yes, that's the reason of this post. She had her fans, here.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-14:26

I know the feeling.... take care Nicolas !

 By: Bruno.M1 : September 1st, 2021-11:27

I know, my friend, I know. Death sucks.

 By: amanico : September 1st, 2021-14:26

Im sorry to hear this, Nico....

 By: ChristianDK : September 1st, 2021-11:29
I have always enjoyed your crazy and fun stories and pictures with Tagada.... May she rest in peace.
