Ben and Jasmine Tussling

Ben (bottom) tussles with Jasmine (top). This image was taken around Thanksgiving 1996. Ben (at 7 years) was the boss ferret who could put even Jasmine, the youngest ferret (1 1/2 years), in her place. Three months later Ben would have a golf-ball sized tumor removed from her pancreas. At this point we had no idea that anything was wrong.

Ben died on August 22, 1997 from lymphoma. Jasmine died June 18, 1999 from unknown causes after adrenal surgery.

Ben Dec 1989 - Aug 22, 1997
