Oh gosh I am SO SO sorry about your friend. :(
I have been there, unfortunately more than once, myself. If you ever need to talk, I'm more than happy to lend an ear and shoulder.
I'm glad the ex decided to take them in, though. Now they can stay together in a big ferret ball of cuddles.
I have a lot of unfortunate expenses coming up with my health and immigration stuff, so it may be a little while longer before we venture out and get this done, yet. Everything ended up falling right around this month and next month, because, well, why would it happen any other way, right? So I'm assuming we're about to be out about $1500 with that. Hopefully it won't be too bad.
UGH, I wish I could take them ALL in. Can they be split up at all? Unfortunately, we have placed ourselves under a pet limit of 5 (2 cats, 2 birds, and one ferret) if I get a ferret, so I would only be able to get away with one unless I started offering to do everyone's laundry, ha.
A friend of mine brought home a ferret kit today and is posting pictures of him on her FB. It is driving me crazy.
Is it the Ferret Aid Society you work with? Because I have had just about enough of seeing and not having, if you get my meaning. :p
