The Last of the Tasks
Today I decided I must finish the last two things - ordering the urn and filing the last insurance claim. Both of these feel so final and so sad.
For the urn - I decided that at the end of their lives I will want all of the ferrets to be together - I think they would want that too - so I found an artist who will do a hand painted urn with all five ferrets painted on there. We will make a base so we can have engraved metal plates added with the names and dates when the time comes. I gathered up the pictures that the artist needed to get started - it will take her four to five weeks. I can't wait to see it.
I also gathered all of the paperwork, filled out the claim form and faxed it off to the insurance today. Sigh...
I think the only thing left to do now is finish the last load of critter laundry of blankets and beds and my list will be complete. Each day it gets a little easier - although tonight it was strange to call the ferrets and only say four names. They all came out promptly - which Clooney never would have done - he would have said "talk to the paw - I am sleeping". :)
