A sad update
It is my very sad duty to inform you of the passing of two of our beloved hutch residents.
Basil passed in late July after a short bout of illness which began with excessive drinking. At the vet they discovered a small lump on his neck and a UTI. The specialist we were then referred to recommended surgery to remove the lump which we went ahead with. Sadly Basil did not recover well afterwards and passed away, two days later in my arms.
In September our gorgeous Buddy also passed over the Rainbow Bridge. He was quiet after losing his best friend and we were in the process of discussing getting him a companion. However we came down one morning to find him quieter than usual. The little hoomans helped monitor him throughout the day but he did not improve with hand feeding and I rushed him to the vets that evening. He was given fluid injections under the skin but they weren’t sure what was wrong. Despite being fed every three hours through the night he passed away in the early hours of the following morning.
I’m so sorry I cannot bring happier news. I am however looking to start blogging again this week so felt I needed to update you first.
Nacho and Noah are happy and well with plenty of stories to share with you soon.
I hope you have all been well and any news you can share about the time we have missed with you all is not as sad as my own.
