Today has been a day of extremes, a lovely video of all the little guys this morning, which I uploaded onto facebook and then the devastation of our darling little Rocky finally losing his hard fought battle to survive. He had been such a brave little warrior, trying his hardest to thrive and live and we battled day and night to keep him going.
Today, however, it was as if he said ‘I can’t do this any more’. He hadn’t gained any more weight, after such a good day yesterday. He was having, what looked to be like, mini seizures, he would try to suckle, go at it like crazy for a few seconds, then fall off and either curl himself into a little ball, or go rigid and shiver. It was all too much and we couldn’t watch him suffer any longer, just for us to say we kept him alive.
Needless to say, I’m not posting any more photos today, we will, hopefully, be back to (relative) normal tomorrow.
Rocky will be buried under the hydrangea bush, where his mother used to dig before the babies were born, so it has meaning for us all. I shed a tear for you my darling little man, I only knew you for a brief time, but you were so well loved – rest easy beautiful Rocky.
