Sad...

I hate to have to tell this...I almost did not tell about it at the beginning simply because I was afraid this would be the outcome. But Clover died this morning while I was holding him. He had not ate much yesterday....and this morn when I got up to feed him, he was so cold, even though I still had the heating pad in his cage. I held him trying to snuggle him and get him warm but he died while I was cuddling him to me. I could feel the congestion in his chest.

I had the thought where I wondered if he caught what I had, but I know when Roger first brought him to me, I did not think he would live cause he coughed a time or two and I felt it in his little chest. I was really beginning to think he just might make it, but I never felt sure. He was just so tiny. And just a couple days ago, so alive. It was hard to get him to be still long enough to eat.

The day has sure seemed empty without him....

Rose, how truly sad for you. You gave him some time though - that counts.

You surely did your best for him. So sorry he didn't make it.

It is really very sad to lose a pet.
You did your best for him and that is what matters.

Oh no Rose, I am so sorry! But just think about the fact that for a few days 'Clover' was loved, well fed and enjoyed, thank you for caring for Clover and sharing the few days with all of us! Thinking about you and caring!

How terrible for you - it hurts so much to lose something that was so dear. But you gave him the best he could have got and I'm sure he loved you as much as you loved him.

Rose, sorry I've got no idea who Clover was. A pet I presume? So sorry for your lost. Do take care...

I have followed the story of Clover - 'he' was so tiny. I had rabbits as pets as a kid and I know it is sad when this happens.
