I have such sad news to share. Tudor just passed away. [View all]

He was OK this morning. As the day went on he got quieter and sleepier. Unfortunately there are NO emergency vet clinics open on the weekend in this whole county!!!

I have been sitting with him, all afternoon, giving him liquids and holding him. About 10 minutes ago I knew he was gone.

I did everything I could and have no idea what caused his death. Maybe his mother sensed something I didn't. and that's why she neglected him.

The one thing I can say I'm grateful for is that I gave him one week of life he wouldn't otherwise have had.

And I am crushed beyond repair.

Thank all of you who were such a part of his short existence on this earth.
