Saying goodbye......
« on: January 08, 2011, 08:31 »
My beautiful Tilly went to sleep on my lap this morning after fighting so hard to stay alive. She never recovered from moulting in such harsh bitterly cold weather and couldn't put weight on. Tried everything possible but still feel angry I couldn't stop it from happening. She is my first to go and I know she won't be the last over the time I shall have them, but it still hurts so much.

Sorry to hear your sad news  :( Unfortunately they use up so many calories trying to keep warm that there's nothing in reserve  :(

Thankyou for all your kind messages - the other three girls are doing their very best to keep me busy and sitting with them to shed some tears does help.
