Fiona, nickname "Pee-pot" passed away last night. She was our first and smallest glider. She was almost 6 years old...

When they say they hide their illness well, listen to them, because it's true...

Maybe someday, I'll add the last few days of her story, but not today.

We took her to the vet yesterday morning because the sparkle in her eyes was not there and she was lathargic seemed extra warm, belly seemed swollen and she hadn't eaten. She was not dehydrated. The night before when hubby checked on them she apparently wasn't herself, but he didn't tell me until the following morning. I feel even then it may have been too late.

The vet diagnosed kidney failure (renal failure) and sent us home with antibiotics just in case it wasn't too late. She said there was nothing left to do.

I held her most of the day, she was restless. She died while I was holding her last night. I saw the end coming. Hubby and I were able to say our goodbyes and give last kisses...

We let Stewie see her and say goodbye. It seemed the right thing to do. He sniffed her and gave her a kiss, and nervously sniffed around her for a bit. And then watched her from a distance for awhile...

I wanted to do a necropsy, but hubby wanted her undisturbed. The vet had already told us what was wrong and she knew the odds were against Fiona. I couldn't go against hubby's wishes as he is as close to her as I was.

We burried her this morning under the big oak tree in the back yard. She is at peace. Rest easy little one, we will see you again someday over the rainbow bridge. Then you can pee on me all you want again... In the meantime find some friends and play hide and seek, your favorite playtime game... Glide free Pee-pot, you taught us much, gave us smiles and laughs. My bra baby, our peanut butter toast stealer, our snuggler, Dad will miss watching TV with you snuggled in the recliner. Lots of memories to comfort us, you will be missed so much... But you'll never be forgotten... Now you'll never have be too tired to play, you can glide free finally forever...

Thank you for all your kind words, comfort and thoughts. Fiona was very special from the first day we got her.

We miss her so much and I will be telling her story of the last 5 days before her passing. But it's all too fresh and I don't want to miss the details. We had some strange activity in our home from Dot and Stewie for about 4 days before Fiona passed.

Once my heart can let go of that, and I can transfer it all right here, I plan to start a thread on new beginnings for both Dot and Stewie. They have become more interactive with us. Or maybe we have been more interactive with them... We'll see...

Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts heart
