#4377 - 12/07/02 02:05 PM gosh i was sooo dumb......

<img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" /> I never thought i'd wind up posting here, but due to my stupidity the day has arrived.
The Pair Twinkles (which is the firstborn out of my first pair of gliders Sky and Willow) and Abby have their favourite sleeping spot a coconut house, with a large blankie inside.
Well what happened was that they apparently got the blankie pulled out cause they must have gotten their claw stuck in it.
This has occasionally happened before, and i would open their cage and tuck the blankie and them back in the cocnut house.
But this time, Twinkles escaped out of the cage and a cat that i'm taking care of for a neighbor right now, a very good hunter got a hold of him before i did <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" /> ... It was too late, and he passed away in my hand. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" />
I should've put the cat up... i was soo duuuuumb

Now poor Abby has a joey itp still, and she will be stressed out and upset... i'll make sure to keep her close to me after i get the cat outta here, since i'm supposed to give her back tomorrow. My cats could care less, they don't try to hunt my gliders.


So now i worry about Abby, and her baby itp, will they be allright ? Will there be a bigger chance of her rejecting her baby now ?
Ugh i could really kick myself in the behind over this...
I was soo attached to Twinkles anyhow, since he was my first joey ever... <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" /> <img border="0" alt="upset" title="" src="graemlins/upset.gif" />
This really stinks since i am working on giving the gliders their own room, and they were to move in this weekend.....

Tanja, I am so sorry this happened to you. I know how much you care for your little ones.
I hope that Abby and her ITP joey will be OK. I think she should be able to raise it by herself. Keep an eye out on her, and make sure she is happy. She will need your support for a while.

I could only imagine how you are feeling right now. I am so sorry this has happen. Just keep Abby close to you and pay extra attention to her. I hope that you and her will recover from your loss and she will have a healthy joey to live on the memory Twinkles. <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" />

Losing a glider is hard, and it seems that when it is the result of an accident, we blame ourselves more than the actual events.

I lost my very first glider to an accident and blamed myself to the point of almost not getting another one.

But, we learn and with the help of caring friends get through somehow.

My prayers are with you during this time.

Well Karen,
this is the way i feel somewhat still, my first thought was, "man if i can't even ensure my glider's saftey, then i don't deserve to keep the others".

But i also thought of how they would feel if i "punished" them by getting rid of them, it wasn't their fault this happened. <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/crying.gif" />

So i'm just going to have to be even more cautious, and expect the unexpected.
But even though my logical mind knows this i still feel horrible.

Thanks to everyone that has responded.

Tanja

I'm so sorry for your loss - I truly hope Mom and Baby are ok - extra TLC from you should do the trick!!

I know it's sad and hard to go through but you can do it! Twinkles will see you at the Bridge <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" />

Gosh Tanja, I am so sorry. Things were somewhat out of the ordinary at your house, and it is not your fault. Accidents happen...I know...easy to say right? Give mama some extra lovin <img border="0" alt="heart" title="" src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" /> .

Hugs and prayers sent your way.

Tanja: so sorry to hear about Twinkles. I know how hard it is to lose the first joey ever born as I lost my beloved BooBear in July 2002 & still miss him greatly. What happened was a sad but unforseen accident which could happen to any one of us. Just give a lot of extra love to Abbey and cherish the fact that Twinkles' memory will go on with the birth of their little joey shortly.
