<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />We lost Chibi in June to sudden onset pneumonia. Where, how, or why I have no idea. Kawaii, whom I call Little Girl, was sad and lonely, so we bought her a female joey we named Koumori. They became fast friends.

At the beginning of August I noticed a swelling on Little Girl's cheek so we took her to the vet. They drained the abcess and gave her antibiotics. She was her sweet self until toward the end of August when the swelling started comming back and pushing up against her eye. We rushed back to the vet where they again drained the abcess, took X rays which showed no involvement of bone or teeth. The vet said she had a piece of mealy worm stuck in her cheek, the hard skin, kind of like when you get the shell of a popcorn kernal stuck in your teeth.

We took her home with more meds and high hopes. A few days later,she came out of the pouch with her eye stuck shut with pus, plus she seemed lethargic so we ran back to the vet on a Sunday. He said the swelling hadn't come back and she wasn't septic, that she had conjunctivitis. He was worried about her lack of appetite. We were to make glider smoothies and try to get her to eat. Monday morning we got her up for meds and her eye looked better, she refused her mealy which she loved. That evening when I rolled her cage out I saw her on the bottom in her cube, she did lick a little worm guts, she crawled out of the cube and just stopped, not moving. My husband, who is the holder during meds, picked her up and held her. She just started to fade and in a matter of minutes was gone. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />

I want to know why! Not that it matters, but we spent close to a thousand dollers counting buying Koumori for her, and I would have spent however much it took to save her.

Chibi was given to my Daughter by a professor who didn't have time for her <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" /> and Little Girl whom we think was her sister we got from the same pet store. Do you think their immune systems were compromised by the mass breeders who sell to pet stores? We also live at 7220 feet above sea level, could that affect their immune systems?

I couldn't take anymore loss, so we took Koumori back to her breeder, whom by the way is wonderful, so she could return to her family. We only had her about a month, and I think she will be fine. I won't be, my heart is broken.

I scoured this site for any information about diet, behavior, health,etc. There is a wealth of knowledge on this site I'm just sad I couldn't save them... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

Take peace in knowing that they knew how much you loved and cared for them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

I'm so very sorry for the loss of your baby. I know you tried your hardest and so did she. Sometimes tho they just can't fight any longer even to stay with the people they love. Know that they will be waiting for you across the bridge <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

THE RAINBOW BECKONS

In loving memory of my angels who have crossed over the rainbow bridge


The rainbow has beckoned
It’s calling you home
To meadows and forest
In which you may roam

My heart it grows heavy
To think you might leave
I’d be all alone then
Alone then to grieve

I know deep inside me
That you cannot stay
The pain that you’re feeling
Grows more night and day

You look at me asking
In your silent way
To let you go home now
“Please let me” you say

You say there’s no pain there
No fear and no hate
Just peace and well being
Once you’re through the gate

You tell me you’ll always
Hold me in your heart
That time and that distance
Can’t keep us apart

And if I should need you
At my side you’ll be
Tho I cannot see you
You’ll be there with me

You promise to wait at
the rainbow for me
To wait `til I join you
Together to be

I just want to hold you
And beg you to stay
To ask please don’t leave me
Alone on this day

Yet deep in my heart know
I must let you go
You must make the journey
now to the rainbow

I bow down my head then
The tears fill my eyes
I give you my blessing
My love now to fly

So fly to the rainbow
And wait there for me
Some day I will join you
Together to be

You've flown to the rainbow
and wait there for me
Someday I will join you
together to be
