Basil's gone

One minute, you have a cherished pet and the next, you find him dead in the corner of his cage.

Oh boy.

I wasn't altogether unprepared, given that his siblings both died within ten days of each other but this is a blow.

Ask not what your rodent can do for you...

    Thank you everybody, you're very kind.

    I really am quite cut up about this one. I hadn't had a buck since, oh... 1970-something and he was just so much fun and such a character. I'm just grateful I didn't have to intervene at the end but I wish I had detected him sooner and been there for him. Ah well, no sense borrowing trouble eh?

    Thanks again everyone.

    Sad indeed, Jon. Males are just special in their own way and I got really close to my boys. Sleep soundly Basil, we will miss you sweetie. x
