How is Simon doing? I was thinking about him and you all morning.
I was just about to make a post about him. Simon is still hanging in there, unfortunately. :( I was really hoping he’d pass away quickly. He still doesn’t seem uncomfortable, so I’m very grateful for that. I’m halfway considering syringing some water or Ensure into him right now, because I know he’s dehydrated, but I don’t really want to disturb him because he is sleeping very peacefully in his house.
I feel weird going up to the cage hoping to find him dead, but he’s three years old & has a huge tumor on his face, there’s not really a good alternative other than a peaceful death. I’m so glad that he seems comfortable, because my other natural death was a seven hour ordeal that was incredibly traumatizing…he had seizures & strokes all night & it was awful. If Simon’s still alive by Monday afternoon when I get out of class, I’ll probably go ahead & take him in to the vet to be euthanized so he doesn’t end up starving to death.
