Quincy died this evening. Yesterday night my Hubby found him in his cage half alive covered in vomit and fecal matter. Unable to hold his head up, or control his body. The only thing he could do was cry, really loud. I panicked and called my breeder and told me to get lots of fluids in him.
All the Vet places were closed at the time and the ER Vet is hours away. So I got fluids and food in him. Stayed up with him for hours, and letting him sleep on a heating pad.
Slowly he started to get better, almost walking again. Then down hill again. Every moment he was awake he would have painful violent seizures. One right after another, he never got a break. Even force feeding him would end up in a seizure. The only break he got way sleeping, and if he wasn't sleeping or having a seizure he would be crawling around crying and screaming.
We think that his soft spot was hit, by who or what or when. Is something we don't know. But every time you touched his molera he would scream in pain. His brain was causing his pain. So this Halloween evening he died.
He is playing on rainbow bridge now, and he doesn't hurt anymore. He is the most prettiest angel in heaven right now. HE is truly missed, even through he was here for a short time. He filled our life with such light and laughter.
Our cat Pocky had taken him under her wing and called him her baby. She was caught constantly cleaning and cuddling him. Plus JayJay lost his bestfriend, they would chase each other thru the whole house. Climbing the Vacuum for fun. Now JayJay wont stop looking for him.
This is the worst halloween of my life....Qui-Gon Jinn (Quincy) 8/12/09-10/31/09
