I'm so sorry. I really am. If you are sure he's dead, :(, then may he rest in peace. :tort: You really gave him a lovely home to live in. I'm sure he had the best of care with you.

I'm so sorry. These things happen to the best of us, it wasn't your fault. My thoughts are with you. You took good care of him and I'm positive he enjoyed his time in your care. I'm really so sorry...

Does he respond to the foot tickle test?
Keep him as warm - maybe up his temps a little

Nope. No response what so ever :(
I have soaked him but no response at all to anything. His eyes look a bit sunken, too. I will truly miss the little one. I wonder if he was ill before I got him as he was always a little odd. It's not fair, he was so little :(

So sorry. It is so hard to lose a little one. Try not to beat yourself up over it. You were using the right kind of water dish. It is not your fault. Bad things just happen sometimes.

Am terribly sorry about this sad story. :( My thoughts are with you Spud, and once again: if you need to talk I can assure you I am ALL listening ears.

You did all you could, so please please try to calm down, though I for one know that words are easy.

He is very puffy today and smells eggy. Rip beautiful. Thank you all got the help :(
My boyfriend and I are very sad you lost the little one :(. He touched my heart although wasn't mine and I cried. I'm an emotional person. Your thread and pictures brought joy in our lives and I loved following it. I'm sure your life was full of joy when you had him. You were the best moma ever and these things happen. Don't beat yourself! When I was your age I could only dream being that responsible. Something just wasn't right with him, he was probably ill.

I am very very sorry to hear that the little guy didn't make it.

It was nothing you did wrong...odds are he wasn't quite healthy from the get go.

*hugs*
