Monkey's breathing was loud and labored. There was a crusting yellow discharge from his nose and a foul green liquid coming from his mouth. None of this had been present that morning. He couldn't stand. He couldn't really swallow. At the emergency vet, his temp. was only 86 degrees, and his belly was extremelly painful to touch.
Given how far gone Monkey already was I wasn't about to put the poor little handsome man through full bore diagnostics and surgery. So, we had him put to sleep.
I am Koda THE Bear, and I don't have time to tell any story tonight, either. The fact that I am most likely a Rex instead of a Teddy was CLASSIFIED information. Pigjes blew my cover by posting so many comparison photos of Plucky, Bubbly, and Piep. Now, mum is going to go around telling people that I am Rex. Time for information control. (I am still THE Bear.)
I like playing in the hay. It is fun! I get to tell story tonight. Back in October, my human mum brought my piggymom, Harley, and my big sister, Powder Puff, home for foster care. See, this is Powderpuff. She looks like me!
I never really got to meet my big sister because me and my brothers were still inside Mama Harley's belly. Then on November 5th, we came out!
My three brothers all had something called Serious Birth Defects. They all died when they were barely three weeks old. That made everybody sad, especially my human mumma.
A few weeks ago, mumma brought Mama Harley back to the shelter so that she could be adopted out. Right after that, mumma went to a store to get food for us. She came home with food and....another guinea pig. Mumma was mad because someone had abandoned a guinea pig at the food store in a really tiny dirty cage. Mumma is going to foster this new girl pig for a rescue until someone wants to adopt her. Her name is Celia.
You know what the best part of my story is? December 19th, after talking with dad, mum went back to the shelter to sign some papers and make it OFFICIAL that they were ADOPTING me!! I get to stay here! I'm cute!!
