    Unhappy Now my Momo is gone

    I posted not long ago about all the issues I was having with my Momo, and then a recent surgery he had to remove a kidney stone.

    Well sadly I woke up on Saturday morning to the lifeless body of my Momo in the middle of his cage , I was so devastated. The vet did a necropsy on him and he told me that he's almost sure that he died of kidney failure. He said Momo's kidney's looked dried and shrivled, and all the bloating was not from backed up food, but from fluids. Although the fluid didn't get into his lungs, I'm thinking the kidneys just weren't not functioning anymore to process those fluids. He said in a human when you have a surgery like that you'd have something like catheters and such inserted to keep your kidneys working properly, but sadly with these little ones that just not feasible, so all we can do is hope that surgery works.

    I'm still so sad to have lost my Momo, everyday I can still swear I hear a very faint wheeking coming from his cage begging for food or I still expect him to come running out of his pigloo when I open the treats drawer to give to the rabbits =( *sigh*

    So now both my piggies are gone, and I'm left with my 2 rabbits, which I love dearly as well so all I can hope for is that they remain with us for many years to come. I honestly don't know that I can bear the pain of losing piggies again. After Momo passed I threw out the old coroplast, I took apart the cage, I put everything away, for the moment I will only focus on my 2 buns.

    Thanks again everyone, I suppose at least now I have some closure.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure he's now frollicking in the grassy meadows of piggy heaven, like all deserving pigs do.

    Poor baby Momo! He wanted to live, and he tried, but it just wasn't meant to be. I hope someday you will be able to think of him without the pain.

    Poor Momo. He is now in the happy land of romaine gardens, though.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I still expect to see Chloe come running out of her pigloo too. It's so hard to lose a pet. My thoughts are with you!

    Unhappy Re: Now my Momo is gone

    Just think:
    when you go outside at night, and look up at the sky; you can see a big meadow full of piggies. They have the moon for a light and the stars are crazy cool décor! Momo's up there with all his piggy friends frollicking and dancing to the funky cavy beats. He's having the time of his life up there with his 'crew'.

    My condolences

    Re: Now my Momo is gone

    Rest in peace, sweet Momo. Don't be afraid to take a moment to just sit back and remember. Momo is happy now. The Momo you saw that morning wasn't the Momo you knew. I remember holding the body of lifeless Peachy. However I didn't feel sad because I knew that the body wasn't Peachy, not the Peachy who made me laugh every day. It was just his cage, and his true self had been released and was free. Peachy and Momo never died, and we will see them again.
