Monty's last days and Christmas

I love Switch's chunkiness

We did the other cages too, but only Bertie and Maddi's was light enough to get piccies of

The other boys are all ok (and girl of course). Forz and Switch were a bit subdued last night but they've perked up again today. Ishy and Mawie are doing well in the shed, it doesn't seem to bother them much being outside, except it's much smaller and darker than Laura's so it's a bit annoying trying to spend time with them out there. After christmas is over there'll be a ratty couch free in the house to free range them on so that's ok Smile How are all your guys?

Thanks Katnerine for sharing your photos of Monty during his last days. He must have found it hard leaving you as you did likewise when he passed away. Our pets really never leave us, they are forever in our memories. Glad to hear that the others are beginnig to settle down. I'm sure they will enjoy the run around in the new year. Happy New Year.

Thanks Steve and Laura. He was very special, looking at him in these now he's gone is a bit of shock after going through older pics of him for his obit, but his loving bounce-back spirit never left him, which was why I had a hope he would get better even when I suspected the vet would recommend pts. I will miss him hugely, but as you say Laura, he enjoyed the company of his new friends - you would never know they hadn't always lived together! They were so sweet to him. I'm endlessly grateful to you for letting us have them, they made sure Monty had real quality of life in his last months Love

As I said before I left I'm very happy to have them, but if you're still in the UK and would like them back then that is fine, just let me know.

I'm back in Ireland now Katherine Smile don't worry about it, was chatting to Karl last night, and you can hang onto them for now anyway, and we'll see what the story is when you're next in Ireland. If they are better off not traveling (they're not getting younger), then you can keep onto them, and if you think they're OK to travel and you'd rather we had them back, then we will of course! Smile

Haha Grace, how could I say no to Noodles, I also have a pressie for you under the debris of my flat to bring over Embarrassed

Laura, I certainly am more than happy to hang onto them but at the same time a wee bit guilty cos I know how much you must miss them. Basically the offer is there that you just need to say the word and I'll bring them back, so please, if you'd rather don't hesitate to ask - that sounds awful like I want shot of them, I promise the opposite is true Wink Just, as I say, I feel very guilty. I am conscious of them aging and just being 2 now. Would it be better to try and integrate them with my older boys, bearing in mind that Mawie is quite bristly when he smells another buck, I know I'm sort of on your list for babies at some point, but are they too old for that now?
