It was so sudden. Yesterday, I (this is being posted really late, so pretend that it is really 10/15/2011 okay?) noticed that he was not eating.
A few days ago, I had to separate Poe and him to different cages. Poe is really ill right now, so I thought it would be best to separate them. Poe is not contagious so that is not what killed Einstein.
So, I noticed yesterday (10/14/2011) that Einstein had not touched his food or water or fresh stuff. I didn't think anything of it, because they had just been separated. I thought he was just depressed and lonely but over time he would be able to get past it.
Sadly, he was ill. I don't know with what, seeing as how sudden this was. My Mom and I are bird sitting for my Aunt, so I brought Einstein downstairs with us. He could not hold his head up, he refused to eat anything and started to mess himself. Thankfully, he did not pass alone. My Mom was holding him and I was petting him.
This has shocked me to no end. I felt that Poe would pass in the next few weeks, but I was wrong. Poe is doing good (even with the illness) and Einstein has passed.
Rest In Peace my lovely piggie. I am sorry for the abuse you had to have before coming to me. I'm sorry for what your first owners did to you, I am happy that you were able to die with someone who loves you. With all the hay and food and treats you can eat. I love you, I always will and you will always be in my heart.
It has also been just Five months now for Sugar. :'(
