Timmy is now a real angel.... - 09/10/15 12:20 PM
Many of you may remember Timmy, he was my first glider. His thread is the most ever viewed, it is on the portal page. He just turned 10 yo on Sept. 1. Last night, at 8 pm as I held him, he took his final breaths. I knew it was coming. About a couple weeks ago, I noticed his belly looking bigger. He continued to eat and play as he always did. Timmy had been through so much in his life, and I made the choice at his age to not go to the vets (I am sure some may have issue with that, but please he was my glider and I had to do what was best for him. He did not do well at the vets.) Anyway Tuesday I knew his time was coming. He was still eating and such, but saw it in his eyes, that light was dimming. Yesterday morning, he still sat in my hand and ate his mealies and a piece of avocado. Last night when I went to feed him, I called his name. He always would pop up but not last night. I took him out and saw he was leaving. I finished feeding everyone and than took him out and held him. He was gone in less then 10 minutes...I believe he waited for me. He is reunited with his beloved Gidget now....my heart is broken without him. Sleep softly in the arms of the angels sweet Timmerman...chase crickets and butterflies until we meet again...I love you.
