MJ has barely touched any of the food I left him overnight, normally overnight the hay is flattened and any herbs are gone. Not today. He's nibbling s little bit of hay and ate one sprig of mint. I'm sitting in the pen with him but I need to leave for work in ten minutes.

I'll do a proper thread for her, but it will take a while. There is a lot to say

When I got home he was sitting in a ball in the corner, did not appear to have touched any of the herbs or pellets that were left for him, not sure about hay but it definitely hadn't gone down much. I managed to get him to take a sprig of mint, wouldn't take anymore. Called the vet and have collected some critical care, she asked if we wanted to bring him in. I said no, I do not think him travelling alone, even just to the vet, would help. We went out and picked him some forage, he's eating that as long as someone is sitting with him.

He still has lubricant round his eyes from the vet school. Temperance always cleaned his eyes and ears so thoroughly.


My sweetie bun is home

We've been taking turns at sitting/lying on the floor with MJ. Its so odd lying on the floor without being nose beeped by a nosey T from all angles. She always wanted to know what you were up to. MJ has eaten quite a lot of the forage that we collected (not a huge amount, a sandwich bag of dandelion / dog rose / bramble leaves / hawthorn) but nothing else and only when we sit with him. We've offered him critical care but he doesn't want it. Normally when he is getting eye drops he would squish up next to T, or at least go see her straight after. Now his eye drops have been increased and he has no one to turn to, I don't want to make things worse for him by syringe feeding him while he is at least still eating a bit. I was laying on the floor with him earlier, giving him nose rubs. He stopped me, as he always does, usually he starts grooming you back but he stood up and touched my face with his nose. I wish I could make him feel better.

I missed this yesterday, what a shock. Temperance has been around since before I first came to HH. I always loved her name and I can't quite believe she's left us.
Poor wee MJ. You are helping him ... his touching your face tells us that. You're being there is helping and your loving him.

Life and love and dreams are oft as one, and are, within Earth's circle, oft so fleeting; yet set free of Earth's restricting bounds they go on forever.

Thank you. We are shock too. I truly never believed this would be the outcome of her vet visit. I slept in the living room last night so MJ didn't have to go away in the pen. I don't think he went into the kitchen at all, I'm not sure he slept either. Every time I woke he was just sitting looking. I don't think he ate either, I syringe fed him this morning. He hated it and struggled. I feel awful having to do this to him when he has no one to comfort him. We're trying but it's not the same. I'm sitting in the pen with him and he's nibbling hay but I need to leave for work in a minute, and don't get home until after 6pm.

Sad Poor MJ. And poor you Hugs

The only thing I can think to suggest is possibly setting up a webcam so you can keep an eye on him when you're out?

I have a watchbot if you want me to send it to you?

Bless you, everything you are doing by lying on the floor with MJ and sleeping with him and coaxing him to eat and all the little special things you are doing will undoubtedly help MJ slowly recover from his grief, he won't understand like human's do and it's so upsetting we can't tell them, but MJ will
feel your loving vibes and you will all help each other to heal with time and healing loving kindness.
Thinking of you with much love Hugs Hugs Hugs

It is so sad when you have to watch an animal grieving and surely you are doing all you can and even a tat more.
It seems you are both sharing your grieving process and that is somehow good.
I want to suggest something even if it sounds silly. Could you get him a cuddle toy. Not kidding. After Bertie had gone Bubbles was quietly grieving too and one day managed to sneak into my bedroom where I keep some toys from my childhood. She pulled one of my teddys down  played a little and settled next to it-so I let her have it. After a few days she lost interest and I got my teddy back. May have been coincidence but who knows. May be worth a try.
Sending you and MJ comfort and loving vibes.Hugs

Thanks all, MJ seemed a little brighter last night. We collected him more forage and got him more fresh. He has eaten a whole packet of flat leaf parsley between last night and this morning (smaller packet from tesco), normally I wouldn't let him have that much but as he's not really eating anything else I figure its ok. He was also moving about a bit more, we even got a binky. Although he just sat afterwards. He slept in the pen last night and when I went in this morning he was stretched out on the floor instead of in a ball which is how he's spent most of the last few days.

I wonder how it is for him, it seems like its much the same for me. Sometimes you just forget and feel normal. Then suddenly you remember. Sitting on the floor and not feeling that inevitable familiar nose beep, sitting on the sofa and not having my trouser legs nibbled, hearing a noise at the kitchen door but realising MJ is already out. Looking at that spot in front of the TV, and MJ just being there himself. And the little reminders everywhere, not including the little box that now sits on the hi fi unit. Right behind where they always sat.

I had found her a new halloween hat in tesco. Its black and has a little spider net cape attached. I saw it early last week, but I thought I'd leave it until nearer the time. Now I see it everytime I'm in there and I think 'thats perfect, I should buy that'. Then remember.

It seems like its the same for him, moments of normality then he realises. And retreats back into himself. He leapt out the carrier with a buzz yesterday, ears forward. Then he just stopped, and sat in a ball. Maybe I am just transferring my own feelings... either way, he's not the same. But he's getting better.

Oh hunni, she has left a bunny shaped hole in your lives that's gonna be hard to fill. It will get easier with time though hunni.

I always think of T when I see a teeny hat, and i think I probobly always will. What smiles she brought to us all.

Thinking of you xxx

Oh darling, I always feel so sorry for animals because they cannot tell us what pain they are in, emotional or physical.  As you say it looked as if it had suddenly hit him, the same thing happens to us I think you are all in a lot of pain at the moment and I can only keep sending comforts. Hugs

Sorry I have only just seen this. I am shocked and saddened about Temperence. She will always be fondly remembered here. I hope MJ continues to adjust and that he gives you lots of comfort.

We are doing away, MJ is much better. He's eating and more active (though still pretty quiet for MJ), he's needing much more attention. We do our best but he's been a bit nippy at times (tho apologetic with it), frustration I think because nose rubs and strokes from people just aren't the same. I guess he's also missing having someone to press against, they always sat pressed against each other.

We got a lovely card from the vet yesterday, the nurses had all signed it and wrote messages and our vet wrote that he hoped MJ is doing ok. It was really nice.
