to everyone who helped me wih advice for Basil my PEW, he had URI and was very ill, thought he had a heart condition to as it took ages for him to get better! and apart from a little bit of bumble foot, which I'm trying to get rid of, he is looking really amazing!

He went from this- When I was watching him 24/7 cos I thought he was going to die!



to this



he is still all skin and bones but has really started eating well now, so fingers crossed he is through the worsed! xx

Aaw, bless Basil, how lovely to see him munching on his greens now! (the picture of him wrapped in his towel must bring it home to you how poorly he was) Glad to hear he's made a recovery now though, wishing him all the very best - take care Basil you beauty! :)

I prepared myself for him going to the rainbow bridge! I litrally sat up with him for 4 days straight, just cuddling him and keeping him warm and feeling safe so if he did go to the rainbow bridge he would of gone in my arms!
