Oh god, so sorry to read this, poor Jemimah, I’m so sorry @Merab's Slave. Hope you’ve got lots more pain free time together and you won’t have to think of that day for a long time. Hugs from me and the piggles x

Jemimah seems to be taking longer naps now but she’s still a happy girl and she still wheeks if she thinks it will get her veggies.
She loves Oxbow Critical Care with a bit of banana mashed into it so I like to give her a bit most days.
The others also like it and love to help when I put little dishes in the cage

Thanks @Bill & Ted
At the moment she’s happy enough in herself and behaving normally
She still wheeks for veggies and purrs happily when she gets her favourites.
She’s sleeping more but still gets around the cage.
She is still losing weight but I’m only checking every few days - I don’t want to stress her out.

How many piggies can you fit in a box of hay?

AB722287-641D-4791-AB0D-C22A1D675979.jpeg

Hiding while the cage was being cleaned.
All piggies weighed and checked over.

How Priscilla managed to get such a knot of fur on her tummy I will never know - but we had fun as I tried to explain the concept of lying still on her back so I could cut it off.
Managed to removed the dried lump of recovery food from Micah’s nose.

Jemimah is holding her weight steady which is good.
I think I know where all her lost weight has gone - Micah.
He weighed in at a whopping 1430g today.

I think the conversation was going something like this:
Priscilla; If you’re not feeling well Jemimah shall I do the veggie ‘wheek’ today?
Jemimah; Well ok, if you want to try it, go ahead.
Priscilla; Wheek! Wheek!
Jemimah; No Priscilla, that’s not how you do it. First you have to stand straight, take a deep breath and then wheek with everything you’ve got. Like this - WHEEK!

All piggies weighed and checked today - nail trimming will have to be done soon.
Micah, Priscilla and Phoebe are all much the same weight which pleases me as there have been a few extra calories in the food because of Jemimah.
Jemimah now weighs just over 1kg and when I hold her I can feel the mass in her abdomen now.
She’s still eating well and happy in herself so hoping this will continue and that she will simply not wake up one day not having suffered at all.

I’m pleased that Jemimah is oblivious to what is going on, and she is still happy in herself. Long may it last.
