Goodbye Coco

Sunday morning, I woke up and found my li'l hedgehog, Coco super sick. Well, honestly, I thought at first she was dead. I started crying & woke up hubby. Then, found out she's still alive. Barely. It's heartbreaking to see my cute baby suffer like that.

She's a rescue, so I really don't know how old she was when I got her. And I have her for almost 2 years now. Pretty much the whole Sunday morning, I nursed her, trying to make her comfortable, hoping she'd make it. She even made this soft whine sound that I never heard before. All I could do was stroking her face gently & be there for her. At the end, it was her time and hubby buried her on our backyard, and we plan on making a small flower bed for her.

We lost the smallest member of our household. I'll miss you my li'l Coco-ball.




Afterwards, I kind of feeling blah the rest of the day. I guess the down fall of having a pet is when you have to say goodbye. But, the joy they bring you ... priceless.

Anyway, on a brighter note, I do have a card to share that I made on Saturday. Here's my card inspired by Rae Barthel challenge.



I kind of at lost for words now. Don't know what to write. I guess, that's it for today. I'll be back tomorrow with new project from Digital Doodles. Hope you all have a great start to your week! Thank you for swinging by here.

Vera aku jadi ikutan nangis, inget hamster2ku yg mati satu persatu. Aku ngerasa salah sama mereka, karena aku ga ngurusin mereka disaat2 terakhir mereka. Hiks..

Your card is beautiful ^^

I'm so sad to hear about Coco! What a sweet little baby! Audrey Pettit...on the DD team had a hedgehog? Sonic was his name and he died last December. She adored him sooooooo much! I loved him a ton too...he was just the sweetest thing!

Your winter card is so pretty!

Audrey Pettit said...

Oh, Vera! I am SO, SO sorry! I know just what it's like to have a sweet little hedgehog in your life and then lose them. Sonic was my best buddy, my little pal. I would sit with him in my lap every day. I only had him for a bit over 2 years, too, and he was often sick. I still miss him SO badly. He looked just exactly like your Coco.
Sending you huge hugs, my friend. ((((hugs))))

Oh Vera, Im so very sorry to hear of Coco's passing. It breaks my heart that you lost your little one. I wish I could be there to give you this *HUG*. Its so hard when you lose someone you love so much. You are right that although the loss hurts, the joy that they bring is more than worth the pain you feel right now.

Perhaps when the time is right for you, you might get another...they are so cute!

Keeping you in my thoughts,
~Andrea
