Christmas Day – Bertie

Dec 25, 2022 | Family, Wildlife

Bertie is still with us, but only just. He’s been refusing liquids all day and was not at all good with his last feed late last night. So much so, I didn’t expect him to be with us this a.m and was pleased and surprised to see his ears twitch slightly as I opened his faunarium. He was still refusing to accept liquids but I kept managing to get just the tiniest drop of liquid into him. I’d let him rest and then try again later. On the fifth attempt today, he suddenly had a little twinkle in his eye which was lovely to see, even though I still couldn’t tempt him with a tasty drink. Then at 18.00 hrs, he finally accepted a drink and later two tiny mouthfuls of food. A small step in the right direction, but I think we still have a way to go. I am just hoping we can overcome it together. Bless him.
