After his late-night feed Furzy sprawled out on the floor of his pen and was not looking good. I was not happy, but there was no more I could do.
Feeding a little and often paid off though, as this morning I found him hanging upside down on his heat pad and he seemed to be a much perkier little chap.
Even though I knew Furzy wasn’t 100%, as always, one hopes that your little rescue will pull through. He was gaining weight, and as seen in this clip Perky Furzy he looked 100% better and was definitely more active.
We both did our best, but sadly Furzy just couldn’t fully recover from his ordeal. This can happen with any wild animal rescue. If they have been left, especially in cold weather, and are very weak and sick when rescued, their internal organs and bodily functions have probably already and irreversibly started to close down. Sadly little Furzy passed away during the night. My only consolation is that at least he was warm, had enjoyed a couple of meals, and was being loved and cared for at the end.
