Good morning everyone. It is a Thursday morning. And not raining at the moment. I want to start with the bad news. I have lost one of my loved little four legged guys. And I must say I am very sad this morning. As I did’nt even see this coming.
Mr. Cuddles was in the barn last night standing away from the rest of the herd when I went to feed and do chores. After I finished with everyone else. I went and picked him up. Carried him to the car and brought him home. Now he really did not have a cold to speak of. And he did not seem sick. But he just was not acting right. So I dedided to put him in with Tanto under a heat lamp.
You see, I have had a few. Not many. Just Skittles and Tanto and some of the little guys at the house have been fighting a cold. So Skittles is doing better and did not really need to be under the heat lamp. But Tanto, well I wanted him in one more night. So I decided to put Mr. Cuddles in with him. They could keep each other company. And I could check on Cuddles thru the night to make sure he was doing O.K.. And, that is what I did. The last time I looked at him was 1:30 this morning. And he seemed fine. He had not had any water since I put him in there but I was not real worried about that. It was there if he wanted it. So, when I went out about 6:45 a.m. he was gone. So sad.
He will be greatly missed. As he was one that liked people very much. His little spotted ears made him very uneak. And yes his name fit him well. As he loved to be held and cuddled. I will miss holding him in my lap. With his head laying over my shoulder or when he would kiss me. Yes kiss me. These guys are all very friendly. Some more then others. And he was one of them.
Memory, he got a bad cold last year. And was really sick. So he lived in my bathroom for about 5 days. And he loved it. Well while he was sick he never would get up. And why should he. I changed his bedding everyday and brought hime his food and water. The life of Royaltiy. One afternoon, I went down to the barn. I was not going to be gone very long. So I left the bathroom door open. You see Cuddles had not been getting up. So I was not to worried. Well, when I opened the front door. Guess who was there to meet me. You guessed it. Mr Cuddles. He had also been all over the house while I was out. And he had left a trail to prove that. Thank goodness goats have little round pellets. They are easy to sweep up. But he was so proud of his self. And happy to see me. But not so happy when I let him know that it was time to go out to the pen outside now. I was not happy then. But what I would give for him to do that all over agian. He will be missed very, very much. So this post is for him.
