Namine Final Update

Hello all,

Sorry for not posting in so long. The day after the previous post, Namine began to urinate blood. My managers were nice enough to let me rush her to the store's vet. After some testing, it was discovered that not only did Namine have an advanced internal infection, but diabetes as well. She was also malnourished and the mites were causing her immune system to have more trouble fighting the infection.  I decided that her quality of life would have been less than stellar, and with a heavy heart I made the decision to put her to sleep.

It has been several weeks and I still think of her often. I had only known her for a few days, but she left a huge impact on my heart. Send her your prayers and think of her fondly. She was a very sweet little hedgehog and is missed greatly.
