Turns out he had a mass in his abdomen and a lot of fluid around it. He struggled to breathe because there was no room for his little lungs. He passed in my hands and we buried him in the backyard. I’m sick and sad and empty and lost. I loved that little bird to the end.

Thank you all very much. This has been a very hard day. I kept wanting him to “wake up” when I was holding him.
That's how I felt after I lost my Nala :( I just kept staring at her like if I just waited long enough she'd wake up and I could snuggle with her again and everything would be normal. It was almost an hour before I would let the doctor take her away :(. You're in my thoughts I know this pain all too well and wouldn't wish it on anyone.
