So sad

17 posts in this topic

I'm sorry to report that after a 10-day trip, I came home to my 6.5 year old fantail, Duchess, dead. She had been feeling well before I left, and her fish-sitter (trustworthy) said she was swimming well on Friday. I am just wrecked. I didn't get to say goodbye, and she was separated from her tankmate and had been fasting since Thursday in my absence. 

 

Good bye, Duchess. I don't even know what to say. I just feel wrecked and sick to my stomach. I tried writing about it on my blog but I thought I'd note it here since so many people had helped me over the past year. Thank you all.

I'm sorry she passed! Given her random deterioration and weakness that wasn't really responding much to treatment so much as just getting better with rest, I'd honestly guess she was just old - 6.5 years is very respectable and you took excellent care of her! But just like an elderly dog or human they get more fragile and sick more easily, and some just pass from natural causes.

Hugs to you as you grieve her loss, it's never easy to lose a beloved pet. RIP Duchess :(
