Farewell, Pipin :(

Posted: December 29, 2011 in The Little Critters

Papai & Pipin were to squirrel babies when i found them.

First, Papai left us.

Now, it’s Pipin.

I lost both of them without any sign 😦

Farewell, my little squirrel.

Binky free to Rainbow Bridge, little one. Hope u already find a true happiness there..

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…. “ – Author unknown.

Mocha Has A Dental Issue

Posted: December 18, 2011 in Inside The Playpen

I was busy lately. I couldn’t even find time to update my blog!

Recently, I’ve been working on a few things. I didn’t realized i have failed to spend times with The Fluffies and failed to make the weekly routine until i found this.

This is Mocha’s incisors today. He has a difficulties to pick up raisin from my hand.

Mocha : Front profile

One of the peg teeth has misaligned. The lower incisor worn out.

Mocha : Side Profile

Healthy teeth should have clear color. But as u see from the side photo, the upper incisors start to turn white in color (click photo for bigger view).

He lost the lower incisor in Feb 2011.
This was how the the incisors looked like previously. No white patch on the teeth.

Mocha's missing incisor

And this is Mickybell’s (Mocha’s littermate) incisors.

Mickybell : Side profile

Mickybell’s upper incisors look longer than them supposed to be, but they’re still aligned.

Alfie lost his lower incisor too, the same week Mocha lost his (Feb 2011). We sent Alfie for teeth burring. 2 weeks later, the upper incisors grew back to their original length. But until today, the length remain the same. So i’m not really worry about him compared to Mocha.

Will send Mocha to the same vet who perform teeth burring to Alfie.

Now i have to monitor these 3 Fluffies VERY closely.
