My Spritez has passed over the rainbow bridge today. She was still breathing in the morning but when I came home, she was gone. We have braced ourselves for this coming since we saw the lump. However, little Spritez as bubbly as ever, showed no signs of giving up and happily continued her daily routine. Saturday, we took her xmas photoshoot and she was still actively running around and munching her treats. But yesterday night I found her lying quietly in one corner of her cage, refusing to come for her dinner she usually pounced on. I gave her the favourite pats and rubs, this time round she shunned away and moved into an inner corner and never came out. This morning she peered out to me when I looked at her and went back to sleep. She never woke up again.
Here are the christmas shots she gave us, the last of her appearance. RIP my intelligent hammie. :(
