My dear Rocky is gone

Postby dawnb02 » Fri Oct 04, 2013 8:13 pm

I found him in the toilet at 1:00 am this morning. My son forgot to put the lid down. We always put the lid down, but not this 1 time. Cant stop crying. I miss him so much. I am so sorry Rocky. I love you.

I know this is extremely hard. Your son must feel terrible. Actually this is the most common death for flyer pets. It doesn't seem it now, but time will help. It's OK to cry as much as you need to now.

Thank you Shannon & Joan.
Crying has gotten better...but depression has kicked in. I just miss him so much.

Dawn, I don't know if you've seen this, it's from Judy C., but it's beautiful and I wanted to share with you:
"Some little ones come into this world under bad circumstances. Although, for whatever reason, they have no future in this world, it is not yet their time to leave it. So God places them with someone with an abundance of love, compassion, and gentleness - someone that can hold His creatures in their hands until it is time for them to pass into His. So always remember that you were chosen for this task for a reason - God knew that you were the one person that could fill this particular squirrel's needs in this world until it was time for him to go Home. You have done your job well. Mourn the briefness of his life, but rejoice in the time you had with God's wonderful creature, and the faith that God had in you when He entrusted it's short life to you."

I wanted to post some pictures of my toilet ladder. Since losing Rocky, I installed these on ALL my toilets. EVERYONE that has a flyer needs to install these. It is simple and costs less than $15.00. Hopefully this will save our babies and our hearts.

All you need is a pair of wire cutters to snip the amount you need. It bends easily and just cut a rectangle then bend it around your toilet. Super easy to make!! This one has been on for 7 months. Easy to lift off and put back on. Can be cleaned with an old toothbrush.

Bought at Home Depot around $9.00

Plenty of leftover!!
