Subject: Re: Rusty

Rusty and his 5 other friends came to us when their mom was in and
out of the hospital. I think she had a vet say Rusty had a bad heart.
I think that is what is giving out now. This morning he has trouble
breathing and can't move to go potty. He goes right where he is at.
He won't take water or food no licking at all. Tried ferretone no
luck. I think he is ready for the bridge. He is going that fast.
I think the hair loss was from stress. He wasn't getting food and
water on time, no time out of the cage. Plus in order for his mom to
breath she kept a heavy blanket over their cage and her apt was very
small and HOT. His litter box was kept up and they stunk so bad. He
did make great improvements when he came here. We were all very
surprised.I will call the vet today, but I don't think he will go in
his cage after that.
