my precious little tortellini died yesterday.
i'm not sure why. i just went to say hello and she didn't respond.
she hasn't been eating well lately. to remedy this, i've been putting her outside on the weekends, letting her eat wild-growing weeds and enjoy the sunshine. ed and i had plans to build nicer indoor and outdoor pens. he was set to start this weekend, actually. i was going to plant a little weed garden for her. i've been in contact with a breeder to get her a little buddy.
yes, she was a little hockey puck, and far from the most exciting pet, but she was adorable and i loved her. i remember when i was carting her to and from work every day, i could look in the back seat and she'd be trudging around, looking for strawberries.
see those precious little eyes? pinpricks for nostrils? scaly little fat legs with cute little claws? precious little pink tongue? (well, you can't see all that, but trust me - she had 'em.)
rest in peace, little baby. i'm truly going to miss you.
