Charlie & Piper

“Charlie & Piper”

My Charlie had another bladder flush for a calcium sludge buildup last week, and he takes it really personally. Just like last time it took him many days to recover. He was in stasis after we got him home and had a real tough time keeping his temperature up for a couple of days. That’s finally stable now, and he’s eating most things, but only wants a little bit of pellets. He might be getting lazy and preferring the syringe-fed Critical Care food, so we’re decreasing that. He has always been a very fussy eater but he’s a tough little guy.

His mate Piper has been such a good girl while Charlie has been sick. I had to separate them for a few days so I could leave food down for him that she wouldn’t eat. She never bothered us when we were medicating Charlie and didn’t seem to mind being closed out of my room. I was a little worried they might become unbonded, but I let them visit for a few hours on Sunday and they were fine. They’re together all day again now, except for a few hours when I close him in my room to get him to eat some pellets.
