I have such unhappy news to share with you again, dear readers…our little trooper Badger, who rallied so bravely after becoming seriously ill a few weeks before Christmas, has finally lost his battle with cancer.
He required constant nursing all these past months…which was exactly what my husband and I needed to help us recover from Griffin’s passing back in December, and then the unexpected loss of Flora only a week later.
I’m such a firm believer that everything in this world of ours happens for a reason, even if that reason is difficult to fathom at the time. Badger stayed with us just long enough for our grief over losing his brother and sister to mellow into sweet memories…and to allow our rescue ferret Wolfie to find his way to us, so we wouldn’t be without a fur-baby to love.
Thank you, darling Badger, for all the joy you brought us with your funny antics these last seven years. We miss you with all our hearts.
