Hello everyone following Venus' story, this is not an update i wanted to post but you all deserve to know what happened [TRIGGER WARNING!!
to get my emotions out cause this happened an hour ago i will be very in detail]. this evening i went outside to Venus being swarmed by flies in her cage (i had moved her into an old small cage so she could easily get around even with her paralyzed leg. i decided to put her in her run (her favorite place) while i cleaned out her cage so the flies wouldn't bother her. when i picked her up i realized that her both her back legs and tail were now floppy and uncontrolled. i got really scared cause the paralysis seemed to be spreading, once i put her down i noticed she had to drag herself with her front paws to move but i laid her in the grass and had my brother come fan her to keep the flies away. i finished cleaning the cage so me, my brother, and my mom all went to check on her and she was (IT GETS TRIGGER-Y HERE
) convulsing. not extremely but weird movements trying to fight the paralysis. i could tell from that moment it was over. we all sat next to her offering her dandelions, water, and pets. she whimpered a little bit but we talked to her and stroked her and she passed peacefully with kisses and kind words. i didn't cry in front of her to not panic her but the moment she passed i started sobbing. we buried her and planted some irises and some grass from her favorite spot in her run on top of her grave. i will miss you Venus R.I.P
