He loved Penny with all his little heart, and he knew how much she loved him. It's hard, and strange, to see her without him. I let her see his body yesterday. She sat with him, sniffing and grooming, off and on for a while. I wanted her to have a chance to say goodbye. She's doing better than I expected. She's eating normally, thank goodness. I'm giving her lots of extra attention and love.
Thanks, everyone. Penny is doing well. I think I may try to slowly introduce her to Snuggy now. They've seen each other through the baby gate many times and seemed friendly. Shadow was the jealous one who always started fights when the girls tried to "talk". He was extremely possessive of Penny. I hope the girls can bond. Snuggy hasn't had a friend since Baby passed in '07.
