About a year ago, Tico became ill. He had a swelling in his face and he had nosebleeds. Our 2-foot with no fur on the top of his head helped Aged Auntie Gladys to take Tico to the vet, who said that he couldn't cure Tico, and that he would probably leave Lagamorphia before Chris-Moose, but Tico loved Aged Auntie Gladys, and he knew how much she loved him, so he decided to stick around for as long as he could.
Tico did his best, but in the last few weeks he realised that he had to begin to accept that no matter how hard he tried, he couldn't stay with Aged Auntie Gladys forever, so today, Tico said goodbye. Aged Auntie Gladys is very sad now, and because she is so old, she says that it wouldn't be fair to let another animal adopt her as she is no longer strong enough to be a good slave. I think that when she feels a bit better, we might invite her to stay with us for a couple of days so that we can cheer her up, and besides... She ALWAYS brings us a present!!!
