Received the most awful piece of news about a week ago and now the worst has happened. :(
Last week, Basil was hit in the eye by a flying stone in a freak accident, while his mum and dad were away.
He went to the vet several times; the injury was very serious but there was a possibility it would get better. And it seemed to do so for a while. And then it got worse. And then, yesterday, he had to have his eye taken out!
I mean totally removed!
Poor Basil! It makes me cry thinking about him having to go through all that trauma, and then now having to be sightless in one eye forever. :( :( :(
I can’t wait to go back to England to see him. I’m going to baby the hell out of him.
Here’s my favourite photo of Basil.
Okay, I can’t talk about it anymore. Can’t stop crying when I’m talking about it!
