Rest in Peace Hoggle Kelsey-Hansen

Our baby Hoggle passed away this afternoon on our way back from picking him up at the vet. They thought he was going to get better, but he seemed so weak when we picked him up this morning that I felt it was coming to come soon but never did I think it would be on the way home. Thank you to everyone who had met him and loved him, or just loved him without having ever met him. He was loved by many. I am going to be doing a sale on rhymeswithtwee.etsy.com because I have about one thousand assorted postcards with his little face on them. Proceeds will go towards the vet bills and cremation bill. I miss our little man so much. Right now Zachary is putting his cage and stuff out of sight and putting Hermione's cage there. I know you're not supposed to ever say anything like this, but he was my favorite. Though each and every morning I would always say to both hedgies "I love you and I'll always love you", I really felt like he knew it.

I know I've said it already elsewhere but I wanted to say again how sorry I am. I know what you're going through and how painful and difficult it is. I totally understand wanting his cage out of sight. I made Benjamin put all of Leroy's stuff in the storage room as soon as we got home from the hospital last year. And I know what you mean about having favorites. It's okay.

You were a wonderful mom to him and did everything you could.

I'm really sorry Leigh. I wish I could have met him, I'm sure he was a perfect little man. Now I want to meet Hermione even more!

But, really, my thoughts are with you and Zach.

I'm sorry, Leigh. Hoggle was a real sweetheart - I'll miss his snuffly nose and I'll treasure my Hoggle postcard. You were both wonderful parents to him.
