Hyper’s Gone

It’s been quite a crazy couple of days. We have a brand new grandson, Mrs.R and the Jack Ratticus are speaking again, and our little Hyper girl moved on to the Rainbow Bridge.

In all the excitement of Kaden’s arrival I did not want to leave Hyper’s passing as only a footnote to recent events.

Hyper was our little fighter. She passed due to complications / after effects of a pasteurella infection. Her sister Wallflower has made an apparent complete recovery. Our Sweet Pea and Missy also passed earlier from this same thing. Hyper made a valiant effort at living through the debilitation of the sickness but finally succumbed the night of December 5th, as though she waited to know Kaden’s fate, then satisfied he would be well, she made her way home to be with her family at the Rainbow Bridge.

We will miss our little Hyper girl. We will miss her rushing to the edge of her cage every time we went into the kitchen; she lived in the dining room near the end. We will miss her licks and nuzzling every time we petted her.

I found her laying on her side, slightly stretched out, in her final sleep. Finally at rest, and at peace. Until we meet again at the bridge little one, we will be missing you.
