Default Goodbye little Saba

I had the privilege of meeting Saba when I picked her up from her owner to deliver her to the breeders at Volcano View Hedgehogs so they could care for her.

Saba was the result of a surprise litter, and the only one to survive after the mama hedgie rejected them. The owner had been hand-raising her for almost 2 weeks when VVH heard about her and arranged to take her in. I got to pick her up and take her to them to see if one of their females would foster her.

At 2 weeks old she weighed only 13.4g. But she was so feisty and strong (almost as squirmy as Pig) that I thought she would make it for sure.

The foster mom took her right away, but she just didn't nurse enough, although she still appeared to have an appetite. The breeders were wonderful - they supplemented her with formula round the clock and loved and cared for her, but she passed away a couple hours ago at 3 weeks old. She was surprisingly feisty until the end.

It was an honor to have met you, sweet girl. You fought so hard for every second of your life. But you can rest now, tiny one, and be at peace.

You were so loved and you will never be forgotten.

I just found her toy that her original owner gave me... Pig was cuddled up with it under the couch. He really seems to like it but I don't think I can keep it around.

Abby, I am so sorry for the loss of little Saba. Such a beautiful girl. Perhaps your Piglet is receiving some energy from Saba's toy.
