Thumbillina has been with us for a little over a year. She didn't originally belong to us, and she had a rough life before I took her as my own. However, her and I both have strong will. Her's is to survive and mine is to keep her alive.
At Christmas-time she had a trip the vet due to not eating and not being active at all. She fooled us though, while at the vet she lept off the examine table and got under their storage cupboards, the base board had to be removed for us to get her out. She must have been storing a bit energy somewhere.
The Doctor gave her injections of Calcium and Vitamin D. The Vet recommended a diet of baby food for added nutrients. We tried lots of variations, but she favors bananas and mixed cereal with applesauce.
She has improved greatly since December. She has grown some, and gotten her attitude back.
These pictures are from Christmas Day. The second one was not staged, Thumbillina and Ocula were sitting next to each other having their pictures taken when Thumbillina decided to give Ocula a hug.
