He was one year 7 months old, He had something wrong with his chest/neck area maybe a tumor in his throat (his mum died of a tumor on her face). He couldn't bend his neck forward and down and he was sicking up his food, so I had to grind his food to a powder and hold him even whilst he had a drink.

He used to run up to 4 miles a night in his wheel but A few weeks ago I noticed he was going really slow and he was sad, yesterday he started squeeking when he moved. The vet agreed he was in a bad way when he saw him try to walk but didn't want to try to look down his throat as he would have hurt him.

Bandit was a gorgeous little man, hedgepiggies always remind me of 'tough-looking' guinea pigs :lol:

You're in my thoughts m'dear...

~ Run free little Bandit, no more need for your wheel cos you've got miles and miles of lush green fields to scamper through, take all our love and share it with all the other hedgepiggies who didn't know love and kindness ~

AWWWW thanks everyone for you kind words it means so much to me :wink: , I know this topic ment to be for the bunnies but I get more :evil: comments about loving a Hedgie than I do for the other pets and I just wanted you all to see his cute little face.

My mum and dad came straight round and collected him from me after he was pts and have burried him in a lovely spot with the BIGGEST CONCRETE plant pot on top you've ever seen so no way are any foxes or cats getting him. I couldn't have burried him here as my sons would have been freaked out by it :?
