The Suni made it through the night and at 3am was eager to take more fluids. We all hoped he was on the way back up, that it was some minor inner ear infection that was causing his balance to be a bit off.
It turns out however that the reason behind the Suni and his unsteady feet is a combination of blindness and old age. Very old for a Suni his organs were starting to shut down – a condition exacerbated by the large number of ticks and fleas present on his little body.
It was decided that instead of prolonging his pain, we would have him put to sleep. He is now at rest at the base of a beautiful orchid covered tree where he happily lived his life.
