Go Gertie, go!!!!
While the ravages of old age have robbed dear Gertie of her teeth, they have failed to take away her will to live. This morning we learn from the Vet Practice in Whittlesea that dear Gertie has made it through the night. Still hanging in there and even tucking into more of the special goat mix we have made for her, she too is looking much brighter than the forlorn gal battling fly-strike we rescued less than 24 hours ago.
Sadly, we have learned that the sight of her left eye has been compromised by the injury and we are still to coming to terms with the full extent of the damage caused by the combined effects of the attack, subsequent infections and fly-strike. We take great comfort in knowing everything that is humanly possible is being done for Gertie, and indeed she is one tough nanny goat.
We love you Bertie (and Gertie)
While Bertie is slowly conceding we may well be the good guys, after all we come bearing treats and kindness, Gertie remains in intensive care at the vets. Although Bertie appears lost. His world turned upside down and his companion no longer here. We will never forget his chivalrous return to the spot from which we took Gertie into the kindness van. Full of fear, yet full of love. Our greatest hope now is that Gertie will be strong enough to return home to her beloved.
