My beautiful boy, Impala died on Monday night.  We had no idea he was so ill, apart from weight loss, until Monday morning.  By midnight he was gone.  The vet said he had a severe blood infection.  He'd had a bit of a problem with worms, which we'd been treating him for, but she said she thought that was a side issue and this would have happened anyway.

It's taken me all week to get my head around this - I'm quite devastated.  He was such a sweet, gentle-natured boy who loved the carrot treats I took him each day.  If I was late, he'd be waiting by the gate for me.

Sleep tight Impala.


  1. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. Those critters take a piece of your heart with them when they go.

  2. Yes they do. I just feel kind of empty at the moment.
