Daisy May lost her home
and came to our sanctuary on 10/13/07. She arrived with Bunky,
Pretty Girl Gandolf, Merry & Pippin (2 geese & 2 ducks). They
were all fawned over by their prior owner, but unfortunately she
became ill and could no longer keep her flock. We adopted
four members of the flock out together, but could see that Daisy
wasn't really bonded with them. We kept her here with us at the
sanctuary and were on the verge of retiring her, and granting
her a lifelong stay.
Daisy May fell suddenly ill one Wednesday evening and died on
in our arms early the following morning on 8/21/08. Her necropsy
was performed within hours and a UCONN Pathologist confirmed
that she had died of Peritonitis resulting from ovarian cancer. It could not
have been prevented or remedied. In honor of her passing, we
officially retired her to our sanctuary. She was cremated and
has rejoined us forever.
Daisy May had a very unique call and she loved to chat, and we will always
remember her feistiness. As small as she was, Daisy May liked to be the
girl in charge. It was her way or
HER WAY! She didn't really like the act of being caught, but once in our arms,
she would settle right
in and relax for a good petting. She also hovered very close to us when we
visited her pen. She knew she was apt to get a big, juicy nightcrawler if she
stood first in line, and so she did.
She will never be forgotten...
