Aki Feb. 2007 to March 14, 2009

Aki is the little Russian blue berk I got from the TAS with her sister Lani who sadly passed Aug. 29 2008 from PT. This shelter was notorious for having rats pts for things like mites, etc…so when I saw the girls I ran to get them just in case. Aki spent most of her time biting and not trusting me. After her sister left us she changed her mind and her nips became licks. She was a lovely girl once she learned to trust.
Lani popped up about 5 tumours just before she died, so when Aki got one, I left it alone thinking there would be many more on the way. Her armpit tumour stayed small for a long long time, until suddenly it grew and fast. Her health was awesome, never been sick, no more lumpies, so at 2 years of age I decided that the tumour had to be removed. I was expecting to give her a few months without her “sidecar” but sadly fate had other plans. A week after the surgery, she developed PT symptoms…sigh. The kind that do not respond to the steroid therapy like it’s a miracle cure. After I found that her cagemates weren’t really comforting her I popped her in with my extremely healthy 3-year-old Valora, who quickly figured out she’s a good nursemaid. Aki was doing very well for about a week, and then slipped quickly downhill last night. Tonight she quietly left the world cuddled up on my neck.

She, Bronwen and Tucker were inseparable, so I am not surprised they all left within 1 ½ weeks of each other. They are now together again.
When she was just Blue Girl

Aki approves of her FN


She was such a pretty and content girl. And don’t Russian blues look just fabulous on green


She became a serious licker


My beautiful cuddlebug


Her poor incision never got to heal, but boy did she love Mom feeding her Ensure


Bronny, Aki and Tucker...reunited.
