Leaving little Beeps who arrived in Sheila’s care on March 30th. At the time she was only hours old, weighing a paltry 3.1 oz.

She was very dirty and had one big flea looking to make a home in her fur. Sheila got a tiny brush removing most of the dirt and evicting the flea. But worse of all, Beeps was still extremely weak.

Her suckling response was good but she could only latch on for short periods, as she lacked the energy to feed properly.

Because of this Shiela had to feed her each and every hour, supplementing these feeds with fluids, both to make up for what she couldn’t eat and also keep her hydrated.

Beeps was a fighter, wanting to live, never giving up she began to gain weight day by day.

Soon she was starting to thrive, but then things took a turn for the worse!
