Kihone passed

I just wanted to give a quick update to everyone who has been following that we had to put Kihone (that beautiful white cornsnake I posted about the other day) this afternoon.
We tried what we could and the only option left was a surgery to remove the mass stuck in her intestines. The surgery was just not a good option as it was only about 50/50 that she would make it. So we have let her go.

Thanks for all you support up to know and in the future.

Mel I am very sorry to hear that Kihone is no longer with you. I know our pets become like children to many of us. I hope you are able to mourn her loss and find joy in your other babies. Sending big cyber hugs your way.

I am so sorry. Kihone will be waiting for you over the Rainbow Bridge where there is sunshine all the time and no pain.

I am so sorry to hear about Kihone, your snake. It is so hard to let them go and you miss them so much.
Your snakes a beautiful btw. I do love the black one and the corn snake does have wonderful markings.
I am also glad you are finally feeling better sometimes it is just a long road back to health.
Hang in there I will be praying for you and thinking about you.

Take care and God Bless ~
