Unhappy R.i.p. Prince

Prince passed yesterday 1-12-13. He died of dropsy. It came on quick. I called vets, stores, googled, tried a couple of treatments. They said there is no cure for dropsy. I'm quite sure it was I quick change in weather. I live in Tampa, Florida. He had been hiding in his cave for two days which is not normal. He usual goes in there just to sleep. When he finally decided to swim about there it was his stomach was several swollen. I was told it is bacteria which affects the kidneys meaning it's shutting down all his organs. He was definitely a fighter to the end. The only day he didn't eat was the day he passed. That's when I knew he was going to be leaving me.
