Blu Joined Beep in Pea Heaven Last Night

Our beloved Blu was not doing very well yesterday when my daughter got home from work.  
He had a blank stare and was lethargic.  
She gave him some antibiotics, a warm blanket and some snuggles and hoped for the best 
but it was not to be.  
We suspect he may have hit his head rather than being ill as it was so sudden.

Blu sustained an ankle injury when he was young and had to have surgery.  
He used to hop along on the one good foot but he never regained full use of that foot.  
He fathered LOTS of pea babies!  
Many of them this year so my daughter has some consolation 
in that she can keep one or more of his kids to carry on. 
 He was just 7 years old.  
When said daughter was living at our house she actually hatched out a few peafowl.  
Blu and Osiris hatched nearly the same time.  
Osiris preceeded him into pea Heaven.  
They hatched in her bedroom in a little styrofoam incubator, along with Jocelyn, the turkey.  
She still has that turkey and she is actually the bird that hatched the last batch of eggs from Blu's pen!

Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers.  
It has been a tough year losing our beloved Autumn cat, Beep and now Blu.

RIP Blu, I will always have a very soft spot in my heart for you!
