Why has this happened? Or does it just happen to the best of us sometimes
I believe it is just that - sometimes it just happens to the best of us...despite all our care and love. I have taken in sick and well tortoises over the years and most who have passed away I have known why, a background to help understand or an inkling and there is some closure. One very recent one passed as I say and not a clue. Just died. Pneumonia can be a silent killer as well as obvious indicator, wouldn't be weed killer. It is the not knowing and whether you could have prevented it or did enough....that hurts more I think.
Worth a consideration for a RIP section maybe. Must happen to lots of people.
