Rolly the Runt died this morning. He was born without a tail and without an anus and couldn't expel waste. We tried to save him (before knowing about his anus) but it didn't work. He stopped breathing for over a minute last night, his little body all rigid. But then he relaxed and started breathing again. We held him and loved on him as much as possible and he died early this morning. I've never gone through something like that. It's just sad. The poor little guy.
