Subject: Icarus is sick :(

Hi all,

I don't know if anyone remembers me from years ago when I first got Icarus and always sought advice on how to best care for him.

Anyway, Icarus is 8 1/2 years old now and has recently gotten sick. I don't know what to do and I think he may be dying. He's very lethargic and barely eats. I have a calcium, magnesium supplement with vit D that I got from the health food store. I've gotten 0.1-0.2 ml down him a day and he seemed to to better. But now he's not doing so well... soft breathing, very weak, and very tolerant of my touching him in ways he never used to tolerate. His main symptom is that he seems to have trouble pooping and makes a weird noise and seems to struggle with it.

I don't know what else I can do for him and feel like he may be suffering a bit. I was wondering if anyone hasany advise for other things I may try given that many of you have more experience than I do.

I guess I'm just trying to figure out if he's sick or if it's his time...

Thanks guys
