This is probably the hardest thing I ever had to do. Pokee was diagnosed with bacteria after his dental surgery. He had been active and doing okay and they weren’t able to find out what exact bacteria he had until 3 days ago. The vet gave him antibiotics to treat them, but all of a sudden Pokee was feeling much worse. I took him to an emergency clinic at 1 am, because he wasn’t able to properly move anymore along with other symptoms that scared me to pieces. They weren’t able to find out what was wrong with him. So yesterday morning I took him to his vet and it turns out he had a blood infection which was caused by another different kind of bacteria. This bacteria was able to multiply while the other kind died and released some toxins. The vet did everything he could, I did everything that was possible and Pokee fought the entire day and night . Our dear community, I want you all to know that you guys have given us so much strength yesterday with all your lovely messages. We have all united our strength and love to help Pokee fight until the very end. We gave him the power to do what was best for him and take this decision. Saying goodbye must have been so hard for him, because he was such a little warrior. But in the end, all that matters is that he is no longer in pain and able to rest in peace. He fell asleep and looked so peaceful and thankful this morning ❤️ . My dear Pokee, I love you with all of my heart, unconditionally and always. You’re forever in my heart, always remembered as the sweet little angel that you are. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the happy moments you’ve given me and for being here for me when I needed you the most. One part of me died with you, the other one will keep you in my heart for eternity ♾ . Let’s remember Pokee the way he would’ve wanted us to remember him: As the sweet little fellow he was. Let’s go out there today and celebrate him, let’s laugh, spend time with our loved ones and make him smile this time. Rest in peace, little angel

Wiesbaden.Im Sturm hatte er das Internet erobert: der Instagram-Igel Mr. Pokee. Mehr als 1,3 Millionen Menschen folgten dem Igel, der bei Besitzerin Talitha Girnus in Hessen lebte, auf Instagram. Tausendfach wurden seine Videos geklickt.

Am Wochenende hatte Girnus eine traurige Nachricht für Mr. Pokees Fans: Nach einer Zahnoperation sei eine bakterielle Infektion diagnostiziert worden, schreibt die Studentin auf Instagram. Die Antibiotika, die der Tierarzt dem Igel gegeben hatte, schlugen nicht an, der Igel fühlte sich immer schlechter. Weil er sich mitten in der Nacht nicht mehr richtig bewegen konnte, brachte Girnus ihn in eine Notfallklink – ohne Erfolg. Am Freitagmorgen stellte der Tierarzt eine Infektion fest und konnte nichts mehr tun. Am Samstagmorgen ist Mr. Pokee eingeschlafen.

„Das ist möglicherweise das Schwierigste, was ich je tun musste“, schreibt Girnus am Anfang des Instagram-Posts, in dem sie die Netzgemeinde vom Tod des Igels informiert. „Ein Teil von mir ist mit dir gestorben, der andere wird dich für immer in meinem Herzen behalten.“ Mehr als 20 000 Kommentare sind unter dem Foto zu finden, fast 300 000 Menschen haben mit einem Herz reagiert (Stand: Sonntagnachmittag).
