Bridgett and Bill

In the last months of Bridgett's life, Bill decided that she was looking thin and took her to work with him in order to give her an extra feeding. After the feeding she would explore up and down the hallways of the Astronomy Department of the University of Maryland, College Park, eventually ending up in a sleep sack in Bill's office.

This image, the last good picture we have of her, was taken during this period in early May 2002, the last few weeks of her life. She is very thin and has lost most of her hair, but still likes to explore.
