    Our little Sydney died five years ago and his mate Ladybird,
    did the same thing for almost a year. That was five years
    ago. They were together for twelve years. She has lost
    interest in a lot of the things they did together, but has
    stopped the constant mourning. I think you just have to give
    your little guy lots of love and attention and he will
    eventually heal. They are like humans that way. They mate
    for life and suffer dearly when they experience that loss.

    Just love him and be patient.
