View Full Version : Rest in Peace, little Junior

I have posted here off & on for the past several years. Thursday evening, our youngest little guinea pig Junior died. He was fine in the morning, popcorning around the living room & rumblestrutting with Mr. Pigg just like normal. He was eating fine and there were NO sign of any problems. We took off to run an errand, and when we came back he was gone.

Junior was not quite 2 years old... far too young as guinea pigs go. His cage-mate Mr. Pigg is currently 6 years old, and other than having epilepsy he's still going strong so we're pretty sure it must have just been a quick "something." We disinfected everything & gave Mr. Pigg a bath last night & threw out the bedding that had been in there, but I really don't know what else to do. We're praying that the other two boys will be okay. And so far they are.

This was my daughter's special piggie, and she is coping... well enough. If anyone wants to see, we put together a small memorial slideshow for him here - http://www.photoshow.net/watch/tF3kw3YJ (http://www.photoshow.net/watch/tF3kw3YJ)

I'm so sorry to hear that. He sounded like a great pig and it's obvious you loved him very much.

Rest in peace Junior

Give your daughter a hug from our family... and keep a hug for yourself.

I am so sorry about little Junior.

Geez... I should KNOW better than view that slideshow.
Blinding back the tears now.
Losing one of these little ones is so difficult.
