    Re: Bye Bye Birdy

    I am so sorry for you loss. These little furry family members certainly make a deep impression on our hearts.

    When my girl Bell lost her buddy MuMu, who was the alpha, she was in a funk. I did a...

    Sick: Re: Prayers for Sparky.......

    I have been watching for updates and it is good to see that Sparky is home.

    I try to learn a bit from every thread I read here and this one reinforces the need to have an emergency fund...
  3. Conditions: Re: Moving Cross Country, Pig Status Declining

    This would be strictly a rescue mission and foster. I certainly would not mind having piggies in the house though.

    I hope we hear a good outcome on this situation.
  4. Conditions: Re: Moving Cross Country, Pig Status Declining

    Are they crossing the United States (there are members here from several countries and I didn't see a location)? If they are near Missouri I would take the piggies in and work out transportation to...

    Behavior: Re: Very nippy guinea pig

    My oldest daughters piggie would nip and even drew blood on me. I found that she nipped/bit when startled and I had to take extra care when picking her up, petting her, lap time, ect... If I moved...
  6. Behavior: Re: New guinea pig is hiding/isn't eating veggies

    Piggies can time to become accustomed to you. It took several weeks of slowly introducing my girl to hand feeding lettuce and bell pepper to get to the point where I could get her and not have her...
  7. Frustrated: Re: Wild Snakes trying to eat my piggies?

    Make sure your lot is clear of tall grass, wood piles, or anyplace that would make a nice place for mice or rabbits to hide. It will also reduce cover for the snakes. Make sure your crawl spaces...

    Behavior: Re: Figuring Out Normal Piggie Behavior

    Every piggie has a different personality. Make sure to weigh both at regular intervals so you can try to stay in front of health issues. Make sure that hiding spots have two ways out so that a...

    Re: To My Junie Girl

    They are so small, yet leave such a deep impression on us. They give so much and ask so little. They are a part of our world and we are all of theirs. Your little girl knew your love and is...

    Re: For my Baby Bella

    It was difficult losing Mumu even though some time has passed. Losing Bella perhaps more so. Before Bella passed I swore I would never have another small, furry family member. A few days after...

    Re: For my Baby Bella

    I wanted to take a moment to make it clear that my daughter never lost interest in Bella. She was never neglected and if anything was super spoiled. Through the trials and tribulations of high...

    Re: For my Baby Bella

    Thank you for the kind words.

    The loss of Mumu was hard, the loss of Bella as much so. I can feel the void in the house hold and the space they occupied remains empty. I can't bring myself to...

    That line doesn't work to well with my wife. That is one of the reasons I am waiting until the house remodel is complete before building a cavy condo. At least my daughter returning from college is...

    Re: Monitoring your pigs.

    WOW! You hit the nail on the head when you said our stories run in parallel. I would ask my wife to send me pictures and video of my girl if I was travelling for work.

    It took me several days to type this as I could feel the tears well up and I had to step away. It will be awhile before I can do this again for my baby Bella. She deserves it though and it is my...

  22. Behavior: Re: Worried about my three pigs after their sister passed away

    It will take them a little time to adjust and you will probably see one of the three step up and take charge. I would be conservative with introducing too many changes, maybe relocating hideys spots...

    Re: Rest in peace Sugar

    You clearly cared deeply for Sugar and were doing your best to help him. Take time to grieve, remember happy times, and let those good thoughts wash over you. Allow yourself to find peace.
