    Unhappy Goodbye Twix

    Well, Twix Passed Away About 2 Weeks Ago, But I Thought About Him A Lot Yesterday And Today. I Adopted Twix And His Brother, Snickers 2 Years Ago. They Got Along Well, A Couple Of Fights But Never Anything Serious. But Around 2 Weeks Ago, I Noticed He Was Acting Like Weak? I Picked Him Up, He Just Wasn't Acting Like Himself. We Wen't To A Vet (I'll Be Honest, He's Never Been To A Vet I Know That's Horrible, But We Just Don't Have The Money For Checkups On Both Our Pigs. I Feel Bad About That As It May Have Been The Cause Of His Death) But They Said They Didn't Really Do Guinea Pigs And The Place That Does Is Closed. They Gave Us Some Antibiotics Anyway And Gave Him His First Dose. At Home We Separated Twix And Snickers And Put Twix In A Spare Cage. I Held Him For A Bit Longer And He Seemed Relaxed. In The Morning He Was Gone. I Miss Him So Much And Now Snickers Is All Alone. I'm Also Wondering If I Should Get Snickers A Cage mate Since I've Heard It's Bad To Keep A Single Pig, I Am Worried Though Since He's Always Been A Tad Aggressive.Click image for larger version.

    I'm very sorry to hear about little Twix. Sometimes an illness for a pig can come on so fast that nothing can be done. You gave him a great life and I'm sure you and Snickers are going to miss him greatly. Please do think about a buddy for Snickers, it would be of great benefit for him.

    Rest in Peace, Twix.

    I'm so very sorry you lost little Twix, I know how painful the loss is, we just recently lost a beloved piggy. If I were you I would look into getting a new buddy for Snickers, they're social creatures and do much better housed with their own kind.
    We have been introducing our remaining piggy to a new baby piggy today, and so far things have gone really well. You have to be willing to put the time in and do introductions properly, but it is so worth it when you see your bereaved piggy bonding with a new buddy.
    Run free at the bridge little Twix, and please give my Luigi all my love and kisses when you see him.
