    Guilty

    Hi, so I’m new to this forum, I’ve actually never used one before. 2 almost 3 years ago I got 2 guinea pigs. I loved them so dearly. They fought and never got on, so I put them in separate cages - with the prospect of introducing them again later (which I tried, but the still didn’t get along)...

    One of My Boys, Koda, Died

    Hey everyone. I haven't been around for a while due to personal circumstances that have kept me busy. My mom had a heart attack and can't get scheduled for surgery to help her because of covid, and we're moving my grandma into hospice tomorrow. Naturally, this is utterly heartbreaking to me...

    Bereaved Sow during Coronavirus

    Hello everyone, Yesterday morning, we unexpectedly found one of our sows, Nibbles, passed in her cage. The previous night she was showing no signs of acting different, so we were very surprised and are grieving. However, she left our other pig, Charlotte on her own, who is only 2 and a half...

    Bereaved single Piggy.

    Hello, lovely forum. As some of you may or may not know, we lost our sweet Biscuit yesterday morning after a short battle with illness and not eating. I am not yet ready to post in the Rainbow thread, my heart is too tender. I have read the guides to looking after a bereaved Piggy, and just...

    Re-bonding after Cuy passing

    Hi all, my gorgeous Cuy boar (Chip) passed recently at just under 11 months - it was my first Guinea pig loss and it was only worsened by how short his life was. My main concern however, is my very dominant - now bereaved - boar Cookie. Today I am bonding him with Sundae, another boar who he...

    Bereaved Guinea Pig

    Hello! Sammy (neutered two year old boar) lost his companion on Friday and I am very upset but I know I need to focus on Sammy. Sammy is quiet, lonely and not himself, more scared than usual. I need to get him a friend regardless of my feelings of grief. I have looked around rescues near me...

    One of our boars passed away - what should we do next?

    On the 1st of February, one of my beloved boars unfortunately passed away due to a problem with his digestive system. Me and my father are very sad about this, as you could probably guess, but we feel even worse because now we have a lonely boar. We love him with all our hearts and want the best...

    Not Wheeking Any More

    since we lost Fudge on the 9th April I've not heard Buddy or Peanut wheeking. They all used to wheek every single day when it was veggie time. Fresh hay time or even if I came home from work and shouted "hello piggies" up the stairs to them all. I thought it would just take time for them to...

    Bereaved Question

    Hello all. New here. Yes, I read the above threads, but as you all know when this happens you still have to ask. So, we lost a pig yesterday. Truffles. He died very quickly, as did his brother (actual brother, from the same litter, who passed away about 4 months ago). They were bought from a...

    How To Tell A Child That A Beloved Guinea Pig Has Died?

    Hello all. Lloyd, the piggy on the left in my profile picture, passed away overnight after a very brief and rapid illness, leaving behind his best buddy and cage-mate, Harry. While the pair of them belong to me, I have many nieces and nephews who are also very much invested in the boys' care...

    Getting My Guinea Pig A New Friend

    Four years ago I bought 2 beautiful baby guinea pigs (both female) and they have grown up together. Unfortunately, last night one of them passed away and so my remaining piggy is now alone. I am wondering whether to get her a new friend? She seems ok at the moment - she is still eating but seems...

    Need A New Cage Mate For My Bereaved Piggie

    my piggie Rupert has been on his own almost a week now and his behaviour has changed- he's hiding more and not moving around etc. I've been giving him extra cuddles but I know it doesn't make up for piggie company. I was looking for rescues near me and found cavy haven and made an appointment...
