hiya when we lost her cagemate mavis i was devastated, but scruffs had the other two for company but i know she pined for mavis. and even though she ate well and plenty of it she was so skinny and i made her a jacket so she wouldnt be cold,, what happened ,, she chewed it to bits lol. scruffs was a character and their grave is in the place where they ate a lot in the garden. thank you xx

Yes they do pine, Brodie is still pining for Guiness even though he has another cage mate , We have a marked Grave as well, and I go and saying good morning every day to Guiness he too was a character they really leave a hole in your heart - I wish I had thought of the jacket theme for Guiness but no doubt he would have chewed it off as well !

9 is an amazing age! I lost my Benny at just 2 years old due to post-op complications. He was far too young :( My piggies are now 5 and 3 years old.
