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, to the point they consider Harry and Lloyd their pets too. In light of Lloyd's passing, my sister has asked me for some pointers on how best to break the news to them, in a way that will help them understand what's happened, while minimising the risk of causing them any undue distress and anxiety in the days that follow. I don't have any children, and this is the first time I've ever had to deal with a piggy bereavement, so I'm at a bit of a loss about how best to suggest she approach this. Therefore, I wondered if anyone on the forum might have some pointers or top tips on how to deal with breaking the news about a dearly beloved pet passing away to little ones?
