Today I lost my best friend my guinea pig. We were really close to each other. I dont know how he died but I'm guessing because of his age. I had him for 3 years i got him from someone but the person (the old owner) didnt wanna say his age so I'm guessing he was already old back then. I only had one guinea pig and now he died I dont know if i should get another one but I'm constantly saying to myself that ill never get a guinea pig like him ever again😭. It was yesterday still that i had him with me he was so good it was like a goodbye atleast it felt that way. I dont know how to cope about this i keep on crying and crying i cant stop.

I am so sorry for your loss. It’s hard when you lose them suddenly. You need to give yourself time to grieve before you consider getting any more, it takes time. He is special and you won’t find another like him, but they are all special in their own way, so if you were to get more, then you would love them for their own uniqueness.

If you do decide to get more then please do get a pair, they shouldn’t be kept alone so having two would be better idea should you decide to get more.

Only get guinea pigs if you are ready, take your time to grieve. If you do get new guinea pigs you need to get two same sex piggies, so they can be companions. Wally is now popcorning around the rainbow bridge 🌈

Today I lost my best friend my guinea pig. We were really close to each other. I dont know how he died but I'm guessing because of his age. I had him for 3 years i got him from someone but the person (the old owner) didnt wanna say his age so I'm guessing he was already old back then. I only had one guinea pig and now he died I dont know if i should get another one but I'm constantly saying to myself that ill never get a guinea pig like him ever again😭. It was yesterday still that i had him with me he was so good it was like a goodbye atleast it felt that way. I dont know how to cope about this i keep on crying and crying i cant stop.

Hi. I am so terribly sad and sorry to read that your dear Wally has died. I totally know how you feel, my own Fudgie died yesterday. I appreciate the utter heartbreak and physical and emotional pain it brings.
Maybe you could make a list of things you could do in order to honour Wally. For example, post a nice photo of Wally on social media with a description of how you feel, what he means to you. The support you receive in replies could help you. Also. Find a little trinket box and place Wally's belongings in there but keep it out close to you, don't store it away just yet. Put some more photos in frames. I always snip a little piece of fur from my pigs coat to keep forever. Little things to help you kerp him close to you. But I think the best thing is to talk aboit Wally in the present tense, that's what I'm trying to do. To talk aboit my Fudgie as if he's no longdr here, makes me feel panicky, so because I believe he's still with me, I TRY to talk about him in the present.
Try and look after yourself. I'm neither eating nor sleeping, but I know i need to. I just don't want to. Wally will be with you forever x

It sounds like Wally was quite old by the time you lost him and so you must have cared a lot about him. It is beyond heart breaking to lose them. I think about my lost piggy every day, but intense grief does pass.
If you like and when you feel ready you could post Wally in the Rainbow Bridge Pets section showing others how special he was.
