In memory of Star - September 2009 to May 2015

We got Star along with her sisters Moon and Flower Junior in early September to replace our first lost piggy Flower. She was always the bottom of the pecking order but proved she had a bolshy streak when Sunshine recovered from an Op and Star looked after her. She had a number of health scares including heatstroke one summer, two bouts of complete paralysis and finally arthritis. But when we eventually lost her sisters and Sunshine she quickly became a Diva before the newcomers. She introduced us to the joys of Guinea Pig Song, the clanking of water bottles and piggy nails on laminate. She was forever making forays into the kitchen during floor time looking for veggies and often raided shopping bags if left unattended.

She was well traveled on our caravan journeys starting out with a weekend in Clent but progressing to 5 annual visits to Weymouth, 2 to the Isle of Wight, Newquay on the welsh coast, Norfolk, Weston under lizard, 2 visits to Bridport, Frome near Longleat, and many others finally spending her last holiday at Easter at Cheddar. Over 200 nights caravanning and possibly 10,000 miles of travel, not forgetting her stay with Debbie at TEAS and her stays at VI Piggies with Tracy.

We are so going to miss you Star and you taught us so much about piggy personality and care.

Star was a wonderful piggy. What an exciting and adventurous life she led! That picture of her watching the raindrops has stayed with me ever since I first saw it.

I'm so sorry it was her time to go to the bridge.

What a lovely tribute to a very special lady! I enjoyed meeting Star at various dos; she was never really fazed by all the hubbub around her!

Star is leaving you with lots of precious memories, even though they are not enough to make up for her being such a big part of your life.
