We lost our lovely little Miss Myrtle today. We rescued her back in July and she settled in really well with Parsley. They both went in for surgery today: Parsley to have a lump removed from his eyelid (unlikely to be a 'nasty', thankfully) and Myrtle to be spayed after the vet examined her and felt a big ovarian cyst. The vet and I 'ummed and ahhhed' about whether to take it out but decided it might well cause problems in the future so better out than in. When he operated he found two big cysts and there were lots of complications - haemmorhage etc. He is a great guinea pig vet and really fought for her. She came round but passed away soon after.

Bye bye lovely Myrtle, such a pretty grey cuddly little girl. x

Thank you all for your lovely messages. I'm glad Myrtle was so well and happy before her op and didn't have to endure suffering.

Parsley is well and fairly lively today: a bit subdued (not surprising - he had a general anaesthetic yesterday and is missing his friend) but he's eating and drinking well. We're giving him lots of cuddles. In due time (without ever forgetting Myrtle) we will be back to Kate at the piggy rescue to get him a new little friend.
