So today is a sad day. Fudge had been poorly was being treated and perked up last few days thought he was back to normal but today unfortunately he passed away..they are only 6 months old... this may be a bit soon but I'm just trying to do right by nibbles :( nibbles and fudge had always been together since I bought them.. I'm worried that nibbles will now get lonely.. whats the best thing I can do for him.. I really want him to be as happy as possible xx

In the short term you can try giving him a teddy-bear/stuffed toy, one that's not filled with beans, just in case he chews it. I know it may sound odd but some pigs really are comforted by soft toys. For the long term I suggest trying to find him a friend. It can seem daunting but if you click on the rescue finder at the top of the page and contact your nearest one they are very likely to do what they can to help find a suitable match for Nibbles. I may feel too soon but by the time you've organised a visit for a 'dating session' Nibbles may feel ready for a new friend. xx

I'm so sorry this has happened to you as I know you have looked after your guinea pigs really well and were very prompt to react when Fudge was ill. Please remember - you are grieving too and you need to think about yourself as much as Nibbles.
As far as Nibbles is concerned , the sooner he can find a new companion - the better. But , please don't start any thing until you are ready to. Also, please bear in mind , many rescues are busy so you may have a wait if you decide to take Nibbles boar dating.
