So my 6 year old guinea pig died yesterday from heat stroke R.I.P cicko I am angry because 2 months ago he got 2 lumps under his neck and I visited all vets before the final one that helped us all others where saying he is dead he needs to be euthanized but no we got medicine and we syringe feed him for 2 weeks he was getting better and and like a month ago he was back to his full self with lumps going smaller..bur he lost alot of weight (which he gained back) but it was big shock for body so this summer we choosed to take him on holiday since we tought it would be our last and on the first day of holiday my brother mom and dad went to beach and i stayed in room i filled my guineas water and made sure that fan is blowing on him and put some lettuce i fell asleep while watching him eat some lettuce(last time i would see him alive) when i waked up my brother was near his cage (maybe 1 hour later) and said I think cicko isnt feeling well at that point i opened the cage and took him out from his little house he was limp and hot i took him to bathroom and slowly sprayed water but he was already dead.
He loved eating all vegies and he would lick my fingers and he liked to be pet ubder his chin rest in peace brother I am sorry I should of known better I hope you liked me bro so sad you had to go this way after everything. I would upload photos but we are still on this damned holiday when we come back I will he was such a cute guy he looked like he was still a baby.. Good night old friend I hope you liked those 6 years you spent with me i hope you liked me.. See you and good bye my old friend <3

I am so sorry for the loss of your piggy, he would have known how much you loved him and he would have loved you in return

Sleep well little one

RIP Cicko

I'm so sorry, our 1st piggies we always have a special bond with and it hurts like hell to lose them.I recently lost one of my female guinea pigs, she's the 4th one I've lost in the last 11 years and I really miss her, I miss her squeaking when she heard me come down the stairs etc.We all know what you're going through.

RIP Cicko and hugs to you xx

I totally understand.When I've lost a pig or if they're really ill and I'm paying a lot for vet bills I've had people say why don't you just buy a new one which really pisses me off.It just shows how ignorant some people are.My friends don't really understand why I'm so upset when I've lost a pig so I know where you're coming from there.I actually joined this forum in 2012 after I lost my 1st pig bill and needed like minded people to talk to x

Also there is no time limit for greiving.For me after a week it doesn't feel as raw but I still feel upset when something reminds me of them x

Yeah I already know it will be long process same happend to me when my cicko was ill no one really understands that he is and was kinda part of my family with whateber you live for years like he lived with me and see him everyday you will bond with it and you will be sad when it dies it can even be a fish or whatever.. those people dont understand that because they never had pet so they don't know you can like a animal like you can like a human

I am very sorry for your loss. Cicko was well loved!

It is not a sign of weakness to show grief, rather a sign of strength - you are honouring a being that has been an important part of your life. We have the freedom to love our pets unconditionally, but that also means that we have to pay a heavy price when they go. Grieving is the other side of the same coin; like shade brings light out, grieving makes us aware how important our love and our ability to give and receive love is. Grieving makes us also more mature and more understanding of others. It is tough when you are expected to be happy by those who do not understand.

The hardest bit when losing a beloved one, whether it is a pet or a person, after the initial pain of the immediate loss is to get used to somebody not being in your life anymore. it is the many often unthinking little ties that bring your loss home unexpectedly that hurt the most. Eventually it settles down, but you grieve as much as you love. There are no shortcuts.

HUGS!
