Hello! So I have been inactive for around a year. A lot of stuff happened, my first guinea pig (Tammy) died, then my second guinea pig (Crystal / Lil Chrissy). On the 27th of October, last year, Tammy died. It was a horrible experience, and it is soon reaching a year. Then, on 6th of December, Crystal died. I know it's been nearly a year, but to this day I still miss them. The way they got so happy to see me, when I came home (even though they just wanted food) and the way they just rested on me.

Sadly, Tammy died during the night. I will always regret that day, I couldn't spend much time with them in the morning because I woke up late. Then I came home late, fed them and added fresh hay ect. But, I only spent like 10 minutes with them because I had to go out. When I returned, I was so tired I feel asleep. Next day, woke up and there she was. I was a mess, I'll admit it, but I had to pull through and take care of Chrissy.
However, I was with Chrissy when she passed away. I remember scooping her up, because I just knew it was her time to move on. For like an hour, hugging her, I just went through old photos of Tammy and her. I had hay, blankets and her favorite bed there. During this time, I was also dealing with some other things, so it wasn't great.
When she passed, I felt some relief. At least I was with her and hopefully made her last few hours comfortable, but obviously I was horrified.

Despite the time, I decided to not get any new guinea pigs (well I couldn't anyway because of the virus). But, I will never forget them.

I hope everyone is safe and doing well! 🥰

There is not set time for grieving to stop and everyone grieves in different ways. Keep the memories of the good times in your heart and treasure them.
Take care of yourself
