Over the last two wheeks I have lost 4 of my oldest piggies . I cannot believe how they have all left me so near to each other . First Miss Piggie ,then Nibbles ,Skippy and today Nibbles brother Snuggles . They were very close to each other Snuggles and Miss Piggie were always together,They were all 6plus years old and not sure exact ages as they were rehomes, They have all followed the same pattern ,Quiet for a day or two ,Visit to the vet ,nothing specific found ,Teeth etc okay,just eating less and genereally slowing down.Sleeping lots . They have all died soon after being in my arms and I know that a lot of my piggies are getting old and so I must be prepared for this ,but it does not make it any easier. Sorry for any mistakes cant see the keyboard properly for tears.

How awful to lose so many, so close to each other. Hopefully you will have lots of lovely memories to help you. Most of mine are of a similar age, and I dread something like this happening. Really sorry for your loss. xx

Sorry to hear about you piggies. Remember that they just passed away from old age after a log and happy life which is all any of us can hope for.

Awwww that must be so awful to go through :(
All at such short times between eachother. Maybe the piggies were missing eachother, I once had two dogs and one passed away, the other didnt seem right without it around and then died soon after.
its not nice knowing we all have to go through this at some point :(

Sending you lots of hugs and piggy kisses from my Reggie x

I'm so very sorry for your losses.
Your piggies are all together at the bridge watching over their mummy.
Although we should be prepared, it does not make it any easier.
(((hugs))) x

BIG HUG

I am so sorry that you have lost so many of your "oldies" so close to each other! It is so difficult when there are no clear symptoms and it is so devastating to have to try and cope with so many losses all at once.
