So, sad news, one of my guinea piggies died this morning!!!!! Arthur Doc died, probably of old age. We rescued him 2 years ago from the kill shelter in Fort Wayne, IN when I went to take a pet first aid class. He was swirly dark chocolate and caramel, and will be missed, especially by his cage mate and best bud, Henry Moe. Henry was rescued from when I worked at the no-kill shelter in my town from a lady who rescued him from a crazy neighbor who was going to put him in the woods. He is fine, but lonely. I bought him a fancy schmancy stick house, some special treats, new hay, and a stuffed blue porcupine friend. Send loving thoughts his way! .
So sorry for your loss. He was lucky to have lived with someone who cared so much for him.
