The forest creatures were worried about Caramel the guinea pig (they thought he seemed thin), so I took him to the vet about a month ago, and she said he was fine--and it's certainly true that he was eating and drinking and gamboling much as ever. But, this morning when I came back in from the dog walk with some dandelion greens and Queen Anne's lace for him and Jewel, he was dead :-(

Poor old Caramel. Well, but he had a good life, I think. He had a big big space for living in, and was with Jewel whom he had known since he was little, and lots of fresh greens, and hay to play in and eat--and he did live to be three, which is on the low end of the guinea pig life span (3-6 years) but still, not untimely.

amanen will probably write about it all, next time she updates.

I don't have any digital photos of Caramel, though Shikuchi (our Little Springtime--everyone has more names than Aragorn around here) says she has some on a disk somewhere. I'll see if we can find a way, between the two of us, to put up a picture.

And now we must find a new guinea pig friend for Jewel, since guinea pigs like company.

Sorry to hear about this...my best to Little Springtime and to Jewel (in what ever way you can talk to a guinea pig.)

Thanks, I'll tell Little Springtime and give Jewel some extra Queen Anne's lace, from you.

Big, big *HUGS* Caramel was greatly loved while he was here and that is a wonderful gift to take on to the next level. Hope you find a wonderful new friend for Jewel.

Yeah, I think it was a good life all in all. It's just so weird/empty when things die. They're so... not there any more...
