Guinea Pigs Gone to the Rainbow Bridge
2008 - Present
It is said that when we lose a friend, there is a new star in the sky at night. On these cold, bleak Winter nights I look up, and through my tears I see the stars of a constellation twinkling in the sky. I hope your spirits run free, dashing and playing in meadows of sweet timothy grass, with cool waters to sip and sweet fruits to nibble and play with. May you have places to explore, treats beyond measure, and cardboard to nibble. To all our gentle beloved piggies, we will always love you.

My little girlie Loulou (6) has gone to meet her family at the Rainbow Bridge on Wednesday night. She had two ovarian cysts and has lost a lot of
weight. At the time I still believed that vets in this country are knowledgable about GP's but how wrong I was. I am from Germany you see, trusting them to know how to help my little girl. We went through agonising months of mite treatment, antibiotics, etc. I was also told I was feeding her wrong (GertyGP, grass, fruit/veg twice daily, hay)! Al the while she was losing more weight. I finally did my own research. I'm so upset, I didn't do this earlier. She could still be alive and well.
In the end I got in touch with Vedra at the Cavy Trust and she finally diagnosed and treated Lulu. But she had lost too much weight and was very fragile. She passed away Wednesday night with her friend Weasley watching over her.
She was a very lively girl always, always hungry (bit like me). She loved her cuddles and stealing food from the chubby ones. She will be sorely missed but she is now reunited with her mother Poombah, her auntie Bubble and her brothers Stewie and Liquorice. Sleep tight my darling!
