Sighs. The single most difficult part of fur family relationships is saying good bye, or not. We lost one of our fur family members early this morning without warning, and needless to say we're all shocked and terribly saddened. From what I've read the average life span is 4-5 years but he seemed so virile just yesterday, whistling and waddling about in his cage. This is all so very sudden which compounds the grief, although I guess, you're never fully ready to lose a pet.
Beau, our Peruvian Cavy was with us only a short time in our lives, but his entire lifetime. He has left us with rich memories and an unrivaled standard in cavy coiffure. Beau was an undeniably striking fellow, with his flowing tortoise locks and come hither stare. Okay, the stare was more, Where's the alfalfa? than come hither, but these are my memoirs; I'm allowed such liberties. Smiles
