A few days ago our guinea pig Patches passed away. We noticed last Sunday that he was sneezing and wasn't feeling well. Tuesday morning Chris said that when he went to feed him he was all fluffed up and didn't want to be messed with. When I came home for lunch that day I went over to check on him. I noticed that he was very lethargic and decided to call the vet to make an appointment to get him in. When I went back over to him, he had moved over to his food dish and passed away shortly after that. He died in his favorite place.
We had him for 5 years and he lived 2 years without his friend Smokey. Patches loved Chris and loved sitting on Chris's shoulder and watching TV and eating carrots. It is always so hard to lose a pet. Patches will be greatly missed by us. May you rest in peace!
