      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Devastated

Recommended Posts

I'm completely devastated. I lost my guinea pig today and I can't stop crying. I keep waiting to hear her whistle when I go upstairs and it's just silence. I didn't think it would be this hard. I am completely crushed. I miss her so much. My cat just sits where her cage was and its heartbreaking. I don't know how I'm going to get through tonight. It's very painful.

Awww i am so sorry about your sweet little companion.  It is so hard to lose them and unfortunately everyone here completely understands just how devastated you feel right now. Just let yourself cry however much you need to.  Adjusting to life after we have to say goodbye to a furry friend takes time and it is ok be sad.  It will get better with time so try to be patient and kind to yourself.  You will meet really sweet people here who have all had to deal with loss and hopefully it will help you get through this difficult time.  big hugs sent your way.

Aawww I'm sorry is so hard to say goodbye they become so much part of who we are, I had a guinea pig years ago and was devastated when she died, she was the first furbaby I ever lost and I can remember walking past her empty cage in the days after, it was my first taste of the bittersweet joy of having furbabies.  Take care and thinking of you.

I’m so sorry, it is devastating to lose your friend. I understand about the “silence” it can be overwhelming. If you would like to talk more about her we’re here. I personally, would love to see a picture of her - if/when you’d like to.

Thank you for all the replies it helps talking to people who understand. I got through the day today but last night was rough. I was fine until I got home and instinctively I looked to where her cage was cause that's what I usually do soon as I get home from work and seeing her not there just brought back all the tears again.  I am sharing a photo of her I recently found on my phone. It was the first bath I had given her.

Ahh, very cute, thanks for sharing!  I know it'll be tough for a good long while.  What we wouldn't give to keep them safe and happy for many more years than they actually get.
