We found out that Ralph had bladder stones back in May and the vet said that he wouldn't make it another the week and had no hopes for him whatsoever. But when he got home from the vets, after a few days he seemed back to his old self again and seemed very happy, running around everyone and eating loads of spinach - the vet said it was a miracle! But after months of being his normal self, about 10 days ago Ralph took a turn for the worst and got very ill again, we took him to the vets and they told us that his bladder stone had moved and got bigger. Sadly he didn't make it through the night last Friday :( Anyone that knows me will know how obsessed I was with him (and Henry) and it broke my heart to say goodbye to my fluffy little guinea! Henry seems really confused that Ralph isn't with him anymore and it's soo upsetting, but it means I get to give him extra cuddles! I've put a toy cow in his cage with him to try and 'keep him company' and sometimes he drags it into bed with him and sleeps with it, it's the cutest thing ever!
Losing a pet is the worst thing ever, as they can't tell you how they're feeling when they're ill and you feel so protective over them. Atleast poor Ralph isn't suffering anymore!
I miss him more and more each day!
R.I.P Ralph <3
