  • alas, poor steve, we actually knew him remarkably well! :eek:


    :( Poor Naeni :( He's been as much a part of here as you have :(

    "The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can't do."

  • So sorry to hear this Annie. You gave him the best life that anyone could possibly give him :(

  • Didn't we all have avatars with Steve in once upon a time? Though if memory serves, some sicko made me an avatar of my bus with a blood splattered Steve exploding under my front wheels, so maybe now is not the best time!

  • Cheers all...

    I have some cool avatars on my pc, I'd say I'd dig them out but I know I'd forget!

    Hes been back to forth to the vets after he was just looking rather sad, they said he had a respiratory somethingorother and he was having 3 medicines a day, as well as injections, and since March he's had to be manually poo-ed about twice a week, although last week it's been pretty much every day with me and my partner doing it. We thought he was getting better, but yesterday he was sat in his volcano, when we picked him up he was soaking from all his snot, just pouring out..... let him run about the room for a bit but he just went in the corner facing the wall. Even Mike, whos normally nipping and pestering him, left him alone. Went in this morning and it was very odd, he was lying against the bars really heavily, and mike was lying outside (very strange for both the igloo and volcano to be unoccupied, theres normally fights over them) Picked him up and he was all floppy and non moving, cept for the odd twitch of his neck, so put him in bed with us to keep him warm and gave him lots of smooths til his eyes closed. My Phil's a big viking of a man and even he was crying this morning. I had to shoot off to work :( so we buried him when I got back, at the bottom of the garden. Mikes super sad and moping now, so I've contacted a Cardiff rescue and waiting to hear back.

    It feels very bizarre, "he's only a guinea pig".. the pair of them have been like weird hairy children I've carted all over the UK but i feel like i had the bugger forever, and he was more than a guinea pig... he was a very odd creature :)
