Farewell Mocha and Hello Biscuit
It's a beautiful, freezing Saturday morning and I had to go pick up Mocha from Barkshire Pet Care Services in Neenah, WI. Bear was also not with me today, so it's things I had to face alone - such as driving through County Road A through pure ice. I've never done that, but here I am in one piece!
Finally, I laid my sweet prince Mocha to rest and he will stay with us forever.
Today, I also had to go back to the Oshkosh Humane Society to pickup a new special piig - Biscuit Piig. It's a bit bittersweet, having to bid farewell to Mocha and welcoming a new family member.
Rainbow Mocha & the New Big Piig
I am posting this with a very heart. I rarely post about sad things but it is part of life so it's quite inevitable at some point.
My Rainbow Mocha
Everything was all good, everything was just fine until I went up Saturday night to find an unresponsive and cold Mocha Piig. I was alone at home, with a little puppy who needed so much care - I felt so helpless. There was nothing I can do anymore for Mocha. There was nothing I can do for myself but cry there and break down.
The Piig Kingdom
And today, I present to you the new and improved...
Alright, alright - it's not as fancy as the other guinea pig cage setups but I'm actually really happy that they now have all this space to play and popcorn! I decided to expand the Midwest enclosure a few months ago and I purchased my C&C Cages since. I couldn't set it up yet because I wanted to set them up in this room and I was still painting at the time.
The Midwest Cage has an area of about 7 square feet. It's the minimum that's good for two piigs. Mocha and Machiatto had some bad fights and even Bear noticed that the enclosure is just two small for the boys.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
