Unfortunately, Ernie (who was adopted with Bert) had to be euthanized today after a short, severe illness. He was healthy when adopted out, and his new owner took excellent care of him until the very end. We are both upset, but sometimes this happens for no particular reason. We are both hoping that Bert will adjust well to the loss, as guinea pigs do grieve the loss of a cagemate.
