I see I have not updated this since Lotus passed away two weeks ago.  We have, since then, lost four more guinea pigs, all of them older, but it is still hard to lose that many in a short period of time.  Milo, Pudding, Jillian, and Joe have all gone on to the Rainbow Bridge in the last 14 days.  That puts our current count at 18, plus one as we have a new arrival coming today.  The same thing happened with a string of deaths last year; most of the guinea pigs were elderly, not living together, and not even near each other, so there is no illness being spread.  Unfortunately, we have had some guinea pigs here for 6-7 years, and I'm sure more will be leaving us as the weeks and months pass.   :(
