We received Choupette after she was abandoned by a woman at the end of her life who was not allowed to take her with her.
By the way, I'm going to make a little parenthesis. I find it unfair and heartbreaking to see how many elderly people are separated from their pets by force of circumstance, even though people like us would be willing to care for them wherever they go. Especially these small animals that don't take up much space. These people pay over $2,000 a month for lousy services and are isolated from everything they love. This is nothing less than the abuse of elderly people at the end of their lives, although not senile.
Now back to Choupette. It took me a while to write about her, the sadness of talking about her.
We lost her a few months ago, she was fine 10 minutes before, eating, playing with her friend Mini-Boulle and 10 minutes later on her back, probably a heart attack according to the vet.
She was very old I must say. She gave us a lot, she took care of many of our motherless puppies that came to the shelter. She was a social guinea pig with the other guinea pigs as well as with us humans.
She gave us wonderful moments in life and I do not regret having her in our home.
