Sadly Snuggles died at the vets at around 3am this morning. I got a phone call at around 9am.
I have felt devastated all day, upset, and really sorry I could not have Snuggled/Cuddled her for longer yesterday, because I felt so faint in the vets.
Today I have had to do practical things, that I really wasn’t in the mood for. I had to go to the bank to transfer money for rent and set up two accounts. Including, one for pet insurance. I also had to take the money out of my ISA to pay for Snuggles’s operation.
After the excruciating amount of money I have spent over last year and this year, I need to insure Snow and Chesnut. As Daisy had a lump problem before, and may still have one (check-up this Thursday), I cannot insure her for that, but I can for other illnesses that are non-related to any pre-existing conditions.
To my beautiful Snuggles:
Your eyes are gleaming,
Your love is beaming,
A ray of sunshine back into my heart.
I remember you as a baby,
Your tiny nose,
And fluffy whiskers
You always had such a bounce and spring in your step,
You lived your life with no regret,
You wheeked and wheeked for your favourite veg,
You bumbled along, bold and amazing.
You were a warrior and my hero,
Seeing you yesterday come back to life, from almost dead, was incredible,
You are sensational,
You are my bestest friend
And you always will be.
You licked my tears away from my face
With your gentle grace,
As I cried uncontrollably from my Grandma’s death.
Even though you were frailer,
Your eyes squinting and paler,
You still made the effort to lick my tears this week,
You were a second mum to me.
You were so cute, cuddly and snuggly.
You loved snuggling under my chin,
If guineapigs could smile,
You would have had an awesome grin.
You were the most beautiful and precious pig,
A gorgeous tri-colour.
If I grow up to be half as strong as you were,
I will be so proud of me,
But best of all,
I will always be so proud of you my dearest Snuggles,
You will forever be,
My little baby.
I love you with all of my heart,
Now and forever,
One day we will again be together,
But for now,
I will enjoy each and every minute of life.
Because to be alive is great,
It’s the greatest blessing and comfort of all,
I love you forever and more,
Eight good luck kisses for you
Say hello to Peaches and Cinnamon too.
I am happy we discussed death in your final days,
So it’s not such a haze,
But a sacred place where we have been together,
I love you, come what may be the weather.
We will always be furry soul mates,
With no hesitate.
I love you until eternity and back.
My dear Snuggles,
I am thrilled you lived to be three,
Now go and be pain free,
Play in the garden of heaven,
I would say save a place for me,
But I don’t want to tempt my fate,
I want to live to be a hundred,
Or much later.
I still have hope, optimism and positivity,
You always inspired that within me.
I love you for that and all of your amazing ways,
I love you for you, always xxxxxxxx
