Rosie has taken a sudden bad turn tonight. I don't know what is wrong, and I'm really freaked out. Please cross your fingers for her.
I will try & update at some point tomorrow, after our vet appointment.

Thanks all. I know it is cliche, but all day, I can't help but wonder if I made her final hours worse by trying to handfeed and water her, or if I made them better by keeping her home and giving her lots of cuddles.
She had some time with Princess as well before she went.

We've chosen not to do a necropsy, and will be burying her in the backyard when the rain stops (hopefully, tomorrow).

How is Princess doing? Stop trying to second guess yourself. She was with you at the end and certainly knew how much she was loved.

Princess, is Princess - she's not backing down on her to-human demands, but I think she misses her buddy.

So sorry to hear about your loss of Rosie. She was a lovely pig. Please don't second guess yourself as you did your best for her, and gave her wonderful life. Hugs to you and Princess.

So very sorry.
I may not have said a lot here but I always looked to see her adorableness.

Thanks again. We had a little burial for her in the yard today.
I also applied to Piggles rescue, to see if they had any singles we could potentially match with Princess.
Hopefully, we will find her a new pal.

Cross your fingers for us folks.

Edited to add: over the last few days, Princess has clearly become lonely. She's lost her wheeker, and is only eating her favourite veggies, which is causing some mushy poops. Clearly, she needs another piggy to boss around. Hopefully, Katie and Princess take to each other when they finally meet.

I am so sorry you lost your Rosie.

I am praying you get to bring Katie home!
