Wordless Wednesday – Tallulah Teddy

Lone-ly, Nacho, you don’t have to be lone-ly.

He misses Nutty so much already, this teddy named Tallulah is his comfort blanket. Mummy is having to make sure he eats and drinks because he is so sad he doesn’t want to himself. Poor baby

Thanks efurryone for your kind words at this tough time.

  1. Poor little Nacho, I’m sending you some cuddles.

  2. Aww hugs to sweet little Nacho and all of you. Prayers sent his way and to all of you.

  3. Poor little guy. He misses his big brother. Hang in there Nacho.

    Love and licks,

  4. Lots of love and hugs for the poor little guy…we all hate to feel lonely and sad ..it is a feeling not just for humans but for all life 😦 big hugs Nacho xxxx

  5. Poor little Nacho…..he really was quite attached to Nutty (as were all of us) – hopefully his teddy and maybe some of his “Sammy treats” will cheer him up just a bit? He must eat…..

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

    • He’s been chewing the apple sticks but not eating much else. Whee all adore those sticks. Mummy is trying to track down something similar in the UK! πŸ™‚


      • I’ve never had a problem with apple sticks (though reading up on them think I’m going to not buy them again), but there is a tiny chance apple and certain other fruit woods can be contaminated with cyanide. Willow is a safer wood chew option.

      • Whee didn’t know that. Whee usually have willow twigs but whee are way more exciteable with the apple ones. Do you think that if Mummy cut branches off the baby apple tree in the garden whee could chew on those?


      • EEEK!!! No. Green wood is ΓΌber not safe for a lot of reasons. It needs to be washed and oven dried. The chinchilla people (for whatever reason) seem to be the most fastideous about writing about this topic. A pretty good list and prep instructions are here: http://www.chinchillas2home.co.uk/safewoods.htm

      • Oooo good thing I asked. I’m a total noob about these. I was only recently introduced to wood chews!


      • Oh, and by the way, the shop associated with that link sells EXACTLY what you’re looking for: http://www.chinchillas2shop.co.uk/woodchew.htm

        They also have a pretty cool selection of other stuff.

      • Sounds good. Whee will check it out


      • Harville is currently being poster pig for treat kabob sales, chomping away behind my head. The chinchilla site sells chains and sisal, my set each have a treat kabob in their cage. A treat kabob has a fastener on one end, a long metal rod in the middle, and a screw-on bell at the other end. The idea is to stack various chew toys with holes up the metal rod and hang it somewhere.

        (As I typed this, Frederick — not wanting to be left out of whatever big brother is doing, and ever wanting to do things in his own uniquely bizarre Frederick way — came over to chew not on the toys but the metal pieces of the kabob)

        Often times they prefer to just mess with the bell and make a lot of noise, but my current set isn’t really much for being destructive hard-core chewers like some I’ve had in the past. The Wigglewhishers clan are cardboard tube ninjas…except for Harville this morning, who is doing everything in his power to be annoying to get my attention this morning by being anti-ninja and very noisy indeed.

  6. Aw….chin up, little buddy! I’m betting you’ll have a new furriend soon.
    Purrs, Sundae

  7. Poor guy, I’ sure he is wondering what happened to his friend.

  8. Poor Nacho. Sending all my thoughts and prayers your way during this awful time.

  9. Poor little piggie. 😦 hang in there. Hubby, me, Squeaks and Stevie send you and your mum prayers.

  10. Big Hugs To You ………….
    sending you tons and tons of love xxx
    C xx

  11. Poor Nacho… maybe Tallulah can tell you some nice stories from Teddy-Land?

  12. Poor Nacho,Everything will turn out ok in the end,snuggles from Speedy

  13. Teddy bears can be very good friends and very comforting. I know.

  14. It’s obvious. Once again (bittersweetly), it’s rescue time again. No better tribute to Nutty and tonic for Nacho than getting a pig in need.

    • That’s the plan. Though because Nutty was very ill before he died Nacho now has to be quarantined for a little while. The vet says he is ok and he is showing no symptoms but whee have to be careful not to bring a new piggy into an environment where he might get sick. It’s hard for Nacho but it’s best for him and his potential new furfriend


      • I guess nobody knows why Nutty isn’t with us.

      • Whee believe it was an upper respiritory infection with complications involving his heart and lungs being enlarged or damaged. Unfortunately x rays and ultrasounds were inconclusive. It just became too much for him.


      • It’s hard though, because he was almost four. Certainly not old for a guinea pig, but after three things just sometimes get more complicated than they would in a younger pig. I had a couple guys with probably scarring from respiratory infections in their youth who lived to be 6 and 7Β½, but there was always a vial of Baytril in the fridge. The vet finally just sent one home with me to treat the occasional flare ups with the instructions to call if I needed more and come in if it were really serious.

      • That’s what whee were told but then baytril stopped working, as did septrin. Zithromax was the one that got rid of it the last time but couldn’t help when he was sick again. It was a vicious URI for sure.


  15. oh sweet baby! Sending you ((((hugs)))))

  16. Oh Oh to Nacho. LOVE the name Tallulah. Sending you Lots of Golden Wednesday SMILES πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Happy BlogPaws WW. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  20. Poor little Nacho. I know it’s hard. I had to say goodbye to my canine sister Lexi almost a year ago, and I still miss her. My mommy says one day I’ll get a new sister and her name will be Tallulah. I guess she’ll sort of be my Tallulah Teddy, but she’ll be a dog. Thinking of you.

  21. Oh, I’m so sorry for you all. These pics are very sweet…sending lots and lots of love and good thoughts.

  22. Sending big hugs to Nacho.
