I can't believe I have to write another one of these blogs. Barely a month ago my sweet old guinea pig Tater Tot passed away. This evening I received a phone call from my dad telling me that Marzipan died.
She had been in good health as far as I could tell, she was eating, and she wasn't particularly old. She did, however, have some kind of mutation from the start...her fur type was extremely unusual, and she had partial albinism. We believe that in addition to the visible mutations, Marzipan may have had some kind of heart defect or something similar. Whatever the case, she passed away peacefully, in her sleep.
Marzipan started out as a tiny little fluffball. She didn't know how exactly to eat at first, but Tater Tot taught her about the joys of strawberries and there was no turning back. Marzipan grew up to be big, strong, and the fluffiest fluffball that ever fluffed. She was always ready for a cuddle or a tasty snack. She acted as a nurse to the elderly Tater Tot, and a playmate and mother/sister to baby Onigiri. She loved to blow bubbles in her water bottle, and chew on sweaters when no one was looking.
Good bye Marzipan. You were taken from us much too soon.
I love you, and I miss you. R.I.P.
