I guess the infection was too widespread, too much for him to handle. I wished he'd let me know about it earlier, we would have stood a better chance.
...Or so I thought. Kokiri was a skinny, oddly-proportioned guinea pig. He didn't have the typical oval/egg shape that guinea pigs have. Even after he grew to full size, he was kind of long and thin, with one ear that stuck up.
He also had this odd way of looking right at you, while at the same time his eyes were looking behind him. That was the usual look on his little piggy face.
Kokiri also had this way of getting comfortable in very odd positions, in which he curled up or almost folded himself in half.
Kokiri's most notable tribute was his adorable pink nose.
He was such a friendly little guy. He never showed any fear, and would walk right up to you so you could pet him. Kokiri wasn't much of a squeaker, but he was notorious for chewing his choroplast.
I had to make a custom plushie of my Kokiri. I took some pics of him with his favorite treats, carrots and oranges. I just had to give him that silly look on his face when he looks like he's not looking at you.
I'll miss you so much Kokiri, you and your pink nose and white feet and your wonderful personality. Rest in peace, my beloved little friend.
