I want to ask this question to know if guinea pigs are also emotional beings to the point that they can kill themselves. I have two guinea pigs with their two little cuties. One day the two small guinea pigs got taken away from their cage. after that the mother got out of the cage and never come back (I always let them get out of their cage), after losing both her wife and two children the father guinea pig didn't eat even a single bite until he die. can someone explain what happen to my guinea pigs?

Maybe guinea pigs feel lonely about losing his loved one. Maybe they have feelings too and kinda difficult to accept they will no longer see their each other. I consider they have feelings so that it happened.

I believe that animals do wither and die when lonely. I think there are some types of birds even that have to be kept in captivity in twos because they just can't be alone and would just also die. They may be animals but i think they do experience some kind of emotion and depressions too.
