Timed out

See Teepee Pompom’s profile

See all her post stories

At about 11 am today, Teepee Pompom joined her hubby Ispidbol with the rest of their departed family members.

It was her time.

Etymology of name: native American Indian tent + appearance

Gender: female

Color: white

Parentage: Mochawonka the “wiggler” + Isnohontas Kotonbol

Generation: 5th

Litter group: PanapanaIIgang. This is an unexpected litter. The Panapanagang (their young parents) were not separated until after more than 40 days from birth enabling the mating of the young pair. Only two (2) of the resulting six (6) cubs survived.

Spouse: Ispidbol

Lifespan: 23 months 6 days

Cause of death: probably digestive tract illness due to old age

Bitin ba? Dito may kumpleto (music and lyrics). ► Grave robber

Traits and characteristics: Round and fluffy (like Isnowitwit her grandmother); has a peculiar tail but Teepee’s is pointed forward. She is a very vocal female, quite the grumpy and bitey type, who refuses to be handled except when she’s in heat. Gnaws the woodwork of any cage – even the exercise wheels were not spared. A habitual sleeper under her bedsheets.

At 22 months 22 days, she saw the installation of the Snowy-Teepee clock on Ikabod tower. Her last visit on the tower deck was taken six days before she passed away.

Her greatgrand-aunt Snowy (3rd batch, 2nd generation), from whom the tower clock was first named, was the first white female raised in the family. Teepee was the fifth and the last.

Human, hammie trivia(?) :

God is the Creator of both, but only humans can call Him a Father. God-and-animal is limited to a Creator-creature relationship. God-and-man can go beyond that. There can be a personal relationship.

Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12)

When an animal dies, its time ceases. When a man dies, his time continues (see Luke 16:19-31 for a story).

Is God your Father? Or is He your Creator only ? You cannot be a child of God unless you receive His Son as your Savior.

It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth… Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.

– Acts 4:10, 12

  4. Tito,

    Tito Arleen😎 : Probably…
    Uuwi daw yata kasi sa pasko ang lahat ng Tito mo.
    Pero bago magpasko, mauuna pa berdey mo…😛

    ————————————————

    Itay: Oo anak… dalawang taon lang mahigit.
    Pag medyo mahina-hina pa ang naturalesa dahil inbred sila, hindi na umaabot ng dalawang taon. Depende rin siguro sa klima ng lugar? Bago matapos ang taong ito, apat pa yung matatandaang namumuro na.

    Ahehe, genuiea pigs ang mas mahaba-haba lifespan…
    O kaya yung sabi nung isang pamangkin ko na yun na lang

  7. Tito, d ko lang po alam kung dito pa ako sa Pasko. May pending Singapore OJT ako. Kung matuloy at kayanin, bili na lang ako ng round trip ticket for the christmas.

    Tito Arleen😎 : Ganun ba… sige.
    Peak season, anhirap na naman siguro bumiyahe nun…
    Kaso no choice, yun lang ang common time ng mga nasa abroad.

  8. waa.. kakalungkot naman.. pero mas nagtagal pa sya kesa sa pet kong si seiko.

    ————————————————

    Kuya Teddy Bear: Kakalungkot nga din.😦
    Sabagay, expected ko na naman si Teepee… hindi paris nung mga nauna na napaaga dahil nagkasakit, o kaya na-trauma sa init dito sa loob ng bahay, o kaya dahil sa panganganak.

    Iba talaga ang may pet, ano? Kaya lang pag busy tayo,
    nakaka-guilty din pag hindi natin sila masyado maasikaso.
    Kaya hindi rin ako makaalis ng bahay for more than two days, hindi ko sila maiwan – ang init kaya dito sa loob pag sarado
    ang pinto at naka-off ang mga electric fan.

    Walo pa sila lahat ngayon, hindi ko pwede dalhin lahat
    paris nung ginagawa ko nuon kina Bitoy at Boromir
    kahit saan kami magpunta ni misis.🙂

  9. 😦

    wala na si ka-nickname..

    … dati nagkaron ako ng science project turned pet na si “parokya ni edgar/chito/vinchi” (yup.. marami po syangpanagaln.. chumy gusto ng kascience buddy ko pero di ako pumayag.. haha!) namatay sya after mga one month.. guinea pig pala sya.. malumgkot dinm yun..

    namiss ko po blog nyo..

    God bless po!

    ————————————————

    HomebodyKuya: Nagkasakit si Teepee kaya hindi na
    umabot ng dalawang taon.

    Yung guinea pig mo, nagkasakit din siguro, o kaya matanda na, kaya namatay agad? Nag-alaga rin ako ng guinea pigs nung 13 to about 15 years old ako… ang saya!!!

    Primero, isang paris lang — akala namin parehong lalaki,
    kaya tinawag kong “Botyok” at “James” base dun sa sineng “James Wong” na si Chiquito ang starring!😆
    (Tanong mo kay Dad at Mom mo, kilala nila si Chiquito)

    Na-kidnap ng pusa si Botyok, kaya antagal na walang kasama
    si James… Kalaunan, may nagbigay sa amin ng lalaking albino. Nung una nga hindi makalapit sa daga namin dahil inaaway sya ni James (babae pala!)

    Dumami sila😀 umabot yata ng mahigit 21 ang dagang
    kosta ko (dagang kosta ang tawag namin sa kanila nuon) —
    Ipinamimigay namin ang ibang anak sa mga may gustong mag-alaga.

    Ginawan ng tito ko ang buong pamilya ng bahay nila;
    ako naman, ginawan ko sila ng sasakyan!😀
    Maski si Datu Puti (the albino hubby) ang pinakasiga sa
    buong tropa, kay wifey James, ander pa rin sya.😆

    Eka nila pag tatawagin ko (lalo na kung gutom) :

    Wik! Wordit–wordit–wordit!😀

    Kalaunan, isa-isa rin silang namayapa…
    Ang pinakahuling naiwan? Yun ding kaunaunahan –
    Lola James” ang pinakahuli nyang naging pangalan.😆

    God bless, ading.
    (Papadalang na rin akong maghaharap sa computer ngayon)
