Here's one for ya.
Trying to find a home for Jojo, the baby guinea a while back. Now, a lady emailed me, and said she would LOVE him!! We waited an hour in EDMONTON aka after driving an hour and some there, for her. She messaged back saying her "daughter was hit by a car." No biggy, right? Poor girl, right? WRONG. The day before, my friend who had rescued 2 male guineas got an email from a kijiji person who also bailed - saying her "MOTHER was hit by a car". Coincidence? ehhh...well we found better and different homes for those guineas.
Come to today! I get an email about the guinea... I recognize the email, ask if they had gotten a guinea from me before...no? ok.... Checked my sent box, and lo' and behold I find the old messages about Jojo. Talked to my friend, told her the lady's name, and the email AND BOTH OF US HAD BEEN CONTACTED ABOUT OUR GUINEAS BY THE SAME PERSON BEFORE! >:( That's right her mother or daughter or BRAIN got hit by a car. And so I emailed the "free guinea pigs" on kijiji in my area, warning about her, and saying to be SUPER careful who gets them!
That women is red flagged by me for sure, we won't deal with her, talk to her, or anything! We don't know if she just likes toying with people, feeds the guineas to a snake or something, slaughters them, drowns them, abandons them, abuses them... Who knows? I DON'T want to know. But she is NEVER getting my guinea piggies, or my friend's!!
Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.
You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
