I posted about my neurological guinea pig on another thread. But, it made me wonder... who else is a guinea pig slave? I have three.
First I found Clementine at PetCo in March 2009. She was a little black abby and I fell in love with her. I knew nothing about guinea pigs, but I brought her home. Soon, I learned that she would do best with a friend. So, I set off to adopt her a friend. My local rescues were not all that helpful, so I went to CL looking for "accidents". I found a little orange abby about 45 miles north of me who was a few months younger than Clementine. She was part of an accidental litter. I went and got her the next day.
I named her Odette (after the Swan Princess movie, which was my favorite as a child).
Three years have passed and this past weekend my guinea pig family expanded with the addition of my little rescue Indiana (named after Indiana Jones, yes she's a girl). She is a tortoise shell American. She's a special needs pig, but we're already getting to know each other and work around her issues.
That's my guinea pig family. Lets hear about yours.
