Oneida Guinea Pigs

Sorry about the title, just trying to get more search engine traffic.

Yesterday we adopted out Peaches and Cream and I almost cried- they are such sweet girls but I'm sure they are going to a great home, the people were really nice and animal friendly.

We adopted out sweet pea and snickerdoodle too, but they were back this morning. It seemed that the other guinea pig they were to live with was not done with grieving her previous cage mate- poor baby. She was beautiful though, I would have taken her in and kept her :)

We have a lot of males available for adoption- some pairs and we are going to post two more that haven't been seen yet. These guys are so lovable. Lax and Mittens, two Americans that are nice and big and spoiled and a bit dominant, but have adjusted well to being with us. You can tell by watching them that they miss their owners- atleast Lax does so we handle him very often.

Penny is one of our own guinea pigs that we decided to keep from someone who was just looking for a good home for them. She has two abscesses and we took her to the vet the other day to the tune of $152. They are a great exotics vet though and come highly recommended. Then after we got home I left one of her meds out all night- what was I thinking? Grr... luckily the vet was great about it and someone donated some meds for us to use- How awesome Village Vet!

We may have to take her back though if the antibiotics don't help. But I think all will work out- she will be fine and she's still eating like a piggie.

Also, our pregnant guinea pig is still pregnant and HUGE, she barely fits in her pigloo now and I just feel so bad for her. I feel the babies kicking in there like crazy and wish they would come out and give her a break. I've been wanting to call her Sarah, she's just so lovely. I will be posting lots of pics once the babies show.

That all said, if you know someone who wants to adopt a male piggie, please send them this way.

Guinea Pigs are very social animals. If you are considering adopting one, please consider having more than one for improved health and personality.
