The guinea pigs are here!!

I know, i know...another post about the piggies. But really it's pretty much what my day consisted of! Going to get them on the other side of town, bringing them home with all their gear, getting them moved in, cleaning up their cage etc, having to go out to Petsmart to buy them a new water bottle/chewy logs and some vitamin c drops, and then just observing/petting/feeding them!
And i'm glad that i spent so much time observing them, as i realized that Princess wasn't easily able to get to the upper level to get food..she seemed almost afraid..or maybe she's just really too fat to get up there..she's REALLY fat in the midsection. So I gave her a ceramic dish of food in the lower level and man did she go to town on it!! So i made sure to put some special treats on the upper lever just for Cocoa, as she seems to be the timid shy girl who's last to the food.
* Oh and sidenote: when you bring home a new guinea pig put it straight into the cage, and DON'T let it play out in their playpen...lets just say i had to clean up 2 pee accidents!! *

Anywho..here's some more pics!


I promise i'll write about something different tomorrow! :)

  3. I've never been interested in guinea pigs but I have this desire to own a pot-bellied pig! Weird huh? Yet I hear they are very clean and can be trained to use cat litter. Hubby is a no go on this one though. Still working on it :)
