I have 4 right now - 2 males and 2 females. 1 female is an American red, the 2 boys are also American but they are white, black and red, and the other female is a red Abby. All of them are so sweet!
I started with 1 in July and as is the norm by the end of July I had 3 more! I am sooo addicted to them! I would LOVE to be a foster mommy too.
I really would have to do some major begging and pleading with my husband. He told me after we got the last 2 that we weren't going to get more, but he has really fallen in love with them (no surprise there! :) ) so I may be able to convince him!!
Erin, if you read this, you can mark Rufus as "adopted." He went to a good home that already had another male Guinea pig.
Minnie and Little Red have an adoption pending. As do Daisy and Clementine.
I might even have a very special adopter for Scruffy (fingers crossed). She went to the vet today and is looking very healthy and gaining more weight. The vet declared her "ready for adoption." It will break my heart to part with her. She has been such a little angel.
I've become quite attached to the little rugrat -- and I wouldn't feel good about her going to any other home. Cordelia has piggie heaven at her place. She has 5 girls (i.e. princesses) that live free range in the living room and are only put in their cage at night. They sleep in velvet cozies and are fed with silver spoons (okay, I made up the part about the spoons).
Erin, I will send you an "after" picture to post beside Scruffy's original photo so you can see how beautiful she's become.
