I happened to read back through my journal last night and chanced upon the entry dated April 12th, 2003. That was the day that a certain black and white guinea pig came into my life. Skunk was a pet store purchase, at the time I didn't really think about the humane society having guinea pigs, and in a way he was somewhat of an impulse purchase. He didn't have much room at first, but I eventually found the Cavy Cages website and made my way here.
I've really learned a lot about cavies as a result of this website, and I'm thankful for all the help and advice I've gotten here. Today is Skunk's first anniversary of a whole year in my care, and I think he's better for it as a result of everything that I have learned.
So with that, I want to extend a big THANK YOU! to this wonderful website for helping me make my two pigs very spoiled indeed.
