In December of 2002, my friend's guinea pig, Cilly, gave birth to four beautiful pups. I had just gotten over the loss of my hamster, and I decided to adopt one of the pups once they were old enough. I fell in love with a tortoiseshell and white whom they named Calico. In January, I took her home and renamed her Queen. I didn't know much about guinea pigs, so I went online and found three superb info websites/forums. I learned so much about guinea pigs, and I found that I was doing a lot of things wrong! I built Queen a C&C cage, and decided to adopt her a pal.
My friend still had two of the babies (now a year and a half), and I said I would adopt one. I adopted Lola, a skittish gold and white piggy. She's warmed up to me nicely, and after a few days of "ice breaking", the pair of sisters are doing great! I've had them together now for about a month, and they're doing just fine.
