Mildred, I have a special place in my heart for white piggies too. I do not understand why some people do not like them.
Where were we? Oh, I think it is Pearls turn to tell her story.
Hello, my name is Pearl. I am a ... Well, no one is sure just what I am. Momma calls me her beautiful mutt.
She loves my crazy hair.
In the beginning, I was very quiet and very shy. I liked to hide alot.
I am much more comfortable now. I have a big new cage with lots of soft places to sleep and
a new roommate that I love.
Izzy shares her nap spots with me and her favorite snacks.
I think I am going to have a great life here.
I also want to say thank you. Everyone on this forum has been very welcoming. Thank you very much for that.
I think Pearl is gorgeous too but I am biased. Her hair is very soft and fine and she gets these long random wispy pieces that I trim. I love how she has filled out also. She was very skinny when I first brought her home.
Serelixyue, I am in awe of your glamorous long haired piggies. Izzy has every right to glare at me. This is her latest bad haircut and I really butchered it again. Poor thing. She has not forgiven me yet. I really need to improve my skills or retire my scissors.
The vet did not find anything wrong with her but I was handfeeding her because she was not eating much. She would eat small amounts of pellets and veggies. She stopped eating hay all together but she was eating the critical care like it was a special treat.
I really thought she was going to make it. I was holding her against my neck and was just chatting with her and telling her that she needed to stop being so stubborn about everything when she just passed away. She was there with me and then she was just gone. I am still shocked.
I do not know how to explain this. Lulu was not my first guinea pig but she was the first one who taught me how amazing guinea pigs are. I was not a good caregiver to the guinea pigs of my childhood. I knew nothing about proper housing or nutrition or that they needed a friend. Lulu leaped into my heart and changed it forever. She showed me what a joyous thing it was to have these amazing animals in my life.
Rest in peace my spunky girl.
