When I order a 50lb bag of pellets from the Hardware store it equals to $1.42/lb for Cavy Cuisine.
BUT I would love to get lower calcium pellets.
All you have to pay is $10 for duty?

Yup, that's what they told them. So it works out to be 111 an some change CND with the duty. I figured you would want to know because of all the stone issues. Oxbow in Alberta is about that much for 50lbs, so it doesn't matter to me now with that price.

You all remember my Reko look a likes? Well last month or so I asked the lady who makes them for the rescue if she could make me Aolani. I wasn't expecting to get it until the end of April because I wasn't able to buy it until this Thursday but the lady who runs the rescue sent it early (knowing I am "good for it") as a surprise!

I think she was confused...

Yesterday I was playing around with the light diffuser and external flash I got with my camera, wanted to see how it would take photos of finished bedding but Reko and Mojo were so cute...

Oh, that second picture is just lovely! Maybe even as a possible calendar photo?

The middle picture (your "regal man"). Oh, and add that it's a "he" and his name too (and any other details you can think of - I'll put it in my calendar possibilities folder!).

We have news in our house!

So what can I say, I really suck at fostering.

Yes you saw those right, Reko has two young wives. I had them all out for floor time to see who would get along with who. Well 20 mins of running (girls) and humping (him). Followed by popcorning by all three. I've not seen him so happy in months!

So after some thought and figuring out, we are removing the bottom cage on my cages and placing a 3'x4' with 8-10" high sides coroplast cage some time in the next few days (lots of human dr. appointments going on this weekend).

But fear not Mojo, Romeo and Aolani fans I snapped some photos of them too!

My two lovelies together:

Who is Reko's tiny wee ridgy girlfriend in the top pic? She's cute, cute, cute! He looks so content.
