The Tales of the Crazy Wheekerland Cavies

A couple of weeks ago I noticed Penny was missing a scrap of fur. They hadn't been fighting (they never fight) and she wasn't scratching, so I assumed that she had just gotten scratched on something. I decided to keep a close eye on her, however.
Two days ago I noticed that Bailey, too, had a scratch in same exact spot. I didn't realize it was a scratch, however, I just though his fur was fluffed up the wrong way.
Today, I looked closer at it and realized it was a V-Shaped scratch looking thing in the same exact spot as Penny's scratch. Her's, too, had obtained a V-shape.
Does anyone have any idea what this is about? I'll take some pictures in a moment.

We got them checked up on, they have lice, not mites.
Phew! I'm glad that that's it, because it will require much less treating and their first treatment is happening this weekend. Also, I don't think that lice is deadly, while mites can be.
They are at the pigsitter right now but will be home in a few days. That is where they will be getting their treatment, as the pigsitters are cavy experts.
For now, I have no pictures, but when they get home they will be having an actual photo shoot.

Don't use a pyrethrin based treatment. Be sure to use ivermectin or Revolution topically or plain Advantage.

Thanks, Lynx! I'll check with the pigsitter when we go to pick them up today to see what they used, and, if it is pyrethrin, I will use one of the other ones you mentioned for next treatment.

Penny is sticking her nose in the air like she just doesn't care- guest-starring Bailey's butt!

Bailey, taking a rest, and Penny, who was looking around like "Mommy, where's the food?"

And Penny, sniffing Bailey, who I guess smelled like carrots.

"I found it! I found the pellet noms! Bailey, c'mere!"

Lovely photos. I am impressed by their white bums. They're looking very calm in their temporary digs.

You are not allowed to use tiny urls. They change in time and pornography shows up.

I'll deactivate them. I suggest you link directly to your photo account.

What happens is after a time, the tiny urls are no longer valid and sometimes new pictures that you did NOT upload appear in their stead.

That is bad news because we've had pornography due to the tiny urls.

Flickr is what I use to host my images. It will also give you the code for forum posting to copy across.

Lovely pictures! I hope you find somewhere else to host them soon so you can show more :)
