My husband and I have to relocate to Richland, WA from LA in August. He has a job that will start around then, but he won't see a decent paycheck until October. I haven't started my job hunt, yet, but I'm about to. Until we get on our feet there, we will be living with my parents. My mom has made it clear that our guinea pigs will not be allowed in the house, period, due to allergies (which, unfortunately, is fair). There's the back story. Here are our options, as I can see them, and they all suck:
- My mom suggested they live in the garage. The garage has absolutely no climate controls, and August is going to be hot.
- An outdoor hutch-type situation. Again, August is going to be hot. And neighborhood cats. And coyotes. Etc.
- We might be able to temporarily leave them with my in-laws here in LA, but they're planning on moving out of state around the same time we are.
- Rehoming (I'm only listing it because it's a logical option, but no. Just no. My boys are family. This would be an absolute last resort.)
