Welcome to our cavy chronicle.
First of all we apologize of any stylistic lapse, other mistakes, as we do speak english but not fluently.

Chrumson is our first guinea pig. Once my sister has shown me little hippo (skinny pig) i fell in love completely..
Image

After my neck (spine) surgery i knew from the begging im gonna stay at home for a long time and decision of buying guinea pig was well thought out.
Of course i have started with getting some reliable information about guinea pigs especially skinny breed.
At this point i would like to say thanks to Skinny Palace 1, who was my mentor before buying Chrumson for now on:)

C&C lack sorrow. Unfortunately here in Polnad C&C cages are not avaible, the only and best solution was to buy done cage (47 inch-120cm x 23 inch- 60cm).

Image

At first ( i think for more than two weeks) Chrumson was sad.
Image
I felt like my heart was breaking apart. We decided to buy grown skinny pig (He was year and a half) and i felt it might has been a mistake. But as i mentioted, i've watched a lot of SkinnyPigPalace1 youtube videos and knew its a matter of time.
He started to trust me excatly the SPP1 has told me:
Image

After few days we started to take him out for lap time:
Image
once you take a look in those eyes You are completely lost!

Image

Yes, we were informed from the begging that Chrumson supose to have a friend, we only have to wait untill he get older:
Image
Probably we r gonna name him Snoopy, not sure yet.

Due to lil guy is going to join our family, we had to build some larger space (in progress),
Image
when the lil one will be here, after they will get to know each other we will build 78inch per 40inch cage (polish coroplast equivalent) and probably plexa.
Enough for now.[/img]

Chrumson is an adorable guinea pig, gds!

By the way, I don't know if you have a really large, crisp image of your first photo, but I would love to have a copy in my calendar possibilities folder for next year's calendar! If you are interested, my email is:

Hello, gds! It is high time you showed your cute skinny to the world.
There are much more photos of Chrumson at Caviarnia forum. Yes, we are both from Caviarnia, and what's more, we are from the same city, Łódź. I interviewed gds to make sure she will be a good "piggy mom" when she began looking for a companion for her skinny pig. She made an application, but we don't have skinnies for adoption. And that is how I made acquaintance with gds and Chrumek, not very long time ago.
By the way, "chrumkać" is an onomatopoeic verb describing one of the sounds real pigs make - grunting or oinking, so his English name would be Oinker :).

Some very neat photos, gds! I especially like the one where he is eating some hay. The ones on the white blanket look like he is walking in snow!

I'm glad you like it.
I will try to do some more photos with different backgrounds, green one, specially for Lynx, once my model will be in good mood.
I expect hay may help;)
