I still feel ill and brokenhearted...
I have new fosters, this time females. Say hello to:
Tilia (linden tree in Latin) and Alarm
Image
Image
Alarm herself
Image
And Tilia
Image
Image

As you can see, Tilia is a sheltie-like young piggie, and Alarm is a crested piggie. Both are young, I suppose no more than two months old, and both have very soft fur. When you pet Alarm, her hair feels like cat's, black, soft, silky and shiny.

And there is a third female, this time much older one:

Image
Her name is Psotka, which means a Prank :), and she is 5 years old. She is very friendly and loves cuddling.
Image
Image
Here she is with Alarm
Image
And there are all three of them
Image
Image
Image

All three are in excellent condition, healthy and friendly. They were lucky enough to have responsible owners, who cared for them and did not abandon them. They were surrendered, because they former owners felt, for various reasons, that they could not care for them any longer.

So sorry to read of Bobcio's passing. Your new female fosters are stunning. Alarm especially reminds me of my last piggy that I lost to cancer. I love their names too.

Psotka could be called Pieszczotka, which means Cuddler :). She looks like Olga da Polga from this edition of the series:

Have you noticed that she has a funny brown spot on her otherwise black behind?

Psotka has already found a new home. Small wonder, because she is so cute and personable. Since yesterday she has been living with two young skinny girls in a great home in my city.

This is how Psotka, now Michelle, lives with her hairless "sisters", Mela and Masza.

My former fosters have found good forever homes - Tilia and Alarm, now Amber, were sent to another city, Poznań.
Let me introduce my new fosters, a young male and female, with very unimaginative names of John and Joana.
male:

female:

She is a doll! So pretty and soft. She is healthy, but thin and small for her supposed two months of age. She and her "partner", also healthy, but much better "padded", were bought in a pet shop, and well cared for by their owners, but after a month, the lady began having symptoms of severe allergy. The owners decided to surrender their guinea pigs and asked to find them new homes. That is how they came to my home.
Also, the Holiday Inn for guinea pigs opened at my place for Christmas. Besides my three own piggies and two fosters, I have two pairs of females. You have already seen them, but they were small then. Now they are almost full grown. They are Mona and Lisa, and Cookie and Muffin.

My herd is down to two. Today Kudłaty died, most probably from lymphoma. He was getting progressively sick for the last months.
These are his last pictures.

His companions were close to him for weeks. I have noticed that guinea pigs keep watch over very sick and dying friends.

The post mortem revealed that the cause of death was not lymphoma but rather nephrotic syndrom and, generally, kidney atrophy and insufficiency. The reason was, most probably, a genetic predisposition and Kudłaty's age.
