Free young guinea pig (Marlborough)
If you have someone that would like a guinea pig I have a young male that was borne in January of this year. I just purchased him and I didn't realize how much care he would need. He seems to like to sit on my lap. I have to catch him first. He makes quiet chirping sounds when I pet him while on my lap and he is very vocal about needing to get back into his cage to go to the bathroom. He is all black.
I spent $147.00 for everything but I will give him and everything he needs away for free to a good home.
And yes, I saw these babies, too...so adorable!! However, I was going to ask someone here...it seems they are listed by a breeder? Does anyone know New Hampshire Feathers Fluff n Stuff? Associated with the phone number they list. FB page: https://www.facebook.com/New-Hampshire-Feathers-Fluff-n-Stuf ... ab=page_info

D&T, again, thanks for contacting the CL poster.
If you're up for it -- check the CL that covers this area periodically. Just keep an eye out, if you're able to. My gut hunch is that little black pig is some kid's Easter present, and may very well reappear on CL in a few weeks.
I did get a couple of emails from this piggie's former Mom (She misses him. He went to a teenager, whose eyes lit up when seeing him. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a loving bond and good care for him, with the help of her parents. I did suggest former owner possibly be in touch over this week to see how things are going. She did seem okay with this girl taking him home, though she had almost wanted to change her mind as he seemed suddenly more bonded with her (former owner).) Thought you and others would be interested in knowing.

Pigs can get along fine with other pets if the right precautions are taken. I'm not necessarily foreseeing disaster. Just ... keep an eye out.
Thanks so much for following up.
If the former owner can check in with her (if she is willing), it may be helpful for both of them with this adjustment. I am not sure there is another pig in the picture to be a companion.
The smell of other animals is a possibility. I was also thinking just the fact the teenager is someone new may have been enough for piggie to go back into Mom's arms, because Mom is the only familiar one and given the choice of the two, the likely protector. They often show similar behaviour when at veterinary office or exposed to new conditions.
Will see if we can make more progress with it.
To catch a couple of winks now, up in an hour for feeding. Hope you sleep, too!
