Our friend at the feed store had a pair of guinea pigs… and one passed away.
Her piggy that was left was sad. And just mopey. So she asked us if they might want her single guinea pig girl for our single guinea pig girl, Sweetie! How could we say no?
And she came with a lovely nice cage… We said sure, as long as our piggy got along with her. So we brought Caramel home. And set up the big cage and then introduced the two ladies…
As you can see, they got along famously. Even the kitties were amazed at the lovely friendship that has developed. We thought we were done with little rodents, being that my girl children are both in their twenties now, but I guess that guinea pig ownership has no limits!
I have to admit, they are adorable and they are fun to talk to and give little kitchen treats.
And it’s so nice that they have friends for their lives now. I think Sweetie is very happy to have someone to snuggle with and groom. It’s important for guinea pigs to have friends because they are herd animals. It’s just makes things good for them. And it’s not that much harder to take care of two piggies as it is to take care of just one.
