two new furry friends have joined the family
When I was little, I had a pet guinea pig named Tootsie. She and I didn't always get on very well, but as an adult, I've been wanting a guinea pig for a while now. I've looked into adopting one or more, but I've been apprehensive about finding one with a good temperament.
Then a friend of ours mentioned that their family had two guinea pigs and they weren't 100% sure that they wanted to keep them. But they wanted to know that they would go to a good home. Knowing the background of these little cuties, I jumped at it!
So, they came to live at my house this weekend, and my brothers and sister and I chose some new names for them, and we've been giving them lots of snuggles!
This is Captain Cuddles. She is the calm one. She enjoys being held, but also likes to hide away in her plastic igloo (which we're calling The Captain's Quarters). Captain Cuddles is much lighter than her friend, and you'll soon hear why.
Lt. Nibbles loves to eat. Like, a lot. She is most likely to be spotted at the food bowl or munching on some hay. When it's time for their special carrot snack, Lt. Nibbles often steals the The Captain's carrot. She fidgets some while being held, but still seems to like it!
I just love their sweet faces. How could I not? But I'm trying now to become too obsessed with them. (Ha!) That said, there's a very real chance that you'll see some guinea pig pics and maybe even some projects inspired by these furbabies!
