The Guinea Pigs.Here are my Guinea Pigs. They are my only non exotics, but in many ways are my favorites as they're always around to say hi and scrounge some food. The two boys came to me with ringworm which resulted in them needing antifungals and baths for 6 weeks and the whole house going into quarantine. When they reached adulthood they decided that they hated each other resulting in another trip to the vets, and having to be kept separately. Left on his own Charm got quite depressed and Smudge was bought as a friend for him. Luckily we had had both of the boys neutered to try and calm them down. This was bad advice but it had the side effect that they could have girlfriends. I would strongly recommend this for all boars - they really don't like other boars much but are very sad kept on their own. Although Truffle was more confident quite liked human company, when we were told about a female sheltie in a rescue that had been neglected and had to have all her fur clipped off to get rid of the matts we decided to take her. She was called Angel Cakes by her previous owners - she's a sweetie pie and I have nicknamed her Farrah because of her 70s haircut.
Smudge as a baby - RIP
Truffle - R.I.P
