Took in a Guinea Pig today. - November 18th 2013, 06:22 PM

She's been at the feed store for a while; and her and her cage mate looked somewhat sickly.. Well, I went to get pellets today and her original cage mate was gone, and she was still there looking much more healthy than before, and with the other, new pig they put with her was mounting her. I decided to take her. In case she may be pregnant, to get her checked up and for sure healthy, and because she has such bad overgrown nails I couldn't leave her there more! I felt like she needed a good home ASAP.

I've named her Yoshi.

Aw it's so nice of you to take in pets like that, I've been in some pet stores and just wanted to save all the animals there because they weren't being kept in very nice conditions. Sadly I can't afford to do that though :c

I hope she's healthy after her vet visit, let us know how you get on

Aww, that was very nice of you to take in a new pet! I hope she gets checked out and is in the clear from health issues.

How are the babies?

I have a guinea Pig too! His name is Wookie, do you know where the name reference is from? Guess?


Has anything happened since then?

Yoshi is super duper uber adorable

They are good! I have Dumbo still, haven't gotten an update on the two girls, boo, and actually just the other day had an update from the male I rehomed. Him and his cage mate are doing great, but sadly she's looking to rehome them due to tragedy & health. My best friend is going to be taking them though.

No, no idea! Hehe, of course I know!
Nope, nothing new and exciting! She's looking a lot better than when she was at the feed store. She just looks a lot ... cleaner and clearer; if you get me.

She's adorable! And I think it's incredibly nice of you to take pets in like that. I know she has a good home now, like she deserves. I always wanna take in pets but sadly, I can't afford them.

She's merged in with my other girls now in their C&C cage and doesn't take any of my more dominant girl's crap. No bad fights or anything, they wouldn't be housed together if it was serious, but they just both want things their way, and get pissy when either interferes. Not seeing any signs of pregnancy just yet, but it usually happens later into the 10 weeks of pregnancy. Could be soon as if I guessed by when they put the other pig in (who we are unsure if was male) and with the time I've had her she'd be just about 7 weeks along, which is when they start to get quite large - fast! Her nails also do seem to grow quite fast, especially compared to my other Guinea Pigs whose I rarely have to cut.
