My son and I adopted two female guineas from our local shelter. We chose the name Kuma for one bc it means "bear" in Japanese and she kinda has that coloring. She has short hair. Our other one has medium hair which is gold with some white tufts. We call her Goldi, which is short for Goldirocks bc of her punk rock hair and we thought that it went well with the coloring also. Plus, it brought to mind "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", tho I said we weren't getting two more Kumas. lol Kuma was surprisingly a month pregnant when we took her home. Of course we just thought maybe we were feeding her too much. We found out one morning, after she'd been totally obnoxious, when we found three little heads peeking out of the hut. Jet was a male with jet black hair. Lil Bit was female and kind of the runt. And Spike was a male with the same punk rock hair as Goldie. We ended up taking Jet tot he shelter where we got his mom bc he was starting fights with his brother and drew blood. The other two we found a wonderful home for. The owner works at PetSmart and had decided to start up her Guinea Pig rescue again. Instead of a cage inside, they would be receiving a dog kennel to run around in outside. I might brag some more later, but have come to know them rather well if anyone has questions about theirs.
