I couldn’t resist posting a picture of our new little boy guinea pig who has joined the family this week! Horatio is 18 months old and a real little cutey pie! We’ve adopted him from North East Guinea Pig Rescue and he’s joined our 3 girls, Peppa, Petal and Amy in the pen in our utility room. I have a feeling he might make an appearance in one of the stories at some point… what do you think?
Our local guinea pig resuce, like so many others – has lots of guinea pigs in need of loving homes. There’s a list of rescues on this site. Click here if you want to find one near you.
Sadly, rescues tend to get inundated after Christmas when pets bought as presents are no longer wanted.
Please consider very carefully before committing to a pet. Children love guinea pigs, but they are not toys.
