I thought I would do a couple of layouts of our two little Guinea Pigs. They are pretty cute and funny little things! They have both now started giving me kisses when I hold them, it is rather cute! Of course they are meant to be Jasmine’s Guinea Pigs, but of course I am the one doing the majority of the feeding and cuddling. I draw the line at cleaning the cage, that is Jasmine’s job! It seems no-one else in this house is capable of getting more than a few blades of grass for them to eat. They eat a LOT of grass and a tiny handful just doesn’t cut it. Working on that one!
My favourite thing is when they Pop. Popping is when they jump around the cage when they are happy. The first time I saw Coco do it I thought she was having some kind of seizure! LOL They most often pop when they get fresh grass or after they have had cuddles with us.
Here is our eldest Coco, at approx 4.5months.
Little Pepper is around 4mths and pregnant! We got her from Jasmine’s school friend who has guinea pigs. They didn’t know you need to separate males at 21 days and girls can get pregnant from 4-5wks. Well our little Pepper came to us pregnant by either her Daddy or Brother. Oh dear! It is not unusual for boys to impregnate their mothers due to owners not realising how soon they can procreate.
She is due any day now, and I can only hope that all her babies are born healthy and she has a smooth delivery. Her current nickname is Fatty Boom Baa, because her poor little belly is just sooo big! I think there might be two or three in there.
I just have to include this comparison shot of her belly. Poor little thing. Not fair for a baby to be having babies!
