This little piggy….

Once upon a time there was a lovely woman who live in a small house, with a lovely husband and lovely kids. One day she walked into a pet store and her life has never been the same again.

Being a cavy slave has been enriching but hard. Guinea pigs are not like hamsters or gerbils, but more like a cat or dog when it comes to personality! Life will never be the same, so with out further ado, here they are:


Approx. Age: 5 years
Sex: Female
Adoption date: September 27 2009
Eve is a very friendly guinea pig always cuddling when out. She allows my kids to pet her while in the cage. She is our fatso, weighing in at 1200g she loves to eat. Eve can see very little as she has cataracts, she also has a limp due to arthritis in her left front paw.


Approx. Age: 2 years
Sex: Female
Adoption date: October 9 2008
Clover was my first guinea pig gal, before her I fostered boys for a small animal rescue. She is top pig and will let anyone know it. She is also a mother. While away for holidays our pig sitter put our foster boys in with out girls when they cleaned out cages. Clover ended up having three pups.

Clover was adopted from PetSmart after her first owners had brought her back with head trauma and a broken back leg. She ended going in for surgery to have her leg fixed and than we adopted her.


Approx. Age: 1 years 11 months old
Sex: Female
Adoption date: November 29 2008
Yaya came from us from PetSmart as a cage mate for Clover. At that time I fostered but no shelters had females. Yaya is my Diva. She hates to be picked up and has bitten my nose when I’ve given her kisses. She is has never liked to snuggle. But even after all this I still love her.


Approx. Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Adoption date: Born in my house Aug. 4 2009
Buttercup is going to be the next in line for being boss. She loves to push everyone around, but mostly her favorite pig to boss around is her twin sister Pixie. Buttercup has pretty pink eyes and loves her cuddle cups and cozies.


Approx. Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Adoption date: Born in my home Aug 4 2009
Pixie is the bottom pig, but that doesn’t stop her from being the silliest piggy in the group. She has a popcorn and run around time every night at around 8. During this time she popcorns madly and runs around the cage like a mad pig. She is also the first pig to learn to come and stand on the side of the cage for treats.


Approx. Age: 4 years
Sex: Female
Adoption date: August 17 2010
SweetPea, as her name suggests, is a very sweet pig. While on the chubby side, she loves to have attention. She is still getting to know the herd but is quite happy. She had mites when we first adopted her, and has since made a great recovery. She loves to popcorn with Pixie.


Approx. Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Adoption date: August 4 2009
Mojo is my pancake boy. He is not fixed there for he doesn’t live with the girls but in a nice big 2×3 C&C cage in my daughters room. He loves getting scratches and pets. Hes a big boy and knows it.
