Three guinea pigs. Two males, one female. FREE. FREE. FREE!
They began as feeder pigs for a friend's snake... the snake died. My husband, the animal lover, couldn't let them die. I'll admit, they're cute. But I really can't keep them. I mean, we already have a cat (excuse me, a princess of a cat) and a squirrel. (YES a real squirrel. Yes, it lives in our house. No, it doesn't live in a cage.)
Oh yeah, and last week, I came home to find 2 baby guinea pigs in one of the cages. Turns out "Eileen" wasn't a girl, after all. Fun stuff.
