adopted Penny from the SPCA six months ago after losing another of my
guinea pigs to cancer. I went to the SPCA with the intention of "just
looking," but when I saw her I fell in love with her. I couldn't believe
how tame she was too. Not at all afraid of a stranger picking her up.
I had to take her home with me. She was wet and matted when I got her
home but after a bath and a haircut she was as good as new. When I
finally introduced her to my other three pigs I couldn't believe how
well it went. She fit in immediately with no squabbles at all. She is
such a docile little pig.
Penny is my first long-haired guinea pig and
everyone always comments on how pretty she is. Even people who never
much liked guinea pigs before, seem to really take a liking to her.
Her long hair takes some work as it requires regular brushing and
trimming but I don't mind, since I love her to pieces.
