Kind: Crested, Ridgeback Guinea Pig

   Hello my name is Honey. Sadly I am no longer amongst the living, but mummy knows I am now a little guinea pig angel. I originally belong to a rat breeder who was finding good homes for all her other animals so she could focus on her rats. Mummy never intended to get me because she had quite a few guinea pigs already, but she feel in love with me and had to take me home. Mummy's favorite guinea pig Womby had recently died, so I helped fill that void.

    I ate heaps but I stayed a very small guinea pig, as my parents were also very small. I had some babies which turned out to be so cute that they were snapped up straight away, and all got good homes. My husband belonged to my mummy's cousin, and I was very sad when he went away, I sulked a lot. His name was Rex.

    I lived to be around four, although I always looked like a baby, and mummy says that is what made me special.

   Honey, you will be missed. OXOX - Mummy
