sweet little girl is Merri, named because she was adopted into our
home just a few weeks before Christmas 2006. After losing one of my
guinea pigs to illness, I made a visit to an amazing guinea pig rescue
group called The Critter Connection in Durham, Connecticut. After
choosing an older pig to take home as our own, Merri's foster mom told
us about a young pig she had to separate from her piggy mom. Her mom
rejected her and little Merri had some battle scars to prove it. The
moment our family saw little Merri, it was instant "ahhhhhh..." and we
were in love! She was so small and just precious.
Today, Merri happily lives with three other piggy girls and looks like a
little football. She is the first on to run to the front of her C&C
cage the moment she hears our footsteps. She is affectionate and
cuddly, and like most guinea pigs, she loves her fresh fruits and
So, from Merri and her family, we wish everyone a MERRY everything!
