(left) and Molly (right) are the sweetest pair of sisters who we
adopted from our local Humane Society on May 1, 2006. We adopted them on
the very first day that they were at the Humane Society. What a fun
wedding anniversary gift that these girlies turned out to be!
Abby and Molly love to pose for pictures, and they are always
well-behaved little ladies for any photo shoot. When we take pictures for
the annual cavy Christmas photo card, Abby and Molly always sit prim and
proper while they watch our other cavies create mayhem! This was, of
course, from their third birthday party!
Since they live together in the same cage, Abby and Molly take turns as
to who is on "guard duty" while the other one sleeps. They both have
supersonic hearing, so one faint rustle of a salad bag or one tiny knock
on the grape bowl means that both of them will be perched on their pellet
bowl within five seconds, ready for a treat. Abby and Molly soak up all
the attention that we can give to them, and they love to sit together on
our lap. Abby's nickname is "Mop Head" for her wild coiffure that always
looks like it needs some Dippity-Do. Molly's nickname is "Slinky" because
she can stretch her own body as long as a toy Slinky, with the greatest
Abby and Molly are two perfect reasons why people should adopt their next
cavy from the Humane Society or another local shelter!
