Baby is my life. I got her off Craigslist for free! I was lonely and depressed and she needed a home. A lady had discovered her running from a cat in her apartment complex. The lady saved her, but could not keep her so she put an ad for a "Free guinea pig" online. I was so happy, and got her right away! Baby fills my heart with love. She goes every where I go, and she even loves riding in my truck with me.
Baby almost died this spring which scared me and caused my heart fear, but love made her better - and the vet of course. She had a bad respiratory infection, and they were not sure she would make it, but I refused give up! I spent a lot of money (so much for my "free" pet!) and time with her. I think because she could feel how much she is loved, she got well. She is a fighter like me!
Baby is funny, she will throw a temper like a 2-year-old child if I give her the "wrong" veggie. She throws down her little feet and fusses at me until I give her the one she wanted. It is funny how much persoanlity can fit in such a small, cuta package! I named her baby because I didn't know if she was a boy or a girl, but later I found out I have a baby girl! I love her so much I never leave her, she even sleeps near me.
She can't see one one side now, she somehow scratched her eye, so she only sees on one side. She gets nervous, but is getting better and
feeling more secure every day. Baby has her own baby stroller, and she loves it when I take her for walks in it! The little baby bed comes off as a carrier, too.
Baby is one tough guinea pig. She is my love, my friend, and my life!
