Last Thursday we thought we would be nice and let our 2 guinea pigs outside on a patch of dry grass (it was very snowy). We just set their hut down without a fence or anything, suspecting that they wouldn't go anywhere because of the snow. Our mistake! We forgot we had let them out and when we came back (it was dark outside) they were not in their hut. We found the little white one (McFlurry) under his outdoor cage but couldn't find the black and brown one (Patches). We looked until our hands almost froze off but couldn't find him. We searched the next morning without luck. Today my mom and I were playing volleyball outside when I saw a clump of fur out of the corner of my eye. I realized it wasn't a clump of fur, but Patches! I yelled "Patches!!!" And we ran and picked him up. He did not try to escape us like usual. He seems very tired and weak. He is obviously dehydrated and malnourished. The fur around his eyes is matted together with eye goop like his eyes have been watering. We have given him water, veggies, and food. I don't know if he's been eating it. Does anyone know what I should do for him? Is there anything special we should do? Help! I'm so surprised he survived. It's a miracle!
