    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    My 3 year old has wanted a guinea pig for a few months now. Her pet rabbit died of old age and well, I didn't want another animal. Her Dad told her maybe Santa would bring her one, and I assured him he wouldn't!! WELL, I just came home with 4!!!!!!!!!!! Some people on Craigslist had them and we drove 2 hours one way and now I am covered up with guinea pigs. I let him talk me into it because they were cheap and came with a cage and all. Well the cage wasn't big enough for 1 much less 4!!! So my good deal cheap guinea pigs have ended up costing me close to $200 tonight. We have a mama and daddy, and a little sister and a little brother. I need to get rid of the two females, preferably before my dear child sees them. Anybody close need a mama and a little sister guinea pig??

    Nooooooo. I am not in peru, but I have enough animals to last a lifetime and I have a sneaking suspicion my fiance wants more chicks.

    I have to blame him. He says he buys them for me then tells me what breeds we are missing.... He wants polish, I want silkies.... But we already have 17 and are only allowed 6!
