    OK I could not help myself, I have been walking by the guinea pigs looking everytime I go to the pet store for feeder fish. I always stop to look thinking someday Ill get one. Well Today I seen the cutest little pig ever, I just love the streak of white down hi/her face. So I brought her home.

    Hubby was home when I got here, I pulled her out of my pocket and looked surprised, "How in the world did that get there" I asked [​IMG]

    I later cought him peting her and talking to her [​IMG]

    Anyway, thought I would share. By the way how do you sex these little guys?

    Shhh dont tell but Im hoping to get her a friend next week [​IMG]

    She's very cute! I know nothing about them other than they're furry and they're sold next to rodents.

    awww, what a cutie!!! Looks like a little Satin(maybe, looks pretty shiny) American, I love the colors. Here is a link to a site with info on sexing babies:http://www.guinealynx.info/sexing_pups.html

    after you figure out what sex it is I agree the same sex buddy should magically appear in the cage soon [​IMG]

    she is beautiful! i had wanted a guinea pig, parents said no. there is a guinea pig forum though, everyone is really helpful on there. it was branched of a C&C cage website, but i can't remember the address right now. i haven't been on in so long.
