Disco's very cute, and very inquisitive. Apparently, he's really old too - the average lifespan of a G.P. is about 8yrs old .. I think they told us Disco is around 12 or 14! I hope we don't kill him!
Little Sweet is shyer ( except when it comes to the cat, who I think she's made friends with? ) and harder to get a pic of:
She has cataracts, despite being the 'younger' guinea pig. She's about 8, I think ?
Bob only noticed them for the first time the other day. It's easy to get tunnel-vision when you sleep on my bed all day, I guess:
As with all my cats, when i've brought home new intruders, they take it in their stride. Sure, there was an initial defiant spray on the back fence to start, but quite frankly, I think he's a bit scared of their size, and I think they know it too, and really don't give a stuff about him.
So yes, i'm now the Crazy Guinea Pig Lady - they're gorgeous and SUCH good first-pets for young children and so CUTE. They cuddle, they make cute noises, they are SO low-maintenence it's not funny, and they cut my grass and eat leftover, discarded apples. I'm in love with them!
And watching the Wonderpets takes on a whole new dimension.
