- Hello there, this is Roo99! You can just call me Roo, my friends do. :)
I adopted 2 pigs from my local rescue, and they are very sweet. I brought them home on March 3, 2012.
I am really looking forward to getting to know some more about cavies. Here are some of my favorite YouTube channels about piggies:
I would love to have skinny pigs at some point, but there aren't any up for adoption in my area. I will NOT get any cavies from a breeder or store. They are not playthings just to buy on a whim. I respect them as loving and caring creatures; there are many who need loving homes, so why would you contribute to the overpopulation problem by supporting pet stores that sell animals? It is just wrong. Plain and simple.

- Guinea Pigs:
- 1 neutered boar named Griffin, and 1 sow named Toni. Griffin's honorary 1st birthday was March 3rd, but no one really knows his real birthdate. Toni was born on September 16, 2011.
I have been a cavy slave since spring, 2012.

Well, I just decided that I felt like writing a blog entry. I don't really pretend to be an expert at these things, but I decided to give it a go.
I have had my guinea pigs for over a year now. Griffin, my neutered boar is about 2, and Toni, my sow, is about 19 months old. After adopting them, it just seems like they've always been here.
Even though I knew the work that would be involved, I guess that I just didn't really realize the amount that it would be until I actually

I keep thinking back to when I first got the pigs, and am exceedingly overwhelmed at how quickly the time has passed. So much has happened, and I wonder; how long will it last?

The grids that I ordered to build a C&C for my piggies arrived a day early! An early birthday present for me, I suppose (my birthday is tomorrow!). Thank you Amazon!
I'm going to go make the cage. I don't have the fleece yet, but I will put some towels on top of my vinyl for now. I am SO excited! AH!

Oh goodness, was today eventful for me and the pigs! Griffin and Toni were getting dirty, so I decided that it was time for a bath. I rounded them up, put them in their carrier, and took them to the bathroom for a quick wash. There were many escape attempts that I thwarted, and in the end they were both a little miserable.
Then, I clipped their nails. It wasn't too horrible for them. Now, they are both relaxing in their little 4x2.
Today I was thinking about my dream

Wow, a lot has happened since my last post. My computer died, my air conditioning broke (and has yet to be fixed due to a rare part).
About the great computer fiasco, there isn't much to be said. I checked up here, checked my email, and went to bed. The next day, the computer was dead. I did a lot of research, and settled on a nice, blue HP netbook. I am happy with it so far, and it performs pretty nicely.
My air conditioner broke a few days ago, and a serviceman came
