My husband has been begging for either a rabbit or guinea pig for 10 years now, so I decided to surprise him and our son with a pair of guinea pigs for Christmas. I found them on Craigslist from someone who had gotten them this Summer and didn't have enough time for them. They are 5 and 6 month old orange females that we named Holly and Nutmeg. We also have two 7.5 year old cats, who have done great so far with them. They came with a cage similar to a Critter Nation, but I ordered the wire grids to make a C&C cage that will be here on Thursday and I've got coroplast reserved at Home Depot, so hopefully by Thursday evening they will have a new cage! A little about me: I'm a huge Harry Potter fan (hence the username), I love crafting and making art, reading, and eating sushi.

..... We can be best friends, okay? I love Harry Potter and reading and ... well, I don't like sushi, but I think it'll be fine. :)

Ha! Yes, we can lol And you just need to be introduced to good sushi. My husband was afraid of it forever and now he begs me to go to the sushi bar.

Hi (: Welcome to the forum. Do you have any photos of your guinea pigs? Harry Potter is on point and perfect.

@jrv - Cheyanne is so cute! She reminds me of our Nutmeg :)

I'll post pictures as soon as I learn how!

Here are our girls! Nutmeg is the crested and Holly is the Abyssinian.

Oh dear, I don't know how to rotate that picture to the correct orientation.
