Hello everyone,

Sorry if my English is a little bit messed up, but im from the Netherlands, so English is not my first language.

Im new here, so i thought it was a good idea to introduce myself.

Im Elvira, 21 years old and i live in Gouda, cheese city in the Netherlands.

I study animal care and i work in an animal shelter (i volunteer there). They only have cats and dogs there, no rodents so that's a pity. But i love the work anyway.

I've got 2 guinea pigs. At my family we never had guinea pigs or yes we did have some when i wasn't born yet, but my sister (who was 2 years old at the time) choked them (bij accident) to death. Its a bit sad really.

I have two merino guinea pigs. They are both sisters and almost 12 months old. Right now i have a cage from a pet store on the internet for them, but in a year or so, i'm going to move to my own appartment and then i like to have a c&c cage. It's only a little bit hard to get them here.

I really love all the pictures of the C&C cages. They are so pretty.

Beside my two guinea pics i also have two rabbits. A female and an ex-male, who i got from a shelter. They are 15 months old.

Im trying to put some pictures with this message.

If there are any questions, just ask.

Greetings Elvira

Hello and welcome!

That's so sad about your family's past pig. That's exactly why very little kids shouldn't hold living animals. :(

Anyways, your pigs and buns are adorable! Again, welcome!

Wow! Those are the prettiest pigs ever!

I think you will like this forum a lot, it is very helpful. Lot's of fun too! And some seriousness.:silly:

I once let a little kid hold my hamster, and she almost squeezed poor Weetamoo in half!
