View Full Version : Chester and Winston

07-19-11, 03:03 pm
Hi! I adopted two guinea pigs last week from my local animal shelter, and I am very excited to be taking care of them! Their names are Chester and Winston. Chester is named after a patriotic song written during the Revolutionary War by William Billings. Winston's name is far less regal. I had a house mate with a cat named Gilly, but I decided that Gilly looked more like a Winston. Gilly was a giant, solid cat, much like how a guinea pig is a fairly large, solid critter. Naturally, one of my guinea pigs therefore had to be named Winston.

Anyways, here are some pictures.


Winston is the black one. The cage they are in is temporary. I'm moving to a new apartment in a few weeks, and they will have a C&C cage. Conveniently, there is a store that sells coroplast only a block and a half away. Also, that lovely cubby has since been replaced by an mercifully floor-less pigloo.

Hi and welcome! Your boys are both really cute, and I love their names. I actually have a cat who is also named Winston. :)

Just out of curiosity, is that a baby pool they're currently living in?

Yep, it is a baby pool. It was very cheap! Not big enough though, but it will be ok for another 2 weeks.
