Hello everybody. I was reading through the forums here and thought it would be nice to register here since I just got guinea pigs yesterday! I have two right now. They are Texels! Yes they are both girls and really sweet. I am not holding them yet because they need to get used to the place. I have them in a 2x5 cage because I had extra grids so I might as well just make their cage bigger right? Well they seem to be getting along just fine. Here are some pictures.

I named them after goddesses. The first is Aphrodite, because she looks like she has an Afro and Aphrodite has Afro in the beginning obviously. Then the second is Athena. Well hope to meet you all. And thank you for reading! :D

They are very cute pigs! You're going to make sure you brush their fur out every day otherwise there is a big risk of getting matted.

socks Thank you!

CavyMama Yes I know. I plan to brush their fur out everyday. I just took that picture when I got home from picking them up yesterday. But then I brushed their hair. I should have brushed their hair then taken the picture. I guess I was just too excited! Thank you.

Lol! I brushed their hair out after I took the picture. I should have done it the other way around! I was just too excited!

Thank you so much! I am having a blast with my piggies! They are so much fun! Before I got them I was a volunteer for a shelter! I loved all the piggies there.

They're so pretty! I hope I can get my hands on a Texel at some point. If one shows up in a shelter, it's mine! :D

Oh! What's this? *looking at skin* I'm turning green with envy! :ohmy:

I would love to have a Texel someday. You are just so blessed.

I don't even have piggies... yet! I've been looking (not that I'm ready to adopt just now), but there isn't much in my area. Will continue looking until that beautiful day when I'm ready for piggies! :D
