About Shelbz
Biography:
I'm a 21 year-old new cavy owner living in the North-East of England, trying to do what's right for my piggies while studying frantically for the final year in my English Literature & Language degree. The piggies were a surprise, but I'm determined to be a responsible and loving owner!

While the twain are having fun in floor time, I like to play Xbox games, read the odd book, and have the occasional drink with my friends. I'm also a sucker for the Game of Thrones series...
Location:
North-East England
Guinea Pigs:
My little family consists of two male piggies: Bert, a Silkie cross, and Ernie a blonde Abyssinian/longhaired cross. :-)
My Cage:
2 x 4 CC Cage with 2 x 1 loft area.
My Cage Specs:
C&C Cage, 2x4, Meet or exceed recommended sizes (see www.CavyCages.com)

This approach has been pretty successful. Be it a sneeze, popcorning, wheeking, eating too little, drinking too much- all of these behaviours can be read about, and explained.

The Literature Piggies [ie. Bert + Ernie]

by Shelbz on 09-08-13 at 02:24 pm
On the 2nd July 2013, I was given an amazing gift (the best gift ever, in fact): a cardboard box.
