    Hello from Indiana

    My name is Robin and last week my husband, kids and I adopted two female guinea pigs from a local rescue. These are our first ever and we have learned so much about them already. We have named them Patches and Cuddles and so far they are warming up to us. We got a cage from the rescue and after doing some research we have found out that it is too small so we will be making a C&C cage for them.

    Hello from Indiana

    Welcome, they're absolutely adorable and I just want to cuddle them both (because I don't know which one is Cuddles). And kudos for rescuing and not buying! We around here are not fans of pet stores! You can also try and get supplies elsewhere to prevent supporting the pet stores and show them you don't support their treatment of guinea pigs.

    If you have any questions, even seemingly stupid ones, but can't find an answer, don't hesitate to ask! We're a pretty nice bunch and there are people here with tons of experience, but not so much me, I've only got a little over a year

    Patches and Cuddles are adorable! Congratulations on your new family members. They look kind of like my two in their coloring.

    What rescue did you get them from. Sure wish I had known there was a piggy rescue. I just got two babies from a shop not knowing any of this until week after I got them. And now I'm sitting here going well poo I could have saved some piggies. I'm also in your area.

    @bayni, don't feel too bad. You didn't know. Many people on this forum made the same mistake, including me, before joining. But now you know, and can help enlighten other new pig owners on the importance of adopting. That's why this forum is here, to help others understand the need for a larger cage and adopting and so on. Your pet store pigs are no less important than ones that are adopted. Most rescue pigs started out in a pet store anyway. You're just not supporting that pet store when you adopt. I don't love my two pet store girls any less than my adopted sow. They are all such great pigs. Besides, you'll have many more chances in the future to adopt. Unfortunately pigs are being dumped in shelters constantly, so there is no shortage. Don't think about where you got your pigs anymore. Just think about how much you love them anyway and want to spoil them rotten.

    @HollyLeaf thank you so much for your kind words. I have already started talking to my husband about adopting a third maybe a neutered male as soon as I can figure out where to go. The shelter around my area only has cats and dogs.
