My name is Ashley, and my guinea pig is Hubert McGee, We live in San Ramon California. I've had Hubert since december 2005. I worked as a nanny for a single mother and her 2 young daughters, and i got Hubert from them. The family had him for less than a month and were already bored with him. They kept him in a tiny cage with no toys, and they never gave him any attention. :guilty: On Christmas Eve (2005) the family was going out of town for two weeks, i asked the mother who was going to watch the guinea pig while they were gone and she told me that they didnt need anyone to look after him as long as they gave him a lot of food and two full water bottles. I was really upset when she said that and i asked her if she would be willing to let me have him for $50. She said yes, and i took Hubert home with me that day. His life (and mine) has changed dramatically since i brought him home to live with me, at first he was really shy but now he is really vocal and loves attention (especially from my dog, Molly). I took him to the vet 2 days after i got him for a check-up, he had lice (which he got a shot for) and other than that he was totally healthy. He has a large CavyCage, tons of toys, unlimited hay, fresh food/water EVERYday, and he gets held at least once a day. I love Hubert very much and i look forward to every moment that i get to spend with him.
