My heart is so totally broken over the loss of Gizzy and seeing how Sniper was staring at her empty cage we decided to go in search of a Guinea Pig this weekend and we found one in desperate need of a forever home!!

Please meet our new baby Abby. She is an Abby thus I named her Muis Abby - (Muis means mouse in my language cause she is small and noisy and never stops eating)

She LOVES Sniper and follows him everywhere!! Finally he found a friend that adores him back. Seeing as though Sniper is very quiet its a blessing to hear this noisy little piggy!!

So here she is

Congratulations -- she is adorable! I love her ears. I bet Gizzy is whispering secrets to her from across the Rainbow Bridge!

I love her ears.
Me too!!! They are thinner than paper but I love that one is black and one is white. Her top lip is black and the bottom one white!! She is truly adorable ....but I may be a bit bias!! heheheh

I'm so glad you got a new pig, and that she loves Sniper! Poor guy, he deserves some love after the way Gizzy treated him. If Gizzy is whispering in this new one's ear, I hope Muis Abby is ignoring her!

I am sooo with you on this one!! And Sniper is playing the role of Big Brother perfectly!! Muis Abby sleeps on top of his head...he has no choice in this matter it seems. Then if I come past the cage (which happens often) Sniper comes out for a hello then Abby will run out...see the big giant standing there with lettuce hands and run back to the other tent. Then when she comes out and Sniper has maybe moved on to one of the other tents or hiding spots and she does not see him she will stand in one spot and wheek (my hubby says she SCREAMS cause that is what it sounds like) till Sniper gives up and comes out of where ever he was in - then when she sees him she runs to him and he can go back to lazing around. It is the most adorable thing ever! He even allows her to take food right out of his mouth!! I thought for sure its going to cause a fight but he does not care! This big 900gram boar is letting a 165gram snowball walk all over him!! (Ps before anyone panics Sniper is Snipped!) So she might not love me yet as much but she sure does adore poor Sniper!!

[MENTION=11509]lissie[/MENTION] it is very hard to get photos of Muis Abby still but here are a few small ones I snapped with my cellphone:


Hey Sniper wait for me....

Hey Sniper can I squeeze in here next to you

Yip...that white dot under Sniper is indeed Abby

Sharing a bowl of Lettuce, mini corn, cucumber and pellets. I normally do not do meals like this, we are just still trying to see if there is anything Abby totally loves...so far she eats everything! But as you can see Sniper has no issue with her wanting to eat right where he is eating!

Thank you for sharing this with us. I just got in to work, as usually check up here before I start my daily work load. And this has totally made my morning because I'm still barely awake haha!!

How adorable! I love how Abby is being a little sister to Sniper. Those pictures are so sweet. Nothing ever removes the sense of loss from a furry little friend, but I truly think the best way to honor their memory is to use the loss as an opportunity to give another piggy a good home. It looks like Sniper can have a real friendship now.

What a little cutie! I'm glad you found a friend for Sniper so soon, I know how hard you said it was to find piggies in your area! Have they become more common in the last two years?
