The wait is over, we have been approved by the shelter to adopt our first cavy.

The cage is ready, found some good oxbow hay and pellets and have everything but the fleece bedding set up.

We have to wait until she can get ride to a shelter near us because she is 2 hours away.

Here is her petfinder photo (broken link removed)

So here are my questions....

What do I bring her home in, will the SPCA have her in a box?
What do I do with her when she first gets home, do I feed her, leave her alone, cuddle with her???
 
You could ask if they have something for her. If you don't know I would bring a carrier just in case (cat carrier works great).

When you first bring her home I would leave her in the cage for 24 hours so she can get used to her new surroundings. Make sure she has fresh food and water.
 
She is so cute! Congratulations!
