We've been having some fun at my house lately. Peanut had $25 Chanukah gelt (money) to spend. About 3 weeks ago we went and got a guinea pig. The precious little creature snuggled right into Peanut's chest when the clerk at the pet store put him in her arms. He's calico colored, like a cat...so she named him Calico Jack ("CJ"). He was about 3-4 weeks old when we got him. I haven't had a guinea pig since I was little. I forgot how sociable they are! This silly creature has totally captivated our hearts with his squeaky, chirping ways. The third night we had him, Peanut was kind of wound up. I sent her up to her room for the night. It was 8pm. I told her she could play quietly with the guinea pig for 20 minutes and then it was bed time. I went back downstairs and lost track of time. I was on the phone. It was way too quiet upstairs!
This is what I found when I got up there!
Sweet girl fell asleep with her Calico Jack tucked under her arm! It's hard to tell from the photo, but he was not being smushed by her...he was just quietly sitting there. We've had so much fun letting him play with her old toys. We put her old "Cars" movie play rug on the floor for him and a wooden barn that my mom gave her. He loves it. He's quite the ladies man and he likes browsing on Amazon.com for interesting cage decor!
I'm posting pics of him on Facebook like he's my child! Just tickled by this little dude!
The cats have yet to see him. We have him locked in Peanut's bedroom. We're going to just keep it that way, right CJ?
