So we got 2 guinea pigs on Wednesday.
Son #3 named this one Black Jack. (no he's not black... we are still wondering where the inspiration came from.. ?)
and this brown and white one- named Oreo.
My kids favorite cookies are Oreo's so.. that is fitting we have a pet named Oreo.
Son#4 loves.. loves... LOVES.. the guinea pigs and loves them a little too.. much.
He wants to hold them 24/7 and he starts off real soft... petting, stroking, petting... then it gets a little harder... patting and petting and stroking..
then squeezing and patting and poking...
(reminds me of a scene in the movie: Tommy Boy.)
So it's torture for the guinea pig when he holds them for too long.. and torture for HIM when he's not.
I know in the picture they look like big rats... ( trust me I know RATS) but their personalities are more like kittens- except not frisky. They are real snuggly and when you pet them they make these happy sounds... it's not a purr.. but a kind of hum... and these two are 6 weeks old and have been handled alot- so they don't bite like some guinea pigs. ( we babysat one a few months ago.. and if you were holding it sitting down.. you were fine.. but if you stood up.. it would bite us. )
So- overall our happiness level is a 100% .. but we haven't had to clean the cage yet.. so we'll see ... I'll report back in a few weeks and let you know.
