I've been reading for a while, thought it was time to say hi.
I am mum to five guinea pig boars and one rabbit.
I aquired the first two pigs (Zombie and Fudge) about a year and a half
ago. And they have been the light of my life since that time.
Mid December last year I ended up with a rescued rabbit and guinea pig combo
(Morticia - the rabbit and Gomez the guinea pig) There were living
together, but outside in a garden. Inside in the house Gomez's pitiful squeals when
Morticia jumped on him got too much and I separated them, concluding who ever
thought that rabbits and pigs make good hutch buddies, must be mental or not
paying attention. Rabbit seems ok by herself she largely has the run of the
downstairs of the house. Gomez was a bit lonely on his own (although
safer). So went to the nearest guinea pig rescue place and got him a friend. A
very scruffy long haired, completely black boar called Cthulhu.
Two months ago a friend of a friend, had an unexpected delivery, two girls
one boy....I ended up with the baby boy, Grendel.
Zombie and Fudge had an amazing falling out, as the scar that is still on my
leg will atest to. So Fudge now lives alone, for a while I thought I was
going to lose him, he had a really nasty abscess and it took two operations and
lots of anti biotics to make it go away.
Cthulhu and Gomez get on great, Zombie plays with them most of the day, but
sleeps on his own at night.
Zombie did used to share with Grendel, but......there was a falling out
there too. I don't think it was Zombie's fault however. Fudge and Grendel just
insist on picking fights with everyone and are then upset and hurt when
someone else finishes the fight for them. I am trying to foster a friendship with
Grendel and Fudge but I guess it is the ginger gene....there is lots of
clicking and rumble strutting.
Gomez is tricoloured. Fudge has a ginger head and white body. Grendel is
Ginger with a dash of white on his head, Cthulhu looks like a bad toupee with
legs, Zombie is mostly grey, with a flash of ginger and white here and there
and ruby eyes.
Morticia (rabbit) is black with one white foot, and part lionhead so has a
shock of gothic hair between her ears.
and I'm Kira.....(ginger) and a slave.
