Deploying with Americorp in June
Locate & Contact
Rehoming becauseAt the end of this June I am deploying out to Massachusetts with AmeriCorp and unfortunately I won't be allowed to take my boys with me. Can't send them home to parents due to cats in the house.
Percy and Atticus are the loves of my life and it breaks my heart that I can't take them with me.
Percy is a black and brown Abyssian just around ~10 months - 1 year old. He's definitely the aplha of the pair but also the most social. He'll come running up to the cage for petting (until he tires of it) and loves green peppers! He can be a bit of a bully though sometimes and will chatter at both humans and other guinea pigs but he's never bitten anyone. He loves to cuddle once he gets used to you and is very adventerous, he'll even lick you if you hang out with him enough!
Atticus was the second one to come home with me and is a peach/brown/white short hair. He is about the same age as Percy (both came from a store unfortunately) so their ages aren't exact. Atty, as I call him, is more timid but recently has been coming to the front of the cage and has allowed me to pet him from there. He still isn't a big fan of being out of the cage and will scratch when picked up in an attempt to flee. I'm sure with more time he'll ease into it just as he did with being pet. Atticus is a huge cuddler though once you get him out of the cage and will curl up for hours and just chill next to you. His favorite treats are either carrots or lettuce.
As a worthwhile note the two do still have spats from time to time where Percy will rumblestrut and chase Atticus and some loud teeth chattering will occur but they've never drawn blood or gotten so bad where I've needed to separate them for any lengthy period of time.
To potential adopters they will come with an 4x2 C&C grid cage with some fleece blankets, x2 houses, x2 water bottles and food bowls, a bag of food and hay (they prefer oxbow orchard grass the picky little babies), as well as an extra containment cage in case of sickness.
Adoption Fee: $50 for all of it. I'd laos like to request you meet them at least once before the last pick up just to see them and introduce yourself.
Can you SHIP?
Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.
But I want THAT one!
Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
