Wheek Wheek! Calling all guinea pig lovers! My name is Ginger and I'm a very nice guinea pig looking for a new home! My family is moving to Australia and it seems I can't go so now I need to find some more humans who will serve me. I'm really easygoing and don't demand much. I am partial to carrot tops and grapes and fennel fronds and I love green beans. And don't mention lettuce! I could munch on that all day. I have my own deluxe two-tier home (2x3 grid C & C cage is what it's apparently called) and I come with all bedding, play pen and lots of supplies. Anybody interested in letting me move in?
I was rescued from a shelter as a baby and have been living with my family for just over 5 years. They say we live until we're about 9 so I won't be a burden when your kids go off to college! They also say I'm very sweet...of course I am! Have you ever heard of a mean guinea pig? We're so laid back that we even let you pick us up and cuddle us, and sometimes, if it's the right time of day, we'll even reward you with a purr.
I'm pretty good-looking even if I say so myself. I'm hoping I get to attach a picture just to prove it but if it doesn't work you'll have to take my word for it. In any case I think my family could have got me at a better time of day — I mean, who likes having their photo taken when they're eating? At least I don't get those green bits stuck in my teeth like my humans do. No spinach smile from me.
So come on, is there any kind family out there who thinks they could find a spot for me in their home? I live in my current teenage human's bedroom and we've got along nicely for five years although his choice of music of late does have me cringing. What happened to Abba and the Beatles? It's all that hip hop and rap stuff now. I must be getting old...
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.
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!
