^ This is Flossy. She is my little guinea pig and she is the size of a big hamster or a mouse (like her brother, but we'll get to him just now). She's so sweet and she's the biggest out of the two. We reckon her favourite is her dad, because she is always following him where ever he goes.
^ Here is her brother, Pete. He's just the right size to hold in your hand (like his sister) and he is gentle and meek (compared to his sister). But Pete was born disfigured - he has a twisted paw and a leg that is too short, plus an eye that is always closed. He still walks and runs and follows his mom. We love him very much and he is a special pet.
^ The two siblings cuddling together on Grace's hand...
^ Now, here is the big daddy, Caramel. He likes to sit on our laps (if you are feeding him his favourite, lettuce) and he is very energetic. The pups love him (especially Flossy) and we do, too.
^ Last of all, but certainly not least, Finella, the mom. Every now and then she nips and she doesn't like us very much, but the family just wouldn't seem right without this darling character, who cares for her kids.
We are all so glad to have such wonderful pets that God gave to us to look after!
I hope you enjoy the pictures! Have any of you had guinea pigs before?
