It's been quite some time since any pets appeared on my blog. I don't think you've met Kiwi and Lavender, our sweet Guinea Pigs. Aren't they cute?
They've only been members of our family since early August. Kiwi is the color of her name and Lavender is more reddish. One of our neighbors says they look like Corgis with their round bodies and short legs. Normally, these cuties are in a larger cage inside our home, but when it's being cleaned, they are outside in this little play pen. I move it to a different spot each time, so there is always something nice to forage.
Like any member of the rodent family, Guinea Pig teeth do not stop growing. Constantly chewing keeps their incisors worn to a healthy level. Not only are they fed pellets and Timothy hay, they also get lots of fresh vegetables each day. While outside, our piglets seem to enjoy grazing on whatever lands in their play pen and stretching out in cool the grass. I have a canvas cover for their play pen, which Handsome Husband says looks like a circus tent. 'Seems appropriate for our house!
