I have a guinea pig, Snickers!
Thank you all so much to those who replied to my thread about the loss of my pet hamster, Cashmere. I adopted a pet guinea pig, Snickers from a different pet store in January, and he is the apple of my eye! He is an orangish brown, like the caramel in Snickers bars, that's where I got his name! He has a white stripe on his face and adorable markings on his body, he has become my best friend. I love cuddling with him, and petting him, he is starting to relax more and feels more comfortable here.
Does anyone have any advice on weight loss with pets? He is a bit chubby, I think that's from my feeding his fruit and veggie snacks instead of loose hay which I am allergic to. The vet said that is fine but I tend to give him too many treats, I think.
Thanks so much! I tried uploading some photos of Cashmere, my hamster who passed away and Snickers, my guinea pig.
