Guinea Pig Updates

So, I have some news about the guinea pigs at the shelter! It turned out that all of the female guinea pigs that were surrendered to the shelter a while ago were all pregnant. Half of them went to the guinea pig rescue, but the shelter still has four. Three of them are still expecting, but on Tuesday I got to see one of them, Billie Jo, have her  babies. She had two really adorable baby guinea pigs. She is a very good guinea pig mom, and her cage mate, Betty likes to help. Poor Billie Jo is still a baby herself. I would guess that she is about seven months old, so she isn't fully grown but she had some pretty big guinea pig babies!

And, don't worry I haven't forgotten that I have to post the video of Munchkin's new playpen. I have to take a new one because the lighting was really bad in the one that I took. So that will be posted sometime this week probably.


  1. I would have liked to have seen those brand-new, just born babies!
    Love and hugs,

  2. How cute! How small are the baby guinea pigs? Do you know if the shelter is planning on keeping any of the baby guinea pigs, or are some going to have to go to the guinea pig rescue too?
