Florence and Edward – Adopted!

Flo&Eddie1014

Update 6/15: Flo and Eddie have been adopted into a loving home! Congratulations to everyone, and thank you to Northstar Rescue and Andy’s Pet Shop!

Flo and Eddie are a darling young couple who came to us last fall. We got Eddie neutered right away because they seem very bonded and we want them to stay together, but that meant an extended pregnancy watch for Flo, as we had to start the clock 2 weeks after Eddie’s surgery. She did not have any pups, so now Flo and Eddie are available for adoption.

Like all young guinea pigs, Flo and Eddie love to run and play. A Cubes and Coroplast (C&C) cage is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to provide a roomy home for your guinea pigs. Guinea Pig Cages website will help you to find the materials you need and gives instructions on how to build one.

Flo is a long-haired guinea pig, so she will require regular grooming to keep her coat clean and free of mats. We recommend keeping her fur cut short for easy care, unless you want to spend a lot of time fussing over her to keep it long and silky.

Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you would like to meet these adorable guinea pigs.

Angelo has his mother’s brown and white markings, while Michael is all white with dark eyes like his father.

Update 9/17/14: Michael and Angelo have been adopted! Thank you North Star Rescue and Andy’s Pet Shop for helping them to find a loving home!

Like all young guinea pigs, Angelo and Michael love to run and play. They enjoy each others’ company and must be kept together. Guinea pigs are naturally herd animals and should always be with friends of their own species.

Gloria and Calvin – Adopted!

GloriaCalvin514

Update 10/14/14: Gloria and Calvin have a new home! Thank you to Andy’s Pet Shop and North Star Rescue for helping them to connect with their new family!

Gloria is the lovely sheltie/silkie girl on the left, and Calvin the handsome ebony boy. Calvin is probably still less than a year old, and Gloria just a few months. They are playful and enjoy sitting on their pigloos and wheeking at mealtimes. Though they are not eager to be picked up, they are both okay with being held and stroked. Calvin has been neutered.

Did you know that hay is the basis for a guinea pig’s diet? Grass hays such as timothy or orchard provide essential fiber for keeping their gut moving properly and their teeth worn. Add a bowl of clean water, some quality pellets such as Oxbow Essentials – Adult Guinea Pig Food (formerly known as Cavy Cuisine) and fresh greens such as romaine, cilantro, carrot tops and dandelion each day, and your guinea pig has the foundation for a long, healthy life!

Update 6/9/14: Pauly and Agnes have been adopted! Best wishes to them and their new family!

Update 4/27/14: Agnes and Pauly are now available for adoption at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose through North Star Rescue.

Pauly and Agnes were rescued from Manzanita Park just after the New Year. Pauly was neutered in February, and Agnes delivered her babies in March. Now that the babies have been weaned and moved out, Agnes and Pauly are ready to go to their own loving, forever home!

Pauly and Agnes have learned all about taking treats from human hands. They are still shy about being held and stroked, but will come around with regular gentle handling.

Agnes and two of her five babies.

Update 6/20/14: The three girls have been adopted! Best wishes to them and their new families!

Update 4/27/14: Pearl, Crystal and Angela are now available for adoption at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose through North Star Rescue.

Crystal, Angela and Pearl and their two brothers, Michael and Angelo, were born on March 11. Five babies is a large litter for guinea pigs, but Agnes did an excellent job of feeding and caring for them. The babies are now weaned and the girls are ready for adoption!

All three girls are white with dark eyes. Since they all look like fellow Manzanita Park piggy Nestor, we assume he is the daddy, but Pauly has been a terrific stepdad.

Pauly&Babies314
Pauly and the family.

The girls may be adopted as a trio, a pair, or a single girl may be a friend for your female or neutered male guinea pig. Guinea Lynx has lots of great info about caring for guinea pigs. North Star has a nice guide to housing.

Clover and Mochi – Adopted!

Mochi&Clover

Update 5/22/14: Mochi and Clover have been adopted! Best wishes to them and their new family!

Update 4/27/14: Clover and Mochi are now available for adoption at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose through North Star Rescue.

Mochi and Clover are sisters. Aren’t they lovely? They are about 2 1/2 years old now.

They are a little shy and not used to being picked up, but, like all guinea pigs, Clover and Mochi are social animals, and their humans need to work everyday to be a trusted part of the herd. Hand feeding them their veggies and talking to them when you are visiting help them to know you are a friend. Here is a good video on how to tame your guinea pigs.

We have had them for just over a week now. At first they hid in their house when we came into the room, but now they are front and center at mealtimes, and it is getting easier to pick them up and stroke them at every cage cleaning.

Henry1213
Update 2/4/14: Henry has been adopted! He is now enjoying life with a delightful new girlfriend and loving piggy parents! Congratulations to everyone!

Henry is a handsome Peruvian boy. He is friendly and easy to handle. His long locks will need to be cared for all of his life, so be sure you enjoy that sort of work or are willing to take him in to be groomed every 3 months before committing to adopting him!

Henry1213MCAS

Did you know that most pet store cages are too small for guinea pigs? Just because there is a picture of a guinea pig on the box doesn’t mean that your piggies will be happy crowded into that little space! Guinea Pig Cages has lots of great ideas for housing guinea pigs so they have the room they need to run around, as well as space for their huts, beds, hay boxes, food dishes, and toys.

HenryMCAS1213

Henry has been neutered and will be “girl-safe” mid-January. Contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in adopting this darling boy to be a friend for your guinea pig.

Update 2/25/14: Kayla and Honey are now at Andy’s Pet Shop in San Jose, and available for adoption through North Star Rescue.

Kayla and Honey are both about 1 1/2 years old, with Kayla being a few weeks older than Honey. They are sweet and delightful girls. Like all guinea pigs, they are especially skilled at turning hay into “gardener’s black gold” and will be doubly pleased if you plant an extra row of veggies just for them!

TootsieRollPiglet813

Tootsie Roll and Piglet have been adopted! Congratulations to them and their new family! May you have many delightful years together!

Tootsie Roll and Piglet are a darling guinea pig couple. Tootsie Roll is the lovely girl on the left. They are social piggies who will take treats from your hand and are fine with being snuggled and cooed over.

Handsome Piglet has had some problems with bladder stones in the past, so he needs to be on a healthy diet- no junk food or high calcium foods for this boy! He has been neutered.

He and Tootsie Roll are 3 years old, and they must remain together. They can also be adopted with their friends Coconut and Midnight, or Almond Joy and Kalua.

For more information about living with guinea pigs, please visit Guinea Lynx. Guinea Pig Cages has great housing ideas.

Please contact us here at Friendly Farms for more information about adopting these sweeties.
