Sammy – Adopted!

Posted in Adopted! at 7:02 PM by Lori

Update 2/1/13: Dear Sammy has been adopted! Thank you to Cynthia of North Star and Judy of RabbitEARS for helping him to find a sweet girlfriend and a loving family!

Adorable Sammy is sweet and a little shy. He will become a confident and happy pig when he has a secure and loving home. He is looking forward to meeting eligible girls. His neuter surgery was on October 18, and he is “girl-safe” as of November 15.

Sammy is still a little overweight. Muesli-mix type foods may look colorful and fun on the shelf at the pet store, but plain pellets such as Oxbow Essentials are the right food for your guinea pig. A healthy diet for a normal adult guinea pig each day consists of unlimited timothy hay, about 1/8 cup plain guinea pig timothy pellets, and a cup of vegetables, most of which should be leafy greens. A small bit of fruit or carrot makes a nice treat for pigs who are not overweight. Here is a nice guinea pig food pyramid guide.

Sammy thinks running laps is a lot of fun, and he looks forward to having a friend to play pig-train with.

Kate and Blossom – Adopted!

Update 1/5/13: Kate and Blossom now have a lovely C&C cage in their new home! Thank you, Emily, for falling in love with them and giving these sweet girls the good life they deserve!

Kate and Blossom are a lovely pair of girls. We believe they are sisters and between one and two years of age. They are very friendly and fine with being handled and petted. Don’t forget to keep the refrigerator stocked, because they are always on the lookout for blueberry or dandelion greens treats!

Did you know that keeping guinea pigs on cedar or pine shavings is not the best choice? There are many different things you can use for flooring in guinea pig cages. Paper-based litters such as Care Fresh are excellent, but the cost adds up. Fleece is a popular choice, or just ordinary towels, if you make sure to change them everyday.

For more information about caring for guinea pigs, visit Guinea Lynx. Cavy Cages has lots of great housing ideas.

Andy – Adopted!

Sweet Andy now has a girlfriend and a loving forever home! Thank you to Judy of RabbitEARS!

Andy was found in a shoebox by some trashcans before he came to us. We don’t know how long it was between when he was discarded and discovered, but he had a voracious appetite the first week after his rescue.

Andy is about 2 years old, with a very sweet personality. He has been neutered and is safe to introduce to girls now with no chance of pregnancy.

Please contact us here at Friendly Farms if you are interested in giving this darling boy a loving, forever home.
