Allow me to introduce Toot and Puddle, the newest addition to the Guinea Pig "family".
We are just delighted to have them with us... But in truth, no one seems to be more thrilled to have their company than new "Granny" Cupcake. She has been a little TOO quiet and subdued since the passing of her sister, Cookie, in early December. The presence of the young 'uns seems to be doing her no end of good-- my kitchen is once again filled with the sweet sounds of squeaking and "chattering", as the little animals talk back-and-forth to one another.
A few times a day, the girlies bring Cupcake out of her palace to have a little up-close visit with the "grandchildren". We won't be putting all of them together in one pen, due to the extreme age difference, and Cupcake's various little ailments...
But we're ALL looking forward to springtime, when we can take them out on the lawn to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air!
