Oscar arrived today. He's just an adorable all-black guinea pig. Diva's been alternating between begging for a hedgehog (thanks Fran, LOL) and a guinea pig for a couple of years now. So today, I gave in. We researched them online and got all the necessary items - big cage, toys, chewing items, vitamin C, Timothy Hay, etc. I did forget the pumice stone to put under water bottle, but I'm sure we'll be heading back up to the pet store soon to stock up on the bedding. We went over care, diet, and her responsibilties, daily floor time, etc. I think she's ready. Anyone have hints or tips? It's turning into a zoo around here - 4 kids, 1 husband, 3 cats, 1 dog, and now Oscar.
