Be My Valentine Card swap
Today was an exciting day in our house! My daughter had been begging (literally) her father for guinea pigs and then someone found a free family of guinea pigs on Craig's List. She talked her father into letting her just adopt the 3 month old boys (because I reminded her that she was responsible for the care and food). We opted for a clear but long storage box with lid because it was bigger and cheaper than a cage. She can save up for a cage later. We hit Walmart for food, bedding, water dispenser, and food dish to save on start up cost; I also reassured her that an empty tissue box was cheaper than a store bought hideaway. She is super excited because the critters were free and needed a home. The owner had run out of pet food today and was anxious to send them to a new home. (Not thinking about the other two animals and what was going to happen to them...probably Humane Society, right???) LOL!
Have a good day and STAY WARM...brrrr!
