Surprise!!!

Read my previous post if you haven't already....

Ok, so after school a high school kid, Peter, stopped by to see our new baby Guinea Pig....he was downstairs with Aaron and they could hear squeaking coming from the cage that Squeaky and the new baby were in....but Peter thought he was also hearing squeaking coming from somewhere else. Aaron thought it was an echo at first. He looked around a little and finally found another baby Guinea Pig....on the floor under one of our recliners....You may wonder how it got there, and we sort of do, too, although the best guess is that it got out of the cage that Squeaky had previously been in, which is one that Aaron built....it has metal sides that have sort of a mesh-type construction....so it's entirely possible that he/she escaped somehow, although there's a plastic ridge that covers the bottom and goes about 4 in. up each side, so he/she obviously had to climb on the cedar chips a little bit to accomplish this feat. Once the babies are a little bigger, they won't be able to fit through, but until then, we'll use a glass aquarium (with a very solid lid to keep the cat out). What an adventure!!! Speaking of the cat, Smokey is very agitated by all of this, and it's a minor miracle that he hadn't killed baby #2!!!

baby #1 and baby #2....we are going to offer one of them to the kids' cousins in CO (if one is a boy, that will be the one we'll offer!)

Ha Ha that's funny. Russ and Laurie (we camped with them in Rapid -- the ones with the twin boys), anyway they went to a pet store to make sure they got two "boy" guinea pigs for the twins as a b-day present. Well.......one turned out to be a girl and they had babies! It was pretty funny!! :)
