Murphy : 4 year old guinea pig

I realized I hadn’t given any update for March. Her blood came back and appeared negative for lymphoma. Her weight went up, then back down, and we went to the local vet and she was put on antibiotics because she was doing this weird huffing. They wanted to do a few tests, but that would […]

Happy Birthday – Now, go to the vet!

My nugget, Murphy, turned 4 years old on February 11th. I noticed very tiny behavioral changes on Tuesday, so I decided to weigh her. She is 914 grams. In October, she was 980-990 grams. Hmmph. Murphy’s teeth are still good after her dental. Her heart is not as strong as they would like it to […]

When your guinea pig herd shrinks to 1

I never thought all our interactions would be snack-based. Murphy has been my single piggy for over 3 months. She hates to be handled. She’s always asking for snacks. She’s usually really active. I wish she’d stop biting me. I had to clip her nails last week, and you’d think she was as mad as […]

Cats gotta eat

It’s October. We can’t have the windows open.

Tommy Gargoyle has been on Prozac for about two months now for his spraying issues and anxiety. He’s doing well and I haven’t seen him mark anything personally in quite some time. However, our youngest male cat Stewart is a piss machine. If we have the windows open he’s spraying like five times a day […]

oh gosh they are so cute

Most of the time the guinea pigs think I’m either going to feed them or eat them myself. I cleaned the pen today and left them in the little swimming pool while I did it. After a while, it’s so funny, Lily and her daughter Murphy start to follow me around the room and stand […]

It’s getting better

I think I’m done updating the Juvenile Weights of the guinea pigs. They are full grown, except for Potsticker, who seems to grow out rather than up. She is almost 1000 grams. Her auntie Mu-Xi is 1010 grams. Stewart is eating the new food without being too skittish about it now. Stewart got sprayed in […]
