Cute, cute, cute..... [Oct. 13th, 2005|10:29 am]
Tony Grist

I didn't mention this before, what with everything else that was going on, but we acquired a rabbit and a guinea pig last week. Joe had been talking about getting a snake or a rottweiler and I figured we should head him off at the pass.

I was thinking small animals would be low maintenance. I was wrong.

The rabbit is Toshiro Mifunny the Bunny (aka Fluffbucket) and the guineapig is Mulan

Oh, boy, were you wrong! I've heard rather alarming stories about how difficult rabbits can be. But maybe your rabbit will be different. :)
We had a guinea pig, and there's a lot of maintenance there, although guinea pigs are not, ime, difficult pets. They're a bit high strung. (Ours was ridiculously high strung, but, then, he'd lost part of an ear to another guinea pig, so I can see how he'd be a bit tense!) But if you are patient, they probably make lovely pets. (We were children, and not so much with the patient. ;)
Good luck!

Our rabbit is still a baby, but he's growing up fast. We understand that'll we'll need to get him neutered.

The guinea pig is very nervy and shy. We have been a little worried about her, so today we went out and bought her a companion. We trust (though the shopman couldn't guarantee it) that they're both female.

I think the main thing I read about was that they chew everything; hopefully yours will be a bit picky. :)

I hope a companion helps! But I think that part of it is just guinea pigs; it's funny how timid they are, considering they are one of the larger rodents!

Well, she should be happier with a companion- even if we don't see much of either of them.

As for the rabbit, yes, he likes to use his teeth...:)
