We got a guinea pig a little while back. It was never healthy, it died after we had it a couple of months so we got a new guinea pig. We had decided on her when the family we were getting her from thought they better check the sex (we thought we were getting a boy) they checked the sex and sure enough, it was a girl and it was fat and it had been in with all the other guinea pigs so we took the guinea pig "at our own risk". Ha ha, yep, she kept getting fatter and fatter and this last weekend while we were at my family reunion she finally had her babies! Three survived and the runt died. They are so cute! Did you know guinea pigs are born with their eyes open and with fur and teeth? They start eating regular food a few hours after they are born. They are basically just tiny miniaturized guinea pigs. Here are some pics, so fun! By the way, does anyone want a guinea pig in 6 weeks?

I knew it! When you had my kids over and brought her home that day, I was sure she was preggers. They are so adorable! Do you know the genders? Are they loud/smelly? Do you have any idea how long they live? It would be fun to have one...but I'm not sure about it with our cats.
