Momma Jingle and Baby Belle are two female guinea pigs looking for a loving guardian together.
Momma Jingle had a litter of babies who were adopted. Baby Belle came in to Friends of Petraits with a colony of five guinea pigs. When Jingle was lonely Baby Belle came to comfort her. And, she is a hilarious baby … she jumps high in the air and runs circles around her large enclosure.
Jingle is missing one of her rear feet, but she doesn’t let that slow her down!
They are smooth-coated, very healthy and sweet. They are easy to hold and let you trim their nails.
They are talkative and make adorable whistles, squeals, chirps, squeaks and purring noises-especially when they hear their food coming.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays, limited pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, etc. Guinea pigs, like humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement with red pepper or other vitamin C rich foods.
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
They would love a home with people who will handle them daily, keep them well fed, and keep their habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in possibly adopting Jingle and Belle, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application.
They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee of $70 as a pair benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $100, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for them including a large cage, pellets, hay, litter, hidey huts and water bottles.
