Elvis and Cinnamon Swirl — Petraits Rescue
today at 7:31 am
Guinea Pigs Elvis and Cinnamon Swirl are best friend male guinea pigs looking for a loving home together.
These three-year-old boys get along beautifully and were given up to Friends of Petraits Rescue when their humans agreed they weren’t taking good care of them, and giving them the daily attention they deserved.
Elvis is a smooth coat with adorable black and white markings. Cinnamon Swirl is an Abyssinian with crazy hair and red eyes.
They are sweet, talkative and easy to hold guinea pigs. They make adorable whistles, squeals, chirps, squeaks and purring noises-especially when they hear their food coming. And, they let me trim their nails.
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 Elvis and Cinnamon Swirl, please contact [email protected] 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.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions during the pandemic.
