It was at the third petstore where we found more than one guinea pig - we just had to get two. Of course one for each daughter, but also because they do better with a companion. We got two females (they only sell females at the store we were at - plus the little research I did do said that you really want females vs. males. Males smell worse (ha ha!) and they're more active).
The girls picked out two babies who just happen to be sisters!
Aren't they adorable?
This is Therese's "Carmelite" (aka Augustina - "Gus Gus") I don't know if she's really decided on a definite name yet!
And here is Sophia's "Agnes"
Carmelite is very friendly. She has more of a bunny-looking nose. While Agnes would rather stay in her cage (which they share) and hide. Not very social.
This is only our third day with them - so if you have any experience with guinea pigs can you share your thoughts about them?
