Linus says, “Come stop by the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue’s GUINEA PIG-A-THON this Sunday at the World of Pets Expo in Timonium MD and give me chin scratchies! I LOVE chin scratchies! I will be there all afternoon as a spokespig. My forever family will be there too with information on fostering, adopting, and proper piggy care. I might even get to help out with the syringe feeding demonstration, which means free fruit-flavored mush for me! Whee!”

New foster piggies…two more skinny pigs!! They are little pink baby sisters from the same hoarding rescue our previous trio came from. We need to fatten them up so they can get safely spayed in a few months. Welcome Ellette and Suzette!! :)
