your daily dose of guinea pig (and other Caviidae friends)

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!”
