It's really funny to watch Charlie and Hedgie socialize with each other. He's huge for one thing and she never paid any attention to Goldie, but for whatever reason she will sit in her cage and let him lick her. He's not hurting her and she's not trying to bite him, so I guess they're fine.
Hedgie by herself is driving us bananas! In the last two weeks, she's starting demanding food every time someone walks by. This is hard to avoid since she's in the front room and she can hear you coming from whatever direction. Forget the fact that the dogs are all over the place and that will set off her chomping the cage for food as well. We've all been trying to convince Shelby that we need to find a new home for her to no avail. I like her, but believe me when I say that this is the last guinea pig this momma's gonna fall for! The dog's are more than enough at this stage.
She is really cute though.
Let me clarify my mother's comment though before anyone gets offended. I will cry like a baby when Hedgie passes away, I did with the last guinea as well. That said, she's been with us much longer than expected and with two shepard/lab 6 month old terrors, my hands are a little full. My 11 year old can't bear to part with her guinea, but yet isn't a whole lot of help with her either. I'm working on convincing her to let us find her a new home, but in the meantime, I'll have to keep enjoying her until her time comes to an end. Now it's really going to be something if Miss Hedgie decides to be one of those lifer guinea pigs, I won't promise not to complain, but I will keep feeding her.
