Aww... Guniea pig? I had 2, up until they died a year ago...They're fairly low-maintence, you just throw some timothy hay and romaine lettuce greens into the cage every night, and they're happy!

We also had luck feeding them carrots, cucumbers, and their absolute favorites, Dandilion greens and clover flowers. Vanilla especially loved the purple clovers.
They're very clean usually, they'll choose 1 area of their cage to make their messes in, and they'll keep it there (for the most part). The only problem is keeping the bedding fresh, as it WILL get soggy and smelling fairly quickly, since it's all so concentrated. We used pulverized newspaper to bed with- biodegradable and absorbant, I can't remember the brand, but it was white and came in a green package....
ETA: I am allergic to cats (Very allergic), and the Guinea Pigs did cause problems for me sometimes, but they also lived in my bedroom. If you have carpet, this might be a problem, but I don't think it will be too bad...I was told that Guinea pigs and cats share a lot of the same genes.
Funny: Every single cat I've ever met was terrifyed of guinea pigs, my sister's best friend did this trick where she'd put the guinea pig on the grass, and it would chase the cat all the way around the yard!
Jessebel is the golden one, and Vanilla is the one that looks like a sundae...

I love Newfs! In grade 3 (about a hundred years ago) we had to join a Friday club, and I chose Pet Club. The lady that volunteered to run it had a Canadian National Champion Newfoundland dog. I have never forgotten how sweet and patient that dog was. Hubby wanted an English Mastiff, so that is what we have now among various and sundry. I have to say she is just as sweet. :nod
Meet Izzy...the newest member to my family....not my house unfortunately but still in my family...she's my 5 year old nephew's.
Izzy is a 9 week old Boston Terrier who is now, officially after a week in the family, spoiled rotten!!! :teeth I'm sure I will be posting more pictures as I think she is the cutest little thing to ever be! :dog
Oh! I WANT ONE!!! How much does your family want for her?
My boston terrier swallowed a needle one time and I have to take it out, painful eh?
I don't doubt that for a second. Mastiffs are wonderful teddy bears. Gustav took some classes with a monster of a Mastiff named Ernie, and they were best buddies.
Hubby wanted an English Mastiff, so that is what we have now among various and sundry. I have to say she is just as sweet. :nod
