I realized that I posted about getting Nathan and Olive on my facebook, but never formally introduced them on the blog. How silly of me! We've been so busy lately with the holidays that I haven't had a chance to blog and I will try to keep it up.
Mommy and Daddy adopted Nathan and Olive from Foggy Creek Cavy Rescue on November 11th. They wanted to get a neutered male piggy to go with Cinnamon Spice and Vanilla Bean and looked around at many shelters, but they either didn't neuter their males or they wouldn't adopt out if you had piggies at home that were not fixed. It was kind of frustrating! They decided to contact the Foggy Creek Cavy Rescue in Auburn, Washington and asked if they ever got any neutered males. They responded back saying that they actually had 2 fixed males at the time, but both were paired with females. One was with 2 girls and the other was with 1 girl and they wanted to keep them together. So, Mommy and Daddy decided to get the 2 pigs named Nathan and Olive.
Olive was brought to the rescue with some other Guinea Pigs and not much is known about her past. She may be 2-3 years old.
Nathan was born at the rescue and is under a year old. He didn't get along with any other males so he was neutered and paired with Olive.
Adopting these two was the best thing we could have done! They are a great addition to our family and I love them so much.
