Mitzi and Marbles are beautiful and sweet, 18-month-old, female tri-color bonded guinea pigs looking for a loving guardian.
Mitzi is an Abyssinian with swirls and rosettes in her fur; Marbles is a smooth coat.
Purchased at a pet store, their family gave them up to Friends of Petraits when dad lost his job. The four girls in the family ranged from four to 18 years old, so they are accustomed to being handled and loved on. They let you trim their nails and they love to romp in their hay and munch.
Guinea pigs eat a diet of unlimited Timothy and Orchard hays; a handful of guinea pig pellets, and fresh vegetables including romaine, red leaf and green leaf lettuces, cilantro, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, etc. Guinea pigs, just like humans, can’t manufacture their own vitamin C, so they need to supplement with red pepper and many other vitamin C-rich foods.
Please read up on guinea pig care and diet before adopting by visiting this excellent web site http://www.guinealynx.info/.
They would love a home with people who will handle them daily, keep them well fed, and keep their habitat nice and clean.
If you’re interested in possibly adopting Mitzi and Marbles, please fill out an adoption application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/guinea-pig-adoption-application/.
They are being fostered in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Their adoption fee of $120 benefits the Friends of Petraits Rescue. For an additional $75, we’ll include a package of absolutely everything you need to care for them including a large cage, litter, pellets, hay, hidey hut and water bottle.
And, yes … Friends of Petraits is handling masked, minimum contact, socially distant adoptions.
