Ursula, Gwen & Octavia

INDOOR HOME ONLY

Ursula, Gwen & Octavia are a very special female guinea pig trio! The girls sadly found themselves in our care after their owner went to prison. We don’t know much about their previous life but we believe Gwen is roughly 12 months old and her daughters around 4 months of age. They are a real joy to care for and are looking for an indoor home together.

Ursula is the youngest (ginger with white stripe) but by far the loudest and most confident! She will happily trot out and wheek directly at you if there’s food going. She also likes being talked to and will happily listen and give her own opinion! As she’s a youngster she’s pretty wiggly to handle and she will nibble at your fingers when she gets bored. Ursula will happily let you stroke her head and approach for attention. It’s rare that we get such a confident, outgoing pig and Ursula is certainly very special.

Gwen is the oldest and largest of the gang, roughly around 12 months of age. She has a pretty light agouti and white coat and definitely has some Abyssinian in her which is evident by her slight quiff and ridged hair on her back! Gwen is much quieter and shy (as most guinea pigs are) but gets a lot of confidence from bold little Ursula and tends to follow her lead.

Octavia is the quietest of the three and is often hiding at the back behind the other girls! Octavia is a gorgeous dark ginger colour and has pretty little pink eyes. She’s rather skittish and it will take time to really bring her out of her shell and help her to learn that people aren’t so scary. Again, she is much happier when Ursula is around to show her the ropes. She also has some Abyssinian in her and sports a very funky ridgeback!

All three piggies love their food especially broccoli, spring greens and hay. Any potential adopter must like the sound of wheeking piggies as Ursula has quite a pair of lungs on her! The piggies would be suitable to live in a home with older, sensible children but they must be supervised at all times. As Ursula is so confident & seeks human interaction we are looking for an indoor home for this trio so they can receive maximum attention. As a trio they will need a large setup (min. 5ft x 2ft) where they can have their own space to stay happy and healthy. They will also need daily access to a separate run to play and explore in. A C&C setup would be ideal and is often a cheaper option than a shop bought indoor cage. There are various websites on how to build your own C&C cage including this one: http:// www.candcguineapigcages.co. uk/ We are happy to advise on housing so please get in touch if you’d like to adopt this lovely trio! Please note: we don’t rehome animals as children’s pets, an adult must be responsible for their day to day care & wellbeing.
