Today Marshmallow (Marsh) has turned 5 years old!!! πŸ₯³

We don’t know her exact date of birth, so we made it the 1st of Dec! πŸ₯‡

Ok back to the story.. 😁

un-pause… β–Ά

Me and my bro had been saving up for.. pet rats… πŸ€

At my cousins school fete I had held one and loved it! ❀

So we were saving up for 2 little rats, then on Christmas day we unwrapped a smallish wooden hutch/cage… 🀏🏠 and just sat there..

Mum and dad were like guys you’re going to have guinea pigs and we were like oh.. cool… I don’t know why we didn’t jump up and start dancing, but we just didn’t. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

I don’t really remember anything else about that Christmas… but I do remember choosing out a piggy! 🐹

We drove to the owners house and there they were: small hutches outside with lots of baby guinea pigs!! 😍

I saw a black baby piggy (the owners let me hold her and i knew this was the pig for me) and chose her, my brother chose a brownish-grey and white striped piggy. ❀❀

Mum and dad payed $20 each for the guinea pigs and then we drove home…..🚘🏑

They were in the basket pictured below and it was filled with hay so they could hide in it to feel safer. 😁


Sadly my piggy, Dest had to be put down in October 2018 (rest in peace, my piggy princess) because she had lots of problems with her teeth that were stopping her from eating (that is very bad for guinea pigs). πŸ˜₯

After she died we had to think about getting another guinea pig companion for Marsh because guinea pigs always need a friend. πŸ˜™

(pics of Dest older πŸ‘‡)

One day in June 2019 we were going to a farm that you could see and feed the animals. 🐐

At the front area they were selling guinea pigs!! 🐹

We were looking for girl guinea pigs to get for Marsh and there some were! πŸ₯³

After talking it through, we decided to get one! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³

We decided to get a black one (to honour Dest) and named her Clover. πŸ€

When we brought her home I thought that it would be good to take her outside to eat some grass, so I took her outside and sat down……

I used my legs to cage her in, so she wouldn’t esape…….. then she bolted!!

The scared Clover ran through a hole in the front gate, on to the drive way and under the car!!!! 😱

I ran after her, crying and thinking its gonna be my fault that poor guinea pig runs on the road and gets run over by a car!!! (if that happened i would never be able to forgive myself! 😭

My brother came to check on me and saw the outline of a guinea pig under the car……..

He ran to get mum and dad. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

After a while of us chasing Clove under the car she ran into the bushes! 😱

It was getting late, starting to get dark and spitting rain.. 🌧

It was my dad’s idea to get a cardboard box that saved Clover from getting lost.

As she ran past, dad put the open part of the box over her and then I scooped her up in my arms. πŸ˜…

We didn’t let her meet Marsh until it had been 2 or 3 weeks, so we could see if she had sickness or something that she could spread to Marsh. 🐹

The introduction between Marsh and Clove went really well, and we put them in their brand new cage. 🀏🏠

Still to this day Clove doesn’t really let anyone touch her (she just bolts) but she is a lot better then when we first got her (she wouldn’t even eat when people were around). πŸ₯•
