Since they were found abandoned, we don't know exactly how old they are, but they are not quite fully grown yet, so probably about 6 months or so.
We got a new cage for them that is on wheels, so it's easy to move them when we need to clean under the cage. Marc made a super little hut for them out of pallet wood.
Marc enjoys the guinea pigs as well - here he is holding Toffee. Toffee's fur is whorled and always pointing in all directions, which is rather amusing. I think he is an Abyssinian type of guinea pig.
Toffee likes exploring Marc's desk, and sometimes squeaks with apparent delight when he's up there!
Here I am with Rolo, trying to get him used to being handled. They are both quite skittish.
We regularly let them run around in a larger box for play and exercise.
We have another smaller box within it that they use for "hiding" in, if they feel nervous.
Toffee likes to try to escape, and is sometimes successful!
He keeps whispering to Rolo his plans to take over the world, but Rolo is very quiet about it. Look at that crazy fur!
Rolo is more interested in exploring paper tubes.
