We've just bought a couple of baby guinea pigs for the kids' birthdays and I have to say they're the cutest things ever! However I am finding it harder work than I thought I would looking after them. Must've just adapted how i carry out jobs in the house to avoid kneeling down on the ground (and also don't clean as often as I used to). Finding it quite hard going on my knees. They were so cute and cuddly in the shop but now they're home and becoming more comfortable with us, they're squirmy little buggers! So finding myself crawling on the floor quite a lot when playing with them/cleaning the cage etc. Still, wouldn't change them for the world.
The one really good thing about them though has been the fact that they have given me a new focus. Rather than my search history being full of websites on inflammatory arthritis and drugs,it's now full of "How to look after a guinea pig" websites!!!
