Gladys the Guinea Pig

Gladys the the shyest guinea pig that I’ve ever met.  She has adorable cowlicks from her forehead to her rump.  I’ve had her since she was a young girl. 

She has an enormous enclosure where she can skitter about.  She prefers fresh grasses as opposed to hay so it’s a good thing there is a meadow here with tall meadow grasses.  I don’t use any pesticides so I know that all grasses here are safe for guinea pig consumption.  And speaking of the meadow, I did see a goat today and now am wondering how hard it is to keep a goat…

In her cage enclosure, Gladys has her own little wooden house and also a section of very large plumbing pipe to sit in.  She’s a shy girl and needs her privacy. 

I give her lots of fresh veggies and fruit, and today I discovered that her cage has an infestation of fruit flies.  Very disgusting indeed.  I dumped all the bedding, after removing her first, and had a swat-fest.  I believe that the fruit flies are mostly eliminated, and I hope that the spider spinning her web in the window will take care of the rest.
