Keeping pets

from w
Well it seemed a good idea at the time, for our little grand-daughter to have a pet - not a horse that she wished for, but at least it's a creature to care for. A guinea pig which they named Izzie after the Hawaiian chap that sings 'Somewhere over the rainbow' with a ukelele. Well, Izzie got along fine, but was very shy. We'd take him out to the back yard to eat real grass and he'd start to sing a bit. When he saw a youtube guinea pig queeking, he'd join in. Then the family decided they wanted a companion for Izzie so this week a black bunny was purchased and joined the family. He hopped and smelt everything and the two got along, sort of. Izzie got quite excited at first and squealed and queeked a treat but Ozzie wasn't too interested in Izzie. Both boys by the way. One black. One white with a bit or ranga. Now they sort of get along, eat grass, carrots, celery, cucumber, etc.together. But, who has to clean out the cage? Hmm. Most members of our family of nine aren't so keen on that part of the bargain. Anyway, most people in the household appreciate the new guests though one of us reckons Izzie is too much like a rat for her to ever touch him!

Yeah. Good question. Peceli does it, Andrew does it and I do sometimes. Whose animals are they? One of the young kids!
The rabbit is now feeling confident and pushes the guinea pig away if he invades the rabbit's space and food. I have to put out two separate lots of food to keep the peace!
