Welcome Onigiri!

So as you may know, my beloved elderly guinea pig Tater Tot passed away last Thursday. This left my other guinea pig, Marzipan, all alone. Guinea pigs are social animals, so it isn't healthy for them to live alone. So on Saturday, my dad and I drove to the middle of nowhere to to the one petstore in something like 50 miles that had female guinea pigs. There was only one left, huddled in the little purple house, and I liked her immediately.

Marzipan's still pretty confused about this furry new thing that's invaded her house, but they seem to be warming up to one another.

So without further ado...a warm welcome to Onigiri!

Marzipan and Onigiri (look at the size difference!)
Here they are again!

Marzipan is very, very confused.

Very cute. I'm glad that you agree with the notion that Guinea Pigs should never be housed alone - I've seen people who disagreed with me.

@Icarusflies: It sort of looks like Marzipan could eat Onigiri there is such a size difference :P

@RazzaTazz: Thanks! ^_^

Though she's a guinea pig, not a hamster.

@YoungJustice: Onigiri says 'Wheek wheek wheek!' :D

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: Thank you! ^_^

@JediXMan: But isn't it law in Sweden or something that guinea pigs can't be housed alone? They get all sad. :(

@CaioTrubat: Just camera flash...or is it?

@King Saturn: Hehe, that they are!

@Xanni15: Thank you! ^_^

@White Mage: Thank you!! ^_^

@Blood1991: Thanks!! I'm glad someone else thinks that Onigiri is a good name >_>

@Fuchsia_Nightingale: Thank you! :D

@mrdecepticonleader: She's a silly one, isn't she?

@Dark_Fang: Thanks! But she's actually a guinea pig. >_>

@Raiiyn: Yay, thank you! :D

@tomlikesfries: Thank you!!

@Jonny_Anonymous: I know, I miss Tater Tot...hopefully she would approve of Onigiri. :(

Sorry about Tater Tot, but I'm glad you were able to find another friend for your existing Guinea pig =).

As I think you know, I have Guinea pigs two and when one of them died I went to get the only one a new friend. We ended up getting two lol. There was a problem though, turns out Cleopatra was a boy not a girl lol. So we compromised by getting a new cage and putting Hestia and Artemis's cage right next to Cleopatra's and it seems to work lol.

Hamsters are rodents, guinea pigs are not. Plus guinea pigs are way cuter, squeakier and larger they're around rat size really.

Onigiri is such a good name choice.

Your dog is so tolerant of other animals O.O. Mine would freaking eat those guinea pig's lol.

@RazzaTazz: Common mistake....though I believe the Most Honorable Judge Clementine says that she must impose a 3 lettuce-head fine upon you. ;)

@Samimista: Thank you! ^_^

@SmashBrawler: Thanks! ^_^

@Vortex13: Whoops! Managed to avert the inevitable Tribble-style disaster then? ;)

@Icarusflies: Lucky guinea pigs. Calypso is a lab right? They're scared of everything in general anyway from my experience with them lol!

Well I'm sorry for my unforgivable error.

@Icarusflies: As I stated before, "w/e"

Got him from a rescue center. He's a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Rottweiler cross. Yeah quite a combination lol but he's very lovable now!

Posted by Icarusflies

@Strider92: Yep, she is. :)

And yeah, she's a scaredy pup. >_>

@ChaosMarvel: Thanks! ^_^

The big white fluffy one is about two or three....the little one is probably only a few weeks old.

How could you replace TT so quickly!? Did you really get over TT that fast!? Haven`t you got any feelings at all!? = P

So CUTE!!!!!!! > )

Posted by Icarusflies

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Aww, don't even joke about that. :(

I miss Tater, I can't just replace her. Onigiri is her own piggie, not a replacement.

And thanks!
