A Unique Guinea Pig

Casper the guinea pig and his very best friend Badger, a rabbit, lived at an animal shelter in Cornwall. Now I do not condone putting a guinea pig and rabbit together but they absolutely adored each other and had been friends for years.

They were allowed to free roam at the shelter and meet and greet prospective adopters. Very sadly in January Badger had to be put to sleep:

Poor Casper was distraught. I have been given the honour of re-homing him to live with one of my single ladies:

He is a unique guinea pig. Because he was used to socialising with volunteers and the public, he has no fear of humans - he acts more like a dog!

He has a yellow "lap" towel which he now uses as his "nap" towel. He climbs on whenever he feels like a nap - whether there is another guinea pig on there or not!

He has also befriended Hattie the "killer" pig from Walsall RSPCA:

I have never known a pig like him - he provides so much joy and pleasure and is a real credit to the animal shelter.
