This is Percy the Peruvian cross, not quite sure what he is crossed with, but I assume Abyssinian with how wild his coat is. His background was that his owner didn't have the time to take care of him anymore and so Percy fell into neglect, whilst otherwise healthy, his coat was matted and he was dirty.
Now he is in a loving home getting all the snuggles and cuddles he could wish for, he will lay on your lap for hours and adores having his fur brushed and combed, and he gives plenty of kisses, especially when you scratch under his chin. He will also sass at you if you try putting him back too soon before his cuddle/brush quota is met.
His feet are also adorbs
This is Pedro the Lunkarya, he is a shy and somewhat skittish bean who came from a hoard of 200+ guinea pigs and was a mess before getting tidied up and bonded with Percy.
He wasn't a fan of me at first and wouldn't let me touch him, though once I found the one spot he'd let me scratch, under the chin, he became far friendlier and now lets me pet his sides and back and gives the occasional kiss too... Though he is still a grunting wriggle worm when it comes to brushing.
He is a massive fan of the tube and won't share it, even with Percy.
Though, old man Scrappy, my now 4 year old Japanese Quail, isn't quite sure what to think to these strange, hairy potatoes. Though they do get along in supervised freeroam time.
