She is gorgeous.
I have my fingers crossed that it will turn out to be nothing major, and it just a guinea pig keeping their owner on their toes.

Thank you all for thinking of us! The vet has had a look at the fluid she squeezed out of the lump and confirmed that it is most likely cancer :( we’re going to try antibiotics in the hope that it’s just an inflammatory response but we’ll likely need to operate. Not the news I was hoping for but I can’t say it was unexpected
