I couldn't help myself. I had an empty cage since we no longer have the pet rats. I saw these two little girls and had to bring them home.
edit 3/3/09: we decided to name her Murphy. A good Irish name to go with the red hair. My daughter reminded me that our neighbor had a dog named Lucy that died last year. Lucy was vetoed.
This one is tentatively named Lucy. She has red hair like Lucille Ball.
This one is Squeee. That's the sound she makes when you pick her up.
Lucy is a bit older, but still very young. Squeee is just a baby. I brought Jessie's wading pool in the house for them to play in while I'm able to supervise. Jessie just loves "her" babies and can hardly leave them alone.
Lucy is in Jessie's pant leg in this photo. Nothing like a guinea pig in your pants to give you the giggles!
