Boomerang Piggies!

It's been an interesting day...this morning I went to Palermo to meet someone giving away a guinea pig on Craigslist, only to find out I had adopted him out to this family over a year ago. The daughter "lost interest" and they felt it was better to give him up (without calling me, of course, even though I would have taken him back anyway). Almond's cagemate passed away, and right now he is really frightened and it will take some time for him to adjust to being back here.
We also adopted out Luigi earlier this evening, only to have him come back a few hours later when the family dog tried to attack him while he was in his cage. Fortunately, he was not hurt, and the adopter did the right thing by bringing him back for his own safety.
So, not a great day for guinea pigs, but we will keep putting out ads and trying to get some of them adopted, as well as taking in some that need good new homes.
