Hello all! Whee are a herd of guinea piggies hailing from sunny California, also known as the State of Perpetual Year Round Forages and Veggies. The Cali Cavy Collective is a name we all agreed upon because we are a collective of cavies from California.. and because we like alliterations. Whee have decided to start this blog to chronicle our pigventures, give humans a glimpse into our daily lives, and show the world how generally awesome all piggies are.
Stay tuned as we work to get everything up and running.. but for now, snack time! There is fresh timothy and orchard grass hay being given out and its always the most fun to dive in while its fresh.
