Adopting Poof - An Abby with Attitude

Sleepy guinea pig Poof

Today officially marks four years since Poof scampered her way into our home and our hearts.

In 2010, we visited Bunny Bunch SPCR's Expo with the intention of learning more about rabbit care. At the time, we had four guineas already and were interested in adopting a rabbit (or two). While we did indeed learn quite a bit at Bunny Basics 101, we ended up falling in love with Poof's shy little face instead.

Little did we know that Poof's innocently sweet exterior masked an Abby with serious attitude. Before you could say "Where's the lettuce?" she had overthrown the existing social hierarchy and installed herself as Cavy-in-Chief. No pigloo was left unclaimed in her relentless quest for the cushiest sleeping corner. Even today, fearsome Truffle will opt for a hasty departure when Poof wants her spot.

And for a bonus: Poof tells her side of the story here on the Undercover Guinea Pigs blog.

Happy four year adoption anniversary, Poof!

  3. Happy Adoption Day, Poof! My favorite pig was an abby, and she had more attitude than most of my other pigs, combined. Poof looks content in ruling her kingdom.
