Would You Like Some Tea? by BrittyDee Would You Like Some Tea? by BrittyDee
Sooooo... I was planning to wait to adopt a guinea pig until August after a camping trip, but I went to this petting zoo on Thursday that I had planned on adopting from in the future with my neighbors last week on June 28th and saw her up for adoption, and I just needed her :aww: She was the runt of the little family, and she was so pretty and such a sweetheart :D I really wanted an abyssinian guinea pig (cause they have that cute fluffy, spikey hair, plus the little mohawk!) and I wanted her to be a female (since female rodents don't have that musky smell), and she fit the job! xD So I adopted her and she came home with me that day :heart: I named her Amber :love: I actually wasn't really a fan of the name before, but when I was holding her, it just seemed to suit her, it was probably the colors :)

So yesterday, I tricked my cousin Ashley into believing I wanted her to come over for a tea party, and she didn't know I had the little girl yet so I surprised her xD I can't believe she bought it!! And then we had a fun little photo shoot taking pictures of her in all the teacups :love: The little flower in her hair is actually a little paper flower with a circular shaped sticker on the back, I didn't wanna put a little clip in her hair that would hurt her roots :(

She actually is quite sassy and has a little attitude, believe it or not xD She nips a little, but not to hurt me, just to tell me she doesn't like something. She makes all these funny little noises too, and she gets cranky when she's hungry lol She likes 'popcorning' in her cage, it's hilarious watching her get some air, hahaha. She also is very picky with her food just like me xD We're still getting used to each other and trying to bond ^^ She's also already grown about an inch and it's only been 6 days!

I used a photoshop action to make this a little prettier, by :iconlieveheersbeestje:, the 'Nature' action, and took off a few layers of it to fit what I wanted the result to look like :)

Many more to come soon, when I feel like taking the time to make the photos prettier :P I probably took like 50+ photos of her in the past few days but I selected maybe 4 or 5 that are good enough to upload :D

Expect her to grow a lot more! This actually kind sounds kinda like my piggie, Jacki. I went out to eat with my parents and sister, Tatiana, and on our way home we stopped at Petco to get some food for Tatiana's turtle. I had been planning on getting a guinea pig for a while but had a month left of a deal I had with my parents about getting a pet. While they were getting food I went over to the guinea pigs and saw the most adorable baby piggie! I pratically flew over to my mom and dragged her to the guinea pigs. At first she did not want anything to do with me getting one yet, but I pointed to Jacki and said, "Look how cute she is!" My mom and I fell in love with her so we bought her. That was almost three years ago and ocassionally she still "popcorns." She's always been a COMPLETE diva and thinks she's the center of the universe. Jacki is also extremely picky with her food! If you need any advice just ask!

Awh man, I want her to stay this little, haha. I know she's supposed to be like double-ish the size she is now, but I feel like maybe cause she was the runt, she might stay smaller. I can't imagine her being that big! That's funny you had a similar experience, like it wasn't planned ^^; Also funny how she's a total diva too like mine xD Is your's still skittish?
