Ben & Donald’s owner contacted for help as they didn’t have the time any more to look after them, the garden was constantly water logged so they couldn’t graze and they weren’t being handled due to a busy working family life.
Donald is the mostly white one. They are outdoor Cavies so will need a decent sized hutch and run. Ben is affectionate and like cuddles and Donald is shy and timid and would benefit from being handled more. They have been used to children but due to Donald’s shyness he must be handled in the right way so wouldn’t suit young children and a pet free home is a must. They have been health checked by our vet, Ben does have mites so both are being treated, it’s normally down to poor hygiene/quality bedding and/or stress. They now have the correct bedding (dust free hay only-NOT wood shavings/sawdust and straw-photo with wood shavings taken in previous home) and we are weaning them onto the correct diet of nuggets as opposed to muesli. We often find families take on Cavies for children who then get uninterested very quickly hence needing to be rehomed down the line so we’d like to find them a forever loving and committed home!
