Everybody Loves Carrots
The girls do enjoy the guinea pigs. Josie is always talking about getting them out of their cage and how they like to eat carrots and like to eat grass. She calls them communally, oreo-mellow. Lucy held Oreo for a long time on Saturday morning while they both enjoyed their organic carrots from the farmers market.
Then the boys went out into the yard for some good grass. I usually keep a close eye on them when they are in the yard to make sure that Kathmandu or Katafanga don't come by and try to eat them. Mitch is going to build them a carnivore proof run one of these days but we haven't gotten around to it yet. Saturday morning I got distracted and looked out to find the picture below. Thankfully Katafanga is old (13) and lazy and considers the boys more of guinea pig t.v. than an actual meal.
One last guinea pig note: I like to sing to the girls, "Who let the boys out? Josie, Josie did." And now whenever I say, "Who let the boys out?" Josie always yells: "Josie did!!"
