Social Pet Saturday: Guinea Pig Edition

Hi everyone - welcome to Social Pet Saturday. This week, I've got lots of cute stuff from our small furry friends that I think you'll enjoy. Plus some other goodies! If you haven't read some of the things mentioned below, be sure to check them out! 



  • Winter and Rocco are two super adorable Roborovski hamsters from the blog Unexpected Hamsters. Earlier this week, they shared a video of themselves running super fast on their saucer - you just have to see it to know how crazy fast these little cuties run. 
  • So I'm sure you've heard this at least once this summer - "Don't leave your dog out in the sun!" Well, the guinea pigs over at Hutch a Good Life want to make sure guinea pigs get the same kind of treatment. They shared some great advice about guinea pigs and hot weather because many guinea pigs like to go out in hutches during warmer months. 
  • Our friend Molly the Wally dedicated a post to us this week. A suit of guinea pig armor is selling for 5 figures online. Check out Molly's post to see just how much money. Of course, it's all for a good cause. I would love one of these for Nibblet! 

That's it for this weekend. Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for some more fun stuff! And stay cool this weekend - it's hot out there!

  5. TW is laughing so hard at that video that she almost fell off the chair. Then she had Pop laughing at it. She didn't think little feet could go that fast.

  10. That is great picture of the hamster. Hamsters really are cute. We have never had one but they look like fun.
    Baby Doll sure does thank you so much for putting the word out about her. She really is a nice cat. Hope all of you have a great day.

  11. You know, I've never thought about how heat affects other pets besides cats and dogs (what we have in our home). Good to know.

    Thanks for all the great links; I'm hiding from the sun and need some reading material.

    1. I've experienced firsthand how heat effects small mammals especially. Their temperatures are very touchy! They can also be extremely sensitive to cold weather as well.
