February 11th, 2016 we met a lovely family who needed to re-home their 2 bonded female Guinea Pigs. The mom has Cystic Fibrosis and was told that if she needs a lung replacement she would be denied because of the type of pets she had. Wow, eh? I can't even imagine.
So, there we were meeting this family. I felt good for being able to help out on one hand, but SO guilty on the other. Especially when their daughter was crying and holding one of the piggies.
Then, there was another aspect. Our daughter was going to be SO excited. We kept the actual animal type a secret and she couldn't wait to get home from school to find out. Her friends were asking her repeatedly what they were... and then me as well at pick up time. They are so sweet and fun to watch. Willow loves to cuddle and pet them. They make the most unusual and amazing sounds when they are happy.
