Choose Adoption // Introducing Chaya

About a month ago, we lost our guinea pig child Loverboy. It was really tough for us, but even tougher for Nala…Loverboy was her best friend, and as really social animals guinea pigs don’t do well alone. She spent the past month sitting in one corner of her cage, just staring for hours. We knew… Read more »

Saying goodbye.

Anyone who owns pets knows that they’re your children; they are such a part of your life that you literally cannot imagine being without them, despite knowing that their life spans are so short compared to ours. This weekend, we had to say goodbye to our little guinea pig guy, Loverboy. Back when I was in… Read more »

I am tired.
