Big Guinea Pig, Mini Guinea Pig Plus Gifts

Here's the latest photo of my little Rufus, the new guinea pig we added to our family. He's in his 6 foot by 3 foot pen, now lined in green tie-dye fleece.


He loves to snuggle and purr and adds so much joy to our lives. My husband says that his front feet look like little stars. Awww!


My friend Pam made a miniature version of Rufus, but try as I might, I can't get a good photo of him. I'll keep trying and show you later. :-)

Look! I received some lovely advent gifts from Irina of Narina Napertaa blog--a total surprise! So many cute, colorful, cheery things that I can use in Cupcake Cottage and elsewhere. Thank you so much, Irina! Your gifts are really beautiful and thoughtful.


Until next time, keep the fun going! xoxo Jennifer

  17. Rufus is so cute and looks like my guinea pig 'Dino'. I found two baby guinea pigs in a box in 4 weeks ago underneath the bushes. A girl and a boy. I had to bring the girl to a special guineapig shelter because they can get pregnant very early. The boy is a real ( not very guineapig like) baby. He is cuddles and lays on his back with his feet completely stretched out and wants me to touch his belly. I'll post a picture on my blog this week. Rufus could have been Dino's big brother haha they have the same haircut.

    Enjoy your little lovely creature and am curious to his 1:12 version
