Well, it looks like our dog plan is on hold until the spring or so but what do you think about guinea pigs??
This idea came up during a trip to PetSmart in St. Louis. Yes, we have started going to pet stores for fun. Hey, it's free entertainment. I practically have to drag Jonah out of there!!!
So we were looking at all the pets and decided that a guinea pig may be a good pet for now.
Well, Shu doesn't want any part in this but that's ok. I can handle feeding and changing the cage and playing with it. It definitly doesn't take as much work as a dog does. That I couldn't do on my own.
Anywhoo, Jonah LOVES animals of any sort (he also loves babies but............) so why not get a pet? Also, I grew up with all kinds of pets and I REALLY miss having them around.
So, I hope the possible guinea pigs won't keep any of you away........
I may go to the Tiny Paws Rescue which is a place that deals with little animals and finding them homes. Also, they have a Foster program so you can try the pet out for 30 days and return it if you don't like it.
Two of the guinea pigs they currently have are a mom and baby, Goldie and Sunshine. I think they are pretty cute. Maybe they will come home with us soon....................
And on a sort-of different topic, today was a GORGEOUS day and since I didn't have to be at work until 12, Jonah and I made a quick run to the zoo. We only had about 40 minutes but it was just enough time to spend in the butterfly and bird house. Very cool. I LOVE being zoo members!
