Formerly called Snowball, Phineas Quentin Butterfat was born circa November 2005. He was given to the North Jersey Guinea Pig and Hamster Rescue by a woman who rescued him and his friends but was unable to find homes for them all.
He was fostered by a family of animal lovers in Rockaway, NJ until one day a couple of cavy lovers came looking for a new friend to warm their home.
Rae & Chris (a.k.a. the Bear) immediately fell in love with Phineas and his buddy Bobby, and were brought home on May 27, 2007. He now lives a life of luxury, feasting on greens, fruits, Timothy hay, pellets, and the occasional Critter Berries.
Robert Oreo Goren (formerly known as Sooty) was born on April 18, 2007 at the North Jersey Guinea Pig and Hamster Rescue. He was placed in a foster home with his adopted Uncle Phin, who is very protective of him.
When he arrived home on May 27, 2007, he followed Phineas around their temporary cage, mimicking his uncle's every move. As time goes by, Bobby is living up to his namesake with his curiosity and disregard for the rules.
He spends his days popcorning around the bachelor pad and lounging in his sofa chair.
