Happy New Year

It's been a long time since I've updated this blog, or since I've fostered guinea pigs and hamsters. Between the economy and my then-job, it was difficult to manage. My boys remained with me, of course, and I gave them every bit of attention I could whenever I was free. Bobby died at a bit over 3 years of age August 3, 2010, and I miss him dearly. Phin is still alive, and is now 5 as of November 2010. He's an old timer! He's enjoying being cranky and spoiled.

I don't know if I'll return to fostering guinea pigs (I can possibly foster hamsters without issue), but I do want to write about Mr. Butterfat a bit more. Since he's in what may be his twilight years, I want to capture him as much as I can. He'll be my last guinea pig for a long time, if ever. My love of cavies is as strong as ever, but my allergies to them have worsened over the years. As much as I enjoy my time with Phin, it usually results in me breaking out in hives and hyperventilating.

So here's to a year of good times and good memories, of health and happiness, for all of us.
