Bonded with Batman

Hi, we are Batman and HeartHeart! We are a sweet pair of bonded 9 month old Guinea pigs. We found ourselves in rescue because we were terrified of the toddler in our previous home.  Like most Guinea pigs, we startle easily, and need some space between us and kids who haven’t learned to be gentle yet.

Because we are so shy, our foster momma put our cage in the living room so we can be in the center of the action. Now, after just a week, we are settling in and becoming curious and playful in our new surroundings.

We are very fast and it can take a minute to catch us and pick us up - but once you are holding us securely, we enjoy gentle scratches and climbing around you to explore. 
 
We love to be together, and run around our cage chattering and playing. We love fresh vegetables like romaine lettuce, red peppers, strawberries, apples, and carrots! We are very easy pets, who would be perfect for gentle children. And as a bonus, our previous home sent our huge cage and additional enclosure (can be attached to the cage for more play space, or used to take us outside to nibble grass) and these will go with us to our new home!
