Since this is a blog I'll also use it for other things than writing down that sad part of my life, and here's a post of another kind.
The Björklund Lehto family was expanded a bit two days ago when Kili & Fili entered our home. I've missed having these little talkative creatures around since our little Berris passed away, so it's good to once more have adorable guinea pigs with us.
Kili was the reason why it happened at all. I fell for him a couple of weeks ago when spotting him in the pet store where we were getting some hay for our bunnies. I couldn't get him out of my mind but decided to try forgetting him anyway, what with a bunch of bunnies and a hamster at home it might be a bit crowded already. This week he was still at the pet shop, and it ended with me not getting proper sleep one night, arguing with myself about how it wouldn't be great to bring more pets around the house. Well, seems like I did a bad job arguing the downsides... And when my husband said I should think of how much in guinea pig love I was, well, then it was really settled. Guinea guys it was!
Fili was then chosen out of the two guinea pigs remaining in the store, since guinea pigs should not be kept alone. He is such a sweetheart! While Kili seems to be the boss while also being adorable and cuddly (though for a shorter moment of time), Fili seems to enjoy hanging out on the sofa for a longer time and is less cautious when on the floor. Or how about yesterday's cuddle marathon of an hour, I think he broke any previous guinea pig cuddle record I've had. Maybe he is just too terrified to object the cuddling sooner than that? Time will tell :) They are adorable and I am very happy that they're part of our family now.
