Cavy Care

The kids and I spent some time today on cavy care (guinea pigs). Evan and I cleaned out the cage and vacuumed up the floor. We gave both of them baths. Pippin is placid and no problem. Merry, however, is a fighter. He has the longest hair which involves dealing with matting. He struggled through the whole process, and at times, both Evan and I had to work with him. (And why, oh why do they still smell some after their bath?) I brushed them out and dried them partially with a hairdryer. Now they have a towel in which to burrow in their cage. They are getting so large that we need to build a new cage for them.

The kids have begun listening to the unabridged version of The Hobbit on CD today.
