NY-Craigslist-Four Listings

*If responding to an ad by an individual, meet in a public place
or go with a friend. Google the phone number of the poster to

ensure it matches the name he or she gives *

LISTING REMOVED Ontario, NY: Two female guinea pigs being rehomed due to too many pets. Eight months old, and very sociable. One is an orange american shorthair, the other is a black and brown american crested. Must be adopted together. Reasonable rehoming fee.

LISTING REMOVED West Islip (on Long Island), NY: Three year old boar comes with a "huge cage" and accessories. The guinea pig is very tame and never bites. Being rehomed because the children have lost interest since the poster got a new pet.

LISTING REMOVED Penfield (near Rochester), NY: Ten month old guinea pig (male) being rehomed, comes with cage and food dish. Very friendly once he gets used to you. Mostly black with a little white and light brown.

LISTING REMOVED Eastern Long Island, NY: "I purchased a guinea pig from a pet store and it had four little babies [. A]ccording to the internet they are old enough to leave the mother at four weeks and they are almost five weeks old now." PREGNANCY ALERT. GUINEA PIG LESSON: It's not a matter of guinea pigs being "old enough" to leave their mom, it's a matter of them HAVING to leave their mothers in order to avoid back br33ding them, and for the babies to avoid br33ding each other. Baby guinea pigs are sexually mature at THREE WEEKS. Most likely the mother guinea pig is pregnant, and there is a high chance any females in the litter are also pregnant, and it will be very difficult for her to deliver these pups. Potential angel work if you take a sow from this litter! (Boy or Girl? )
