NY-Craigslist-Rochester YARD SALE Guinea pig

Greece (Rochester), NY: As I said with our last yard sale guinea pig, this is just setting up for a disastrous impulse buy. "Guinea pig (with cage and accessories)." 9AM-5PM, from Thursday to Sunday.

Do me a favor, dear reader, if you are near this neighborhood but aren't able to save the guinea pig yourself, could you print out and place a GuineaLynx Care Guide near the cage (with permission)? And make sure s/he's not out in the sun? If the guinea pig is, try and convince the owners to put him inside, perhaps with a sign saying there's a guinea pig indoors. Failing that, move piggy into the shade.

* AAGP recommends quarantining any new guinea pigs
for 2-3 weeks and confirming the sex yourself.
Many sad accidents or "accidents" can be avoided this way. *
