    Default Because every Guinea pig needs a suit of armor!

    This has to be one of the most unusual listings on EBay....a suit of armor for a Guinea pig!

    Awesome. All proceeds go to the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue. And yes, there are very active and responsible guinea pig advocates and rescues out there, so before you buy in a petstore, think of the poor breeder pigs doomed to live a miserable life in a tiny Tupperware box. Instead, adopt! You'll get a guaranteed healthy pig and a guaranteed sex of the pig (no "oops" from so many store bought pigs).

    You guys are going to *love* this story. I had a friend who did guinea pig rescue & she once pig-sat for a fellow cavy fancier. Woman arrived with pig & a large book on Baroque art. She left specific instructions that book was to be propped by cage & opened to pg xx for a minimum of time each day, then switched to pg xy, then pg xz...b/c pig enjoyed looking at pics of Baroque art.

    I am not sure how this woman discovered that pig preferred Baroque art. She claimed that pig did not like any other type. Screw those impressionists.

    and you thought horse ppl were nuts

    I heard about this on CNN this morning. LOL
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    Bet he has to weed thru a few impulse bidders before one actually pays for that. I do admire the craftmanship...
