Hi! My name is In Memory of Chester.

I am an American Guinea Pig from Novato.

5 years old


Fat Boy! I know it is not a nice nickname but my human does love me dearly.

Brown/White Teddy

I like to sit on my human's shoulder, the back of the couch or inside my pigloo.

My owner did not disown me when I started wheeking at first light every morning and I love her for it!

Like all Guinea Pigs I love to eat! I get to do it all day because I am Hypoglycemic!

My quirky little habbit is wheeking at the crack of dawn!

Who do you think I resemble?

I hate to have my nails trimmed and sudden loud noises.

I'm too cute for words!

While you are a cute little guy, what really caught my attention is your name. In Memory of Chester is different than most names.

  RIP Chester
He too was a great little pig: Chester lived with me his whole life. Chester was hypoglycemic and thanks to Oxbow Guinea Pig food he lived a happy healthy life for almost 6 years!

Awww, Chester you are sooo cute! I'm a teddy TOO! My owner says she wishes SHE could adopt you (even though she already takes care of the three of us)! Are you still up for adoption? You, Honey AND Fuji are ALL looking for homes? Wowza! I wish my owner could get ALL of you! I'm feeling kinda left out in my trio, so my owner wants to get me a buddy! See yas laters!

Good to hear from you guys and it's good to hear that you are helpin' someone who lost a loved one by bein' there to pet!'re mom shouldn't be embarrassed that viv gained a little weight...although to us ferrets, two pounds is A LOT of weight. I'm not sure if it's the same for rabbits, but the weight means that she was loved! As long as she wasn't fat! Not much has changed for us. We're havin' some good times and not gettin' into too much trouble...just enough to be ferrets. Anyway-time to go okay? Glad to hear from you!! Talk to you soon!

  We Are Back!!
We are back from camping and had to get online! We had so much fun up in the mountains...we waled around and sniffed so many new plants and some other smells we don't know what they belonged to. We saw people that we haven't seen in awhile so that was nice! We went across a river and saw some wolf tracks! My human said that was cool! We think that maybe the wolf had caught something...I guess wild wolfs have to catch their food! Boy they have it rough! Plus there were some deer tracks right there was exciting. Really we just hung out, had some food that we probably weren't supposed to hee hee! and just loved the sun and the mountain air! Our human had a good time too...she says that drama's bound to come up when all the family's together that long, but all in all it was nice! No cell phone or computer to bring her bad news...just the clean air, good company, and a few drinks! hee!hee! We all had a blast and I hope we can do it again sometime! As always a vote has been left!

  never offended!
We are happy when people ask these questions because it's better to ask and be corrected than to think you know and be wrong! In this case you are correct. We are from the mustelid family! Or the weasel family. It's a common misconception that we are from the rodent family...but we are weasels not rats! Other animals in our family are of course real weasels, skunks, badgers, mink, sea otters, river otters, and also the wolverine! There are more I'm sure, but that's all I know about! Oh! And of course our closest two species, the polecat and the black footed ferret! Mustelid is the family that have scent glands to protect ourselves, like the skunk. Unfortunately to us, but not unfortunately for our humans, domestic ferrets that come from a pet store usually have that removed before we are taken home! It would be kinda cool for us to be able to stink up the joint! That's also where our natural musky odor comes from. It's not strong when the scent glands are removed, but it is there and bothers some more than others...our humans says she doesn't even smell it...bless her heart! lol You guys are rodents correct? I could be wrong...that's why I ask! Ferret hugs for you!Dook ya later! Stinky, Smudge, and their humans!

  It's good to hear from you guys! It was interesting learning about what you eat. I didn't realize that you guys were so difficult as far as creating meals for you...of course our human gets asked all the time if we're good pets. She tells them the truth. She says that we are not for everyone and require lots of attention and work! It's all true! We are difficult if not trained and socialized...or our life span will be very short if we're not taken good care of. Well time for bed! Dook ya later! Smudge

  what a ferret eats...
it's will get used to'll be okay. As to what we eat, we're considered carnivores so meat is the main ingredient. well our normal diet consists of a dry food. Much like a dog or cats, but made just for us! It's mostly made of animal proteins and low fat and for treats, we have special treats that our humans get at the pet store. Our favorite is that one I'm reaching for. It's a chicken stick, and it's good for my teeth too! (Takes the plaque off...whatever that means) but we both also like our own things. I like bread! It's my favorite human food. We also like fruits. Smudge likes fruits especially grapes and he likes some human meats. We don't get too much human food though...there's no nutrition for us...only great taste! Oh! And we love popcorn, our humans make sure there's no butter and it's popped all the way for us.Oh! And peanut butter...only the creamy kind...we can't have nuts or anything dehydrated because it could get stuck in our digestive system because it's not there long enough to get hydrated to be digested. Our intestines are very narrow...well I think that's it. What about you guys? What are your favorite foods? Well time for a nap...later! Stinky...P.S. Smudgie says hello!

  sorry I didn't have much time earlier. But I did know that the humans needed to work to give us food. My human is always saying that we have to make it until "pay day". That's the day that their job gives them the money to "buy" food....did you know that your human also had to "buy" your cage, your dishes, and your litter box. She also bought the computer that we talk on! It's crazy, but it's a necessary evil! Like we said, you'll get used to it. Well dook ya later!
P.S. I love the pic in front of the computer. Apparently we need to get cool and get one of those ourselves huh? lol! Later!

  oh yes Chester...most humans do go to work during the day and then they play with us all night! You'll get used to it. It just sucks at first. My human said that because you're human is a teacher, you will learn to love what they call the weekend. It's a time when your human will have two whole days in a row to spend with you. She'll be a little busier, but I'm sure she loves you enough to make sure that you're taken care of and loved! I know that ours does...well anyway dook ya later!

  Hello Chester!!!!
Hello Chester! I appreciate your enthusiasm. As, I'm sure, do all of those ferret owners in CA who are breaking the law just to have a pet that they love. From what I know (and sometimes I wonder just how much that is...heehee) most ferrets that are in CA are people who moved there not knowing or people who have taken in an animal that had no place else to go. I'm sure there are a few who took in an animal they happened to find wandering in their yards too! I don't think that the animals are bought there unless they were bought in NV and smuggled in, but I wouldn't recommend that! A person that's caught with one there could have the animal confiscated and put down if they have no place out of the state to send it! There are options if you get caught and I'm sure that Thor sent you to great websites!! I know that is a good one! It will send you to different websites in different states if you want to look! Also, for info on ferrets, check out the ferretmagazine part of this site! It has lots of interesting things!! Well my dresser drawer is calling so I'm going to take a nap!! Dook ya later! Smudge

  As Thor probably told you, it's a very silly law in CA. We are illegal there because their fish and wildlife people have decided that we could go feral(that means create our own businesses in the is a name for a group of ferrets)and ruin their ecosystem(I think that's the name for all their wildlife and their habitats)first off, if we were bought at a pet store, we're already spayed or neutered....second, we're too small. I don't think that we could survive against all of their flying predators(my human says they have things called eagles, vultures, and owls)I looked them up! They're pretty scary!, I know that me personally, I couldn't survive without my humans...they're very important to me! But here I am on a tangent, that if you looked at those websites, you already knew....well it was nice to meet you!! And I hope to talk to you soon Chester!!! Smudge...Stinky says hello too!!
