A pair of guinea pigs born in RSPCA care have yet to be re-homed almost 18 months later because they are too ‘ugly’. As a result, brothers Dribble and Tribble have become almost unintended permanent residents at the charity’s Canterbury animal centre. The pair enjoy munching on their veggies, exploring the dens and tunnels in their pod and chattering with each other in their run. Beth says they will need a home with plenty of space and enrichment and an owner who can continue to build their confidence as they are a little nervous.

I adopted a guinea pig from shelter and was told she is pregnant. We don’t know her due date but would like to know what signs to watch for before she gives birth. Guinea pigs, also known as cavies, are relatively unique compared to most of our household pets because their young are precocious. This means that the babies are born fully furred with their eyes and ears open, teeth erupted and are able to walk around shortly after birth.

They start eating solid food when they are a few days old but also need to nurse for about three weeks. The fact that they are so mature at birth means that the newborns are very large compared to their mother. It is not uncommon for babies to get stuck in the birth canal during delivery. For this reason, it is important that you keep a close eye on your guinea pig as she gets close to giving birth.

We work very hard to match the right pet to both your needs based on your home and work life but also the needs of the animal making sure that we are finding a home they will be the happiest in. The project will help us to better promote the welfare needs of cats through:. Not all cats are suited to the family domestic life. Some are not pets in the way we have to understand them, However, through no fault of their own these cats often end up in rehoming centres which they find incredibly stressful.

We are hoping to work within our community to find homes that suit the needs of these cats — meaning they may not even have to enter a rehoming centre at all. We are looking for stables, farm yards, small holdings, large areas of land and large gardens with outdoor shelter that would be able to support the lifestyle these cats require. This often means minimal human interaction with some of them but they will need a little care and supervision to make sure they are safe, have sheltered and are healthy.

If you have a suitable outdoor space and would be interested in finding out more about rehoming a cat with these needs please email: alternativelifestyles rspca-canterbury. Rehoming Rescue Animals. The Rehoming Process. Our rehoming process is as follows: Make an appointment to come and visit the rehoming centre by calling or emailing info rspca-canterbury.
