Daphne (left) with us during 2018

Daphne was a black and pale ginger short haired female guinea pig. She came to us in June 2018 with her friend Annie when their owner was struggling to cope with them on top of all her other caring responsibilities. She was born in roughly 2015. She has settled well into the guinea pig shed with all her new friends and is making the most of communal life.

Sadly Daphne began losing weight shortly after she arrived. This appeared to stop and she even gained some back but it turned out that it was fluid building up as she had congestive heart failure and was not a good sign after all. She died in Oct 2018. I suspect she was actually older than previously thought.
