My turn! My turn! The world’s first blogging Patagonian Cavy! My name is Miss Pris. In case you missed Dionysus’s blog last week, the animals of CLAWS are having a competition to see which team can get all its members sponsored first. The furs are going for a triple header this week. My cage mates, Sissy and Sam, and I hope to all find sponsors this week. Me first, of course. But for those who are too slow to act and miss out on me can still be the proud sponsor of a Patagonian Cavy.
We are unusual animals. Give me a set of antlers and I’ll do my Jackalope impression! We are the second largest members of the rodent family. Not quite an ROUS (Rodents of Unusual Size), but close.
I love living here at CLAWS! Lots of fresh air and sunshine. In my former life, I was an apartment pet of a young woman in
That is one of the things they do here, take in animals like me who used to belong to people that didn’t know what they were getting themselves into. Here I can be a Patagonian Cavy. I have lots of things to chew on, proper food to eat, and friends. I was lucky. Some people who get unusual animals think they can just “return us to the wild” when we become inconvenient. Since I have never been wild, that would be very scary for me. I wouldn’t have the first clue how to get my own food and stuff. Plus, I’m not from here. I don’t belong in the “wilds” of North America, and it is way too far to walk to
Since I was raised as a pet, I am quite friendly. You humans aren’t all bad. I hope there is someone out there who likes large friendly rodents and wants to sponsor me. Please think about it. It will help CLAWS continue to help animals like me that need a safe place to live.
Thanks for caring!
