@jayeless They are impossible not to love. They have lots of personality, and their cuteness factor is off the charts. And you get attached to the little tribbles. My previous guinea pig Rosie lived to be 8.5 years old. Six years old is not bad. Ada always had health issues--the vet was nearly sure she had lymphoma when she was two. But I would have liked to have had her bossing me around for another couple years.
