Sparkle is a Cavie

Guinea Pigs are called Cavies and they are so neat. I thought you would like to see a photo of Sparkle. We just adopted her over Thankgsiving. I had her in the bathtub this morning while we cleaned her cage. She loves all the dried flowers and plants that I have on hand. I like to gather wild flowers and things like this for teas for winter time. She is eating them up and she loves them. Well, I can see I have to dry a LOT more plants next summer just to keep her well fed over the winter months with things she really enjoys eating. Have you ever gathered flowers and made teas from them? Oh, it is wonderful. We especially love to gather large red clovers, Heal-All flowers, Mullen leaves (for colds), and Spearment. Sparkle is crazy about them as you can see. Isn't she a cutie?

What a cutie pie. My sil used to have hamsters and guinea pigs and they are wonderful pets. I wonder how my cats would like them? Probably not a good mix.

Love your scarf from the scarf exchange.
