The story of a tornado, a family, a dog, rats, a herd of guinea pigs and an online community. [30 Apr 2011|09:38pm]

Please read this amazing blog post about our own Marsha Weaver. The story of a tornado, a family, a dog, rats, a herd of guinea pigs and an online community.

To update those who may not have heard: 4 guinea pigs have been found alive and 3 dead. There is 1 still missing, but they're not sure who as one body isn't currently identifiable. 6 or 7 rats out of 16 have been found, 3 alive. Their dog has a severe foot infection and will be getting skull x-rays. Marsha and her daughter are both out of the hospital now and doing well.

The following is my paraphrasing of a long update Marsha's sister posted on GL tonight:
It turns out that the family was literally caught with zero warning (no tornado warnings for their area) when their house started shaking and literally flying apart around them. They took cover in the hallway they were already near and were literally lifted up in the air and set back down. The daughter was pretty seriously injured and seemed to be in a state of shock. After the tornado passed, they ran over to a neighbor's car that was unlocked to take shelter and finding the keys in the ignition, turned on the radio just in time to hear that another tornado was heading directly for them. They fled to the home of a neighbor down the street who had a basement where they rode out the storm until they could safely get to a hospital.

These photos make it so clear how very lucky they are to all be alive right now:

This is their home before, taken this past Christmas.

This is what is left.

A friend from the rescue community (GuineaLynx) lost her home to a tornado last night. The family escaped, but her daughter is in the hospital with a broken shoulder and is on oxygen for some kind of lung injury. Her dog was injured and may have lost an eye. All of her 8 guinea pigs and several rats are assumed missing or dead. The house was wiped to the foundation. This woman gave a lot to the rescue community and even ran a business out of her home making small animal accessories with sales benefiting guinea pig and rat rescues. Please visit the following link if you are interested in donating to help the family get back on their feet. Right now, all they have are the clothes on their backs and one cell phone. Their cars were destroyed as well.


These are the babies that we don't think made it out. :(

Pigture Request [09 Jun 2009|01:40pm]

Hay guys. I'm working on a drawing involving piggies, and I need some help on getting photo refs. If any of y'all happen to have pics lying around of teen- to adult-sized folks sitting and holding a guinea pig, could you please send 'em my way? If you're worried about privacy, please feel free to cover faces or whatever- I mainly need the body.

Thanks in advance!

Our newest, and probable last (for now!), baby. :) He's not really a "baby" persay -- We adopted this (approximately) one year old fella about three weeks ago. He's a beaut!

Tsunami!Collapse )

We have six other girls that will consist of Tsu's harem. He has met them informally, but not yet as a group. We expect proper introductions next week. :D

Even more pigtures! [11 May 2008|05:09pm]

I just thought I'd share something I found with all you other pigaholics.

I use Flickr for all my photographs which I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with ... I just discovered a group - Guinea Pig Lovers so now you can share and see even more lovely piggie posers :)

I don't mod the group and I'm not trying to advertise - I just thought a lot of you would be interested and get a lot of enjoyment out of it too. I was overloaded with cute within the first page!
