Yes, gentle readers this would appear to the the case. Christina, the lovely proprietress of Usha Veda Yoga writes (to yours truly and Jen G. at Greenpointers):

Hey lovely blogging ladies.

I hope all is well.  Jen, congrats on your fund raising for Sandy.  Heather, good luck with the move.  I am writing because every time I go into Animal Planet this week I want to take home this cute little ginea pig that someone left behind in a shoe box after asking Mo to go in the back for birdseed and then disappearing.

He is loved by the owner who is committed to finding him a good home but can’t remain there as they have cats both at the store and in their own home.  If you could share this maybe someone will happily adopt him.  He is free but the crate belongs to the store.  I held him for quite awhile and can assure you that he doesn’t bite or poop on you! Thanks!

So there have you. Anyone interested in providing this critter a home should swing by Animal Planet:

UPDATE, November 11, 2012: I just got word this fella (yes, it is a boy) gal has a new home. Hooray!

UPDATE, November 21, 2012: It turns out “he” was in fact a she. This was discerned after “he” gave birth to a litter of more furry cuteness!


Tell me what you're thinking...
