Sabina the Guinea Pig

When I was 10 or eleven I was permitted to have a guinea pig.  When I got Sabina I did not know that she was expecting.  I came down in the morning to feed her and there was a little miniature with her.  Unlike gerbils and mice and rabbits a guinea pig is fully furred and able to run around the cage a short while after birth.  I was very excited.  Sabina was a good friend.  She would shriek when she heard the refrigerator door open.  She was looking for a hand out of celery.  I learned that there are certain greens not allowed with guinea pigs.  Spinach and rhubarb will make them sick and could kill them.

 
I recall that my Mom and I found Sabina a new home.  The new family had her for years.
