This week’s Pet of the Week from the Waterford branch of the CT Humane Society is Rathbert!
Rathbert is a 1 year-, 3 month-old male guinea pig. Guinea pigs make great pets, as they are docile and relatively easy to care for.
They are curious critters and enjoy exploring, especially when on familiar territory.
They also need Vitamin C, and as such require special food, including fresh veggies!
On average, guinea pigs weigh 2 pounds and live for 6-8 years.
If you have any questions on Rathbert or any of the other animals at the shelter,
give them a call at (860) 442-8583, check out their
website at www.cthumane.org, or stop in at 169 Old Colchester Road in Quaker Hill.
