Things I learned today.....
1. Guinea pigs, want to lay on your chest, not in your lap. Too far away..
2. They refuse to lay on the towel for this purpose, they must be able to put their hair on your clothes.
3. No matter how many times you pick them up they will run.
4. If you want them to sit on you, pick them up when they have been napping, not when they are running around the cage. (play mode)
and 5. they are the cutest things on the planet..
