Hello, and welcome to Autumn!

Thank you to everyone who sent me get-well cards and thoughtful notes during my recovery. I am very happy to say that my spine surgery went splendidly, the healing process was very smooth, and I am back to rather-normal! I am starting to swim three times per week, and I am still seeking a full-time job. Naturally, I'm also thinking of Halloween....

Trick or Treat!

Since I have some rather large medical bills from the surgery, I am going to shamelessly plug my Halloween cozies. I only have three of the purple ones left, and eight of the brown ones! So these are definitely limited quantities. My mother is working on new patterns, and those should be out by December. 
Please stop by the CavyMadness shop and get a head start on your holiday CavyCozy gifts; you'll be helping me in the process! :)

2017 Pet Piggies on Parade -


These guinea pigs will make your day.

The online cavy community is filled with talented people! This month, I would love to introduce you to two of them...
Dragonfly Lampworks
Heather Sellers of Dragonfly Lampworks crafts some amazing glass beads, including guinea pig beads! Heather donates most of her beads via giving works programs such as Beads of Courage, providing arts-in-medicine for children with serious illness, and various animal rescue organizations. California Bay area North Star Rescue currently has Heather's Roomba-riding shark guinea pig (!) and a beautiful carrot pendant necklace up for auction, but you must grab them before September 10th!

Guinea Pig Wonderland on Facebook
Sarah, like most of us, takes a lot of photos of her guinea pigs. In fact, she takes so many photos and videos that her friends convinced her to start a Facebook page!
With over 100,000 views and counting, this adorable watermelon video has introduced these cute -and hungry- guinea pigs to the world. "I am a bit overwhelmed how many people shared and watched it, it really blew up! ... I am so happy that so many people like it," Sarah told me when I requested to feature her pigs on CavyMadness. Thank you, Sarah, for sharing!

Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking - blog
Does your guinea pig go nuts when you refill the hay rack? Boadicea is entertaining with her filling-the-racks antics in  "Anticipation" (September 3), and in "Wedgwood Update" (August 31), we see the slightly-neurotic new kid's personality begin to emerge as she hits the three-month mark.

"Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking" is CavyMadness' partner-blog, by the hilarious and talented Sally Hurley.
Helping All Little Things guinea pig rescue
Help needed: Helping All Little Things, a guinea pig rescue in New Jersey, needs immediate help with medical treatment costs for dozens of piggies from a serious hoarding case. Donate to HALT's Emergency Medical Fund to help the shelter care and re-home these guinea pigs. Every little bit helps!
