Sparkey the guinea pig:
I was absolutely not going to get any more pets, even though our collection of elderly animals is dwindling, but some friends of ours were giving him away and he was so little and cute, so now we have two piggies again. They can't live together, of course, because Penny is an old lady and Sparkey is a little boy, but it turns out Sparkey hasn't spent more than a few hours in his little cage in the four days he's been here.
Here he is exploring the house:

Life is good for the Jacobs piggies. :)
