from CA rescue
Eros came to Wee Companions through a long and assorted journey.Though we are not sure how old he is, he moves and acts like an old
man that has been given a new lease on life.
Wee Companions was contacted by a local San Diego dog and cat rescue
that had recently been involved with removing animals from a hoarder.
In the midst of the menagerie, there was one orange and white guinea
pig. He was found outside in a wire cage that had sodden, rotting
cardboard on the bottom. The only food in his cage was cheep cat food
and whatever blades of grass could grow through the wires. When the
dog and cat folk got there, they gracious look the little guinea man
too, and then sought specialized help for him. Wee Companions went to
pick up this little man on Valentine's Day, and his name was
officially christened, Eros.
Even though Eros was safe in loving arms, it was touch and go for a
few weeks. To this day, Eros cannot stomach a lot of vegetables and
isn't quite used to the idea of eating hay, so his GI Tract has good
and bad days. Eros still suffers from terrible arthritis, so much so,
that if he doesn't get his pain meds, he is unable to use his back
legs. Now, many months later, after his bath, a round of antibiotics
and anti-parasitics, living on soft and clean fleece, given all the
hay/pellets/water he desires, and getting arthritis medicine daily,
Eros can move freely and has learned that the human hand brings nose
"scritches" not fear.
Eros now lives at one of Wee Companions sanctuary/hospice homes where
he is pampered day in and out. Because he was so compromised, his
monthly upkeep is about $200, due to the medicines and comfort care.
Thank you for giving Eros another chance to live passionately!
