I read craigslist like people read the morning paper. That's just me. Take a gander at this --
WANTED: Guinea pig and/or supplies! (Chicago (willing to travel))
Date: 2012-11-05, 9:51PM CST
Hello! I'm new to Chicago and I have been looking for a pet guinea pig. I had one as a kid and absolutely loved it. My mom has the cage, water bottle, food dishes, etc., but she lives very far away, so I won't be able to get them til Thanksgiving, and I don't want to wait that long! So if anyone has any supplies for a small pet (ESPECIALLY a cage or aquarium) that they no longer need, I'd love to hear what you have for sale/free!
I do have a guinea pig I may adopt, but if you have one you need or want to get rid of that can come with a cage, that would be excellent! I do prefer a baby so it will grow up knowing me, but a little older is fine if it's friendly and healthy!
As for me, I am a 22y/o female, and I live with a roommate in an apartment where we are allowed to have pets. I've had pets of all varieties growing up and am very kind and never mistreat my pets. I promise I will not use it for food or breeding - I just want one to love and spoil! :)
People just piss me off. I understand wanting something for a reasonable price, but give me a break. And she definitely did not say thanksgiving, she said a week or so. No wonder she told me that if someone else wanted the guinea pig to adopt it out.
