Blind guinea pig and ‘guide’ sister in hunt for new home after RSPCA take them in
The animals need rehoming together, after a charity took them in due to their owner being unable to care for them.
A totally blind guinea pig and her sister that helps guide her around are in need of a new home after being taken in by the RSPCA.
Ami, a six-year-old black guinea pig, relies on her sister, Yuki, for help due to her condition.
They were taken in by the animal charity’s Danaher Animal Home in Essex earlier this year, after their owner could no longer care for them.
“Poor Ami also has a little head tilt caused by a previous ear problem,” said supervisor Craig Horsler.
“But her health problems don’t cause her any pain and certainly don’t slow her down, thanks to Yuki’s support.
Ami is always the first to emerge when she hears the rustle of a bag of treats but waits for Yuki to seek them out so she can follow her lead. It’s adorable to watch.
“Yuki is more than happy to be her sister’s eyes and looks out for her every day.”
