Fairy is what is known as a Lethal White Guinea Pig. She basically has a genetic ‘fault’ due to certain breeding conditions. She is blind and deaf and like many LW’s she has problems with her teeth. Because of the way they are formed they require regular trimming as they do not meet and therefore just keep growing.
LW’s tend to be quite high maintenance (even more so than a regular guinea – yes really!) and their life expectancy tends to be less than normal too. We are so proud that Fairy will be 3 in June!

We thought it would be a lovely way to celebrate her Big day by asking friends to donate just 3 £ or $ in her name. We chose Wee Companions because they in turn support a small rescue establishment, Cavy Castle. Julie at Cavy Castle has 7 Lethal White guineas in her loving and expert care.
If anyone would like to donate to Wee Companions, or if they would rather donate to a different guinea pig charity, then we would be thrilled to bits and would like to say ‘thank you’ in advance.
