Videos of Java:

From a posting on Craigslist, I saw a picture of a two-month guinea pig that was up for adoption in Brooklyn. I went to see her the following day and saw that she was sharing a store-bought cage with three of her siblings, her mother and father, and another adult guinea pig. I took her in that same day.

When I brought her home, she moved cautiously while feeling her new habitat. The enclosure is three times bigger than the cage she was born in. She was also gradually introduced to her cage mates PC and PS3. Within a week, she was zooming up and down the two-level living space. This guinea pig seems faster and more agile than the other two. It's as if she's wired on caffeine. And that's why she is named Java.

Java is two and half years old now. She is a smart cavy. She knows that when I say "Down", she would go down from the second deck. And "Java Up" (like an Android app), she'd go up to the second level. During cage cleaning or play time, when I say "Come" she'd walk to my hand so I can bring her back to the cage. Maybe I can teach her how to make coffee someday soon.
