Ben’s Story

Adopted from Oceanside Campus

I picked up Ben from San Diego Humane Society in Oceanside last year. I’ll never underestimate the charm and affection a guinea pig possesses ever again. Ben knows my moods and is a true comfort by putting his little warm body where it is most needed. If I can’t sleep, I grab Ben and he cuddles and purrs until I fall asleep. Guinea pigs make surprisingly wonderful pets. When I go to pet Ben, he puts his little head under my hand and wants me to massage his whole furry little body.  Ben needs a job as “Stress Relief Animal” since he’ll cuddle up to just about anyone. We love Ben and we’re so glad that SDHS had a place for him until we found him.

Thanks again for Ben,
