A portrait of Lilly from the Fort Simpson Bulletin Facebook page.
Lilly the guinea pig, a true northerner, has turned to a Fort Simpson Facebook group to find herself a new home.
“When Lilly decided that she wanted to move out, of course I encouraged her and offered to support her decision in every way possible,” said her current roommate, Trevor Ryhorchuk, in a heartfelt testimonial posted online.
Ryhorchuk told Cabin Radio he doesn’t feel he is able to invest enough time in caring for Lilly, which may have prompted Lilly to declare she was leaving him.
“My hope is that there’s someone or a family that can give her that attention.”
Ryhorchuk, who inherited Lilly in October, estimates she is around a year old.
