Two cute guinea pigs which were bizarrely abandoned alongside a curry and naan bread outside a pet shop are now looking for a new home.

T The 10-month-old rodents named Tikka and Masala were taken to a Blue Cross rehoming centre where they are now being cared for in the centre’s small animal unit until a new family can be found. Lydia Sawyer, Animal Welfare Supervisor at Blue Cross in Burford, Oxfordshire said: “Although most people love a good curry and naan bread, we wouldn’t recommend it for guinea pigs. “Luckily these little pigs were unharmed by their takeaway ordeal and while at least they were left near a safe place, abandoning pets in cardboard boxes outside can put them in all sorts of danger.”
