For the naughty boy or girl in your cage

We’re talking about guinea pigs dressed as the devil, obviously. If your little guy has been known to get his or her dietary fiber by way of chewing through their wooden cages, a devil costume will be adorably appropriate. This one is available in limited supply, and we’re not even sure who decided it needed to be made, but it’s extremely necessary and we have no idea how the human race made it this far into the guinea pig domestication game without naughty outfits. Just don’t leave a lump of coal in the cage, OK?

Guinea pigs wearing ugly Christmas sweaters are all the peace on Earth we need.
