About Us

by Monika

Welcome to Animallama, a pet blog aiming to help pet owners take good care of their adorable pets!

My name is Monika and I started this website because I wanted to help pets and their humans on their journey. Our goal is to take part in educating and informing pet owners of the best ways to care for their fur friends.

If you’re an owner of small pets such as guinea pigs, rabbits, rats, mice, or hamsters, make sure to read through our posts to find valuable tips on how to keep your pets happy and healthy!


Animallama writers:

Lindsay Pereira – writing about guinea pigs & rabbits

Lindsay Pereira is a pet-lov’in Montréal-based freelance writer who’s a “mommy” to Maya, a sweet-tempered senior Labrador/Rottweiler with a bark that scares the neighbors, Muffy, a grumpy guinea pig with a serious attitude problem, the recently departed Miss Lilly, who is happily nibbling hay in guinea pig heaven, and an indeterminate amount of freshwater fish.
