Vampires vs Zombies: Battle for the Guinea Pigs

As Lily mentioned in her review of Flip This Zombie, guinea pigs are no longer just a timid squealing childhood pet.  These critters are hitting the zombie streets; as well as tantalizing the taste buds of vampires.  That's right folks, vamps enjoy rodent blood.
