Exactly two months ago he passed away. I still get really upset talking about him, he was my baby. He meant the world to me. His passing hit me hard, he went so suddenly and if I’m being honest, I don’t want to move on for fear of forgetting my darling.
So a little information from you wise people if you could 🙃
My dear beloved Ted passed away far too early last week at 3 years old, he was my absolute joy.
However, he has left behind his pal Now my question is should I get another for company for Boo or not?
Boo seems like he's...
I am new to this forum, so hello fellow guinea pig owners :)
Firstly, I have owned Guinea pigs for years! Absolutely love them. Our ones live outside in hutches and in a run during the day. I currently have 4 rescue piggies, 3 of them being females and one male.
Yesterday, I decided to...
My older guineapig Fudge passed away around a month ago at the age of 4 leaving my other guineapig (Rolo) on his own.
I am now currently sitting on the floor watching Rolo and the new baby (whose yet to have a name) run around the pen, humping each other teeth chattering etc, and it’s...
I have recently bought two baby guinea pig sows, Popcorn and Minstrel! I want to weigh them weekly for the next six weeks just to make sure they're both putting weight on - I think Popcorn is eating much more than Minstrel, so I want to make sure they're both healthy and growing as...
Hi everyone! I just wanted to share a cute story about my guinea pigs. (First, I wanted to say that I know back to back guinea pig pregnancies are very dangerous and this situation was not planned.) One of my babies, Autumn, had a litter of 3 with a boar, Winter, who I originally thought was a...
I've had a male guinea pig for 4 years now, been alone all this time but recently decided to get another one for company as I'm pregnant and won't have as much time to play with him anymore.
I got a male baby guinea pig.
When introducing them the older one constantly chases the baby one, licking...
so i got a baby piggie a few days ago. i let him sit for the first two days or so, and so now i've started to take out his hiding things once a day so i can pick him up and hold him. i figure he probably won't voluntarily come out on his own so i have to take the hides out to bond with him. i...
I got a new baby guinea pig three days ago. He is about eight weeks. Last night, I noticed both his eyes were really crusty. I showed my roommate and told him that it said online to wipe the eyes. My roommate told me not to. It looked like it was healing that way and if I gently cleaned it, I...
I have had a female guinea pig named Macy for nearly two years, I got her by herself because my parents only let me get one at the time. Recently I got a baby guinea pig (female as well) and she is only two months. I was expecting it to be a bit difficult with Macy as she's been alone for so...
This might be a strange question - but I am fairly new to owning guinea pigs. I got a 5 month old pig last month, and he was really sweet and liked to be held and would take naps on my lap etc. I did a lot of research on companionship for guinea pigs, and decided to by him a...
Hi guys! Not sure which forum to post this in but I have two males, both the same age (so I was told when I bought them- and they were the same size) but Artie is now loads bigger than Archie who still seems tiny.
When I hold Artie he feels nice and chubby how I imagine a guinea pig should be...
i have three guinea pigs, two of which were just introduced about a week ago. they are getting alone fine and playing well but one morning i noticed a cut on one's face. it almost looks white powdery around it and is scabbing a lot. i've been gently cleaning it and it doesn't seem to be...
Happened to be looking through my old phone and found this adorable photo of Baby from a few weeks after we got her!
Please excuse the terrible cage and the tunnel
I wasn't aware of the right way to house them back then!
But doesn't she look small and sweet :)
It's been a couple of months since I have been in here - in fact my last post was introducing you all to my rabbit Kuro.
He is doing great and we have bonded brilliantly it feels like he has always been part of the family.
The piggies are all really interested in him too - although...
Last week I adopted two baby girls - one I have named Hazel, but I am struggling to find a name I like for the other!
For the little brown one on the left! Right one is Spud :)
The two abby's are Tatoe and Hazel!
Hi i have just introduced my newborn's and their mother to my three other female pigs but they seem to be bullying the baby pigs chasing them and I noticed one chewing fur. The mother and another of the females are not getting on and are chasing each other around the cage. Any idea on what I can do?
Baby had a bath!
And she really didn't like it!
We stopped and started alot so she didn't feel too overwhelmed!
Here are some cute photos we took while Baby cuddled with me to dry:
Also, we found some flees while combing her?
Do guinea pigs get flees? Or are they Cat flees that have...
We would like to expand our little cavy family by adopting a 6 week old female from the local shelter. We already have two 1 year old females at home. Before we adopt, does anyone have advice on (a) how successful baby to adult bonding can be, (b) any precautions we should take, and...
Even though she's not really long haired
I've just given baby a haircut!
Baby seems to be struggling to groom herself lately
She's not been looking her normal shiny, healthy self.
She injured her foot a while ago so maybe that's why she's been grooming less,
But she's had a hair cut, a brush...
