    When to hold new baby Guinea Pig?

    I just brought home my baby Guinea pig 2 days ago. Not sure exactly how hold he is but my guess is he is 2-3 months. He started eating out of my hand an hour after being home, which I understand is quite fast. But is nervous when I go to pet him, jumps at any little noise I make and the 3 times...

    Missing my baby.

    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.
