    Tries to Jump Out Arms

    When I have Holly in a blanket or towel and are bringing her back to her cage, she’ll climb over anything and try to jump off the towel into her cage! Many times I have dropped her and felt guilty, and then felt mixed emotions because she’s the one who tried to get off! It is driving me crazy...

    Weird behavior

    Hi everyone, I got my little girl pickles about 2 months ago. She is very loud and popcorns often. She does, however, have some weird behaviors I’d like to ask about as I’m worried about my baby. They thought she was about 4 months old when I got her. She looooves cuddles to the point where she...

    Desperate running away during laptime?

    Hi there! I've had my piggy Latte for 2 weeks now and have been handling him often every day. I usually bring him to bed whenever I feed him his veggies and for the first week and a half he would usually be fairly still and I'd let him hide and run around under the blankets, but now he'll eat...

    Hi all, Two weeks ago I got two male 7 month old guinea pigs, Louis and Charles. They are brothers and I’ve housed them in the same Midwest cage. Everything was fine and dandy until just tonight I let them out of their cage to play on the living room floor. They were zooming around, eating...

    Mom guinea pig fights with her two three month old daughters

    Hello! A while back, I've made a thread on my mom guinea pig Akira, who bit her son when he was one week old. I was told that it was normal, that it was just her way of "spanking" him and how she's the superior of the group. It's been a few months now since then, and I have Akira with her two...

    Introducing a female guineapig

    Hi everyone! I’m looking for a bit of advice as we’ve had a situation with our boar pigs which has resulted in us having to separate one of them. We had three boars together and over the past month or so they’ve fallen out. I’ve deduced that they started to get territorial as they have reached...

    Constant Butt Grooming/Licking/Nipping?

    I have three female guinea pigs. One of them has recently developed a very annoying habit. She chases after the other two and seems to be grooming and nipping at their butts.

    Female Dominance or Bullying?

    Two months ago, I rescued two female guinea pigs from a friend whose family found them in their wood pile. They came in a pet store cage with one single-entrance hideaway. That’s when I noticed Binx (presumably the older one) showing dominance towards Buffy by not letting her into/out of the...

    Crunched Up In A Corner All Day!

    My older guinea pig, Jake, is always teeth chattering around Winnie, the younger one, and always chases him around. Now, Winnie stays in a corner all day and I don't think he's eating. He even poops and pees there and just stays there. I think it has something to do with Jake chasing him around...

    Hello A little background on the situation first: Early this year we lost one of our older boars leaving another by himself. He seemed very unhappy alone so I spoke to a local rescue I have used before and we agreed that the best option was a baby boar to keep him company. As the remaining boar...

    My Guinea Pig Hates Me

    I got a male guinea pig last November, and since then he has shown many signs of aggression every single time I take him out of his cage to socialize or pet him. Even if I'm not even touching him, he'll chatter his teeth and shake. If I pet him he yawns to show his teeth which I've heard is...

    Very Shy Guinea Pig

    I've had my 2 Guinea Pigs, Mocha and Coco for a while now and Mocha is just fine with me being around. She lets me pick her up and pet her and things like that. However, Coco is still extremely shy. I do understand that when you first get your Guinea Pigs, they'll be shy and it may take some...
