    Human trapped in guinea pig

    Hey, I'm a bit bewildered at my guinea pigs behaviour and have tried searching it up everywhere but have found nothing. It is honestly like she's a human in a guinea pig body, she even looks a bit human in the eyes. Like she understands me. When my other piggies are drinking or eating, she'll...

    Piggies keep peeing in food bowls

    Hi everyone! since I got my two ladies about 2 months ago, they’ve been regularly peeing in their food bowls. Initially they only had one for dry food and one for veggies, so I assumed it was a territory thing, since there’s two of them. However I have gotten them bowls each, which are regularly...

    How can I secure my fleece down on a regular cage to prevent burrowing?

    Hi everyone, I just got a new fleece to line my cage but one of my piggies Madison keeps burrowing underneath it! Since it’s not a C&C cage I can’t clip it to anything and it fits the cage perfectly so can’t tuck it under/over anything. I’ve tried putting her bowl in one of the corners but she...

    Changed behaviour?

    Hello lovelies! Id like to think my two guinea pigs and I had bonded really well. They’d run up to the mesh to see me, squeak, popcorn, zoom etc. But I went away for a week and my partner looked after them. I got back, so excited to see them again and they didn’t come out of their huts, one...

    Guinea pig finger holding

    Hello - I’ve tried to find info about this online but literally can’t find a thing. More recently my guinea pig will run up to the side of the cage when he sees me and if I put my finger through he holds it in his mouth shortly - not even nipping just holding it. Is there any significance to...

    Guinea Pig Won't Enter His Cage After Floor Time

    Hello everyone, I have a curious deal with our guinea pig boy as of yesterday, wanted to see if anyone else had a similar experience with this. We've been upgrading our C&C cage setting since we're adopting three more guinea pigs. Our current boy (single but not for long!) was in a 2-story...

    Pigs kicking pigs!

    Hi! Does anyone else’s guinea pigs kick the other? I don’t think it’s a problem but I find it quite funny as you can tell when one is readying a kick, he backs himself up and aims and then drop kicks the other haha.

    Constant Humping

    Hi! So we have two Male piggies (Sooty and Sweep), brothers and are 16 months old. They live together and can go days being absolutely done, other days Sweep non stop humps Sooty, chasing him, climbing on his face etc etc. I know this is normal behaviour but on the days where it’s bad it’s...

    angry piggie

    Ever since we got Louie he has always been a bit aggressive towards us and every other guinea pig except one. I've always thought it was because he's shy and doesn't like being picked up or likes being the dominant one. Is there a reason he's mean/aggressive or os it just the way he is? (he's...

    Hi, any help would be so appreciated. I have 2 females, Biscuit was adopted and is at least 2 years old (actual age unknown) and one new addition that we got 2 days ago, Piglet - she’s a baby. :love: We did an introduction and all was really smooth. Biscuit seemed to take Piglet under her wing...

    I got my girls, Moira and Rose, back in May, so 7 months ago now. Within the past month, they have started exhibiting dominance behaviors that I have never seen up until this point.

    Strange noise and behaviour

    Hello all, I’m a little desperate because I cannot seem to find an answer to my little fellow’s behaviour anywhere! So suddenly, since yesterday, my guinea pig (he’s 3 and a bit years old) started making this strange noise. (I'll can't attach an audio of the noise so I'll link it up at the...

    Weight Loss

    Mr Muffin was neutered last week and when I weighed him yesterday he has lost about 22g. I weighed him again today and he has lost about 25g. There hasn’t been anything wrong with him since the surgery. I think it might be because of the separation from Blueberry. They’ve been separated for a...

    Hi, I have 2 male guinea pigs aged about 9 months. I got them from a private seller as a Xmas gift from Santa. They were the sellers first litter, she had sold them to a friend but they were returned, so I bought them. Anyway, they live in my living room so that they are not spooked by our...

    First night together!

    Hi there, I’m new here and just looking for a bit of advice. We have just adopted a new Guinea pig today from a rescue. He is a 1.5 year old male and had always lived alone. We needed a new companion for our 10 month old male as he lost his friend recently. The bonding has gone pretty well and...

    Young females bonding advice

    I got two young female piggies about two weeks ago. I thought they we're already bonded when I got them but once I got them home I realised they hadn't formed a bond yet. They're settling in well and seem to love their new home but they're not great friends. They play together and enjoy floor...
