    Strange noise?

    My 4 year old female guinea pig has been making this noise recently, especially at nighttime. She hasn’t shown any signs of stopping the noise, but is eating and drinking fine and seems active. Anyone experienced this noise before who could help me out?

    Advice please! - Teenage boars

    I have two 9 month old boars. They have always been a pair that since the very start have been a bit bothersome. One is more a trouble maker than others.

    Shy Guinea Pig

    I’ve had Macy for coming on about three years. She is quite outgoing. Like most Guinea pigs, shell run if I try to pick her up but she’ll be fine immediately after. I can pet her through the cage and could basically scream (not that I do or would) and she’d be fine if not a small freeze. When I...

    Piggies Not Eating Hay!

    A Mate

    I have 1 male guinea pig. I have been reading the forums of people and their 2 guineas. I was wondering if it is ok to have 1 or should I get a mate for him?
