    When Sprout (was Bob) Met Chutney

    Posted before about bringing Bob home as a possible new friend for Chutney. Well...after a week of having their cages next to each other, I let them meet today. Put them in the bathroom, with a big plate of food, and kept a very careful eye on them. Didn't go too badly, all things considered...

    Too Good To Be True?

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum but not new to guinea pigs. I've had pairs of boars in the past but right now I'm working on introducing a third boar to my existing pair.

    Attempted Introduction/bonding When Badly.... I Think.

    Hi guys, I decided to introduce Baby and the new girls Anya and Aurora tonight. I set up an area, and let them into it, It started alright i suppose, Baby waltzed right up to Anya and Aurora and did a bit of grumbling? She wasnt rumbling but it was a vocal kind of dominance noise i think. I...

    My name is Annelle - an enthusiastic new Guinea Pig parent. I have two little boys (less than 6 months old,) named Banjo and Snoopy. I intended to stop there until I was at a Petco and felt horrible for a bigger male who was being kept alone in the small cage. My heart when out to him and I...
