    Popcorning or irritated?

    Hello lovelies! I have a quick question, is there a way to differentiate whether a small jump was a popcorn or a flinch from an irritation eg a mite bite/itch? For context: - I rescued two sisters (approx 4 years old) 12 days ago. One is very timid, the other a little more confident and both...

    Help! An escape artist in training

    Hi I have an urgent issue! I set up my new C&C cage today for my skinny pigs and my smallest one has jumped out twice within the past hour! I was told piggies don’t jump high and the cage would be safe, what should I do until the cover I ordered comes in?

    Scared of being picked up?

    Hi, I’ve got two guinea-pigs Eric and Ernie (Eric is the black piggy in my picture and Ernie the blonde one). Earlier today Ernie jumped out of my hands and miraculously fell into a hanging basket so he didn’t fall on the ground! I think he’s okay, I’m keeping an eye on him but there doesn’t...

    Why Does She Do This?

    i have a young guinea pig and sometimes she randomly runs in circles and jumps up and down. I can't tell if it's a guinea pig seizure or what because she seems to have control of where she's running but not her jumping. She ends up jumping pretty high.

    Jumping Pig

    Hello :luv: Does anyone have experiences with jumping pigs? I took my little one out for his first floor time yesterday and I thought he'll just have a look around but he actually was so happy and ran around, exploring, talking and even popcorning a little. It was the best thing to see :yahoo...
