    Diary of Candy the Guinea Pig

    Wooh! Today was hard. My pet, Roxy, took Holly and I out and into the running area. We played hide and seek and tag. It was like a workout! Then we got put back in our cages. We drank some water and rested in our pigloos. Can’t wait for tomorrow! Probably going to have a whole new day of running!

    Not Sure What Behavior Means

    Hi! So, I fed my guinea pig this morning, and I noticed that she did something strange that I hadn’t noticed ever before. She flattened her ears against her head and they moved up and down constantly while she was eating. I hope this doesn’t mean anything bad. Thank you, your help is much...

    Our guinea pigs are hiding from us.

    Hello all! I’m looking for some guidance today since our two young piggies Fawn and Willow are hiding from us and seem quite scared of us. If they can see you, they will hide. Even if you’re a good distance away from them. They run into their little house and don’t come out until you’ve left and...

    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...

    Guinea pigs fighting very aggressively

    Hey! :) So recently, two of my pigs have been at it. Conki and Sabi. Sabi is known for being a little bit of a sissy but this seems pretty bad. Conki will randomly attack her, and when Sabi is nervous she runs into the corner of the cage and faces me. It’s so sad. I want to help her but should I...

Although I love him so much and would never want him to die, I have been thinking about getting another pet after he crosses the rainbow bridge. My parents have been considering a cat, which...

    Guinea Pig Sneezed After Cage Cleaning?

    Hi! I have three guinea pigs and two of them I just recently brought into my family, and now they’re all living happily together! They have all been getting along, eating, chasing each other, popcorning etc, and things have been smooth. However, today, something concerning (yet pretty...

    Boars Acting Slightly Uneasy Towards Eachother

    Hey, everyone! I think it was around a month ago I bonded my boars. Since the last time I've posted here, I've expanded my cage a lot. Now it is 16 square feet, (or imagine a 4x2 connected to a 2x3 but more space because no closing). They've been really happy in it, they have 3 hideys, a hay...

    Whisker Trim?

    Hi everybody, I have a coronet and I feel like his whiskers are incredibly long. Is it okay to trim them? Sorry if this is a dumb question I’ve just never had a long haired pig before.

    Not Eating Hay Or Drinking Water?

    Hi! I'm a New Guinea pig owner. He's about two months and his name is Pumpkin. He was doing well the first month I had him (got him when he was 1 month old) and was popcorning, wheeking, and exploring. But now going into the second month I noticed he's not being so active. Is he bored? Should I...

    Genuinely Nice Surprise

    Went to Pets@Home today to get another 1kg bag (I think lol its the biggest one they do) of Timothy hay. I know it's not the best value for money (actually think they messed up as the sign said £6.99 and I paid £4 something :whistle:) but Mo loves it and Steve has been on it since I got him...
