    Pelvic thrusting

    Hello everyone! My two sows (sisters, approx 4 years old) regularly thrust their pelvis once and quite slowly/deeply usually when they’re popcorning. There’s no seasonal pattern it’s just very frequent. I’m super confused and can only imagine it’s hormonal. Any clue?

    Seizures? Or just being weird?

    So my piggie is definitely a weird one, she’s veryyy special 🤣, slow, if you will LOL. So I’ve always thought this thing she does was just another one of her weird quirks with no explanation.

    My guinea pig Kookie is around 5 months old and popcorns pretty frequently but I’ve recently found that when I scratch his back, he popcorns on my chest? It’s moreso him flipping onto his stomach and I really don’t think he’s asking for tummy scratches. Does anyone else’s piggie do this? We were...

    Biting and chattering teeth at me to play?

    My Cavy Bacon Chunk has a really weird way of playing, he calls me in by weaking (when he already has all his food and water) just to play. He’ll stand up in his cage and wait for me to put my hand in he’ll bite me and then popcorn, then he’ll continue a few more times if he gets to nip at me or...

    Is He Okay?

    Hey, SO I was here around a month against with concerns over my new Guinea pigs, Trevor, behaviour. He bites at the bars a lot, which has made neighbours complain and now we're moving him into a 6 foot long, foot 1/2 wide "fish tank" with an open top. He's very very skittish even though I've...
