    Type of noise

    What does it mean when a guinea pig chews loudly when you hold it? I know what chattering sounds like and this isn't it. It's almost like he's chewing on left over food, but I notice him grinding his teeth or chewing, whenever he's held. Maybe he is eating left over food or maybe nervous? :hmm:

    Guinea Pig Sounds

    Hi everyone, My guinea pig, Ginger, makes a strange deep purr noise and shakes whenever I pet her back. She doesn’t seem agitated or irritated. I can’t tell if this noise is good or bad. Please help! Here is a link to the YouTube video of the noise.

    New piggy is still scared of every sound, how should i calm her down?

    I recently got a new guinea pig, she is very sweet and is doing really well, however, she is scared of the slightest noise. If I even slightly move my foot on the carpet she looks alert or runs back into her hidey. She is completely used to the sound of my voice and she feels safe enough to walk...

    Making A Chirping Sound!

    Hi guys! My piggie has just been making a noise that sounds more like a bird chirping than a guinea pig sound! Is this normal? He was running around and eating- being his usual self. Was very strange, like a high pitch short squeak? By the way that’s the only way I can describe it haha! Thanks!

    What Do These Sounds Mean?

    Hello there everyone! For context, my guinea pigs are very young and small. I think they are almost 2 months old but they are indeed still tiny babies. These are my first guinea pigs, so I am incredibly cautious in terms of messing things up. So, the question: what do these sounds mean? I...

    Strange Piggy Noises!

    hi! I have two piggies, a 2 year old female and a 3 year old male. Lately, only occasionally, I have been hearing a new noise I have never heard them make before! I think it's the female making the noise, the only way I can describe it is like a chicken coo. It's a little like rumbling but...
