My boy Oggie always licks me when I’m tickling him (this upgrades to popcorning in my lap if I tickle his tummy) but recently he’s started trying to comb my skin too. It’s not nipping, it’s more like he’s trying to tease my skin through his teeth like he would with another guinea pig’s fur. It’s weird, but not painful.

Does anyone else’s pig do this? Or is he just trying to tell me something about my personal hygiene? 🤨

my Lulu will groom, especially if you scratch her ears. she was going crazy last night licking my 7 yo hands. said child revealed that she ate her broccoli with her fingers.
