I found you through Google when I was in the process of acquiring two sows for my daughters. I knew nothing whatsoever about guinea pigs and so needed instruction on everything -- which this forum has provided. I skulked for the first couple of months, both learning a great deal and gradually coming to see that this is a rather lovely community. I then joined when I needed specific advice as to whether something merited a vet trip or not (it didn't). I now spend rather a lot of time here as it feels such a friendly place to be -- and, of course, those little guinea pigs have won me over. I find it very impressive how much help, information and support you unfailingly give in your answers to any question, over and over again, and how incredibly quickly you respond. Thank you for all your work.

That’s such a lovely post. Many of us lurked, too, before finally joining or making our first post. I love that even an old hand like me can learn something new on here most days. And how when the chips are down, our fellow piggy owners are the best support in the world.

The first rule about the forum, is you don't talk about the forum 😉.

Name the film I'm thinking of

I'll fight you and club you if you don't stop posing silly questions. ;)

I found the forum in 2014 when I was looking for info on my sick piggy that time (Timmy). Too bad his case wasn't written in the forum (he had hernia as complications of neutering, which he only started having symptoms after we adopted him from RSPCA). After that, I stayed here and read a lot that can be changed in terms of the piggies' set up, behaviour, recommended vets, etc. 😁

I found the forum on Google when I was searching for general piggie advice. I thought it would be cool to join for the information, as well as finding others who enjoy sharing their love of these critters!

I haven't been a member long but this seems like a very helpful and friendly community!

I joined when I was searching a question about guinea pigs and the answer came up to be from this forum; when I saw how many helpful guides and what a friendly place it seems to be I joined! So glad I did :yahoo:

I found it when i looked up "recipes for guinea pig safe cakes" on google for our guinea pig Aegir the Abyssinian (he turned 1) for his Birthday, and a few days later i joined and it's been so fun and useful and talking to friends on it is the best and sharing stories and photos of piggies is great!

I was searching up things about guinea pigs and the info I found was often on this forum. I thought it would be great to get advice from other guinea pig owners so I joined :)

I found the forum when looking for any info before getting the piggies- I was already a member of the gerbil forum, and thought there might be a guinea pig forum as well, so I googled it. :)

I found the forum when I was researching about my guinea pig pooping out her intestines (we didn’t know that it was her intestines at the time) and we thought it was a stone and we thought she would be okay, (we were completely wrong) anyway, I decided to join the forum because I wanted to get more answers to my questions and give advice to other guinea pig owners, and of course, I also joined the forum to have fun!

I browsed the forum for a while before ever joining, but when I actually had a chance to get piggies, I turned more than ever to the forum haha

I found you guys thru google for some great advice! Couldn’t resist but to join after seeing how involved and happy people are with their piggies and couldn’t resist but to join and share.

I found this forum first thro pinterest when I was searching cage ideas after adopting our first piggie at the end of September (adult but his age is unknown, given up due fighting with his cage mate but person didn't have room for 2 cages) then I was looking for bonding advice after adopting 2 younger piggies a few weeks later in mid October (brothers about 3 months old, family lost interest) a few weeks later so at that point I decided to join as there is soo much info on here. Last week we adopted a girl who is about 2 years old to pair with our older boy as he did not get on with the younger 2! She was given up the daughter was moving to uni and couldn't take her and her parents didn't want the responsibility. The bonding went soo well with our older one that they are now together (Nicklaus was neutered by his previous owner thinking that getting both neutered would calm them down....)
Let's just say I'm no longer allowed on rescue and rehoming sites after getting a 5 month old puppy in May (one of the owners found out she was allergic to dogs after getting him), my friend giving me a kitten in August after her cat had an unexpected litter (she thought the cat was a boy until he got pregnant!), 2 rats at the end of August (they were given up with their litter brothers as they were an accident from wrong sexing) then their 2 litter brothers at the end of September (a day after our first piggie) as the person who rehomed them when we rehomed their brothers brought them back because he didn't want to put in the work to tame them) then the last 3 piggies....

I found the forum from the "other animals" sub-forum on a hamster forum. I joined because I just wanted to get answers to my questions, and be able to ask others to elaborate on their answers.
