Hi!The cuteness is too much!
Arrived yesterday and very happy having some cuddles and an explore in their new home
They’re a pair.Hi!
Babies are always uber-cute.
There is however the matter of lots of poops, constant cage cleaning and monthly vet bills running into the hundreds of pounds/dollars once you have more piggies; not to mention the sleepless nights when you have to syringe feed a critically ill piggy round the clock or have to cope with several losses in very quick succession because emergencies and deaths they never happen nicely spaced out and usually at the worst time possible. The fight for squeezing some human stuff into the fridge and what you lay out on a weekly basis on hay, veg and pellets... I should know!
Piggies are cute babies only for a few precious weeks, rambunctious teenagers for months and adults for years.
PS: Is this your only piggy or do you have a piggy companion?
Same here! It's hard enough having 4! He wants to reduce the number to 2 when they toddle off to the Rainbow Bridge. He doesn't look after them or pay for the vets bills so he has nothing to complain about.The only reason I don’t have more is the husband won’t let me!
Same here. When my 2 get their lovely big cage (hopefully soon) I'll have no space to put anymore but that fine by me I can focus all my time on pampering the two of themit's space for me with 2 boys any more means a whole new cage and risk of messing with their bond if i got girls so I opt for spoiling the ones I've got instead of getting any more.
I actually didn't like Guinea pigs when I was a child, I like and had rabbits, but since I had Guinea pigs, I got them not by choice (long story I got landed with a pair of boars from a school) ever since this and realising how vocal they are, I prefer them to rabbits.It could be a slippery slope! I remember having them as a child and still as wonderful as I remember
