I wear my house coat when handling my guinea pigs so I don't get clawed, but Ginger eats my house coat! He bites it, and swishes some thing round his mouth. I think he is eating the house coat. I hope this is ok.

Is it a fluffy one? Teddy kept chewing on my fluffy socks so I just wear cotton ones now when I'm in the run with them now.

I meant your Housecoat haha!:) If it's a fluffy, fleecy one it might be tempting for him to nibble on like my socks were. Your Guinea Pigs are gorgeous, Ginger is a really nice colour

I'm not sure if it would be harmful or not but I'd find an alternative to wear, something non fluffy. It'll end up full of holes if Ginger keeps munching on it:xd:

It depend on what the fibre in the coat is made of. Cotton wool and natural fibre are not worry about, oil based fibres not so good.

Some piggies show that they want home/need to pee by tugging on your clothes. Here are tips on how you can discourage him by using piggy behaviour.

It's ages since I posted this, and I've realised why they wanted to.. your right! They just needed to pee. Always, straight after I put them in the pen/cage they do... what they do. Thanks! Now, as a reward have a cute picture of Moonlight! FullSizeRender.jpg
