I have had two baby piggies for about 3 weeks. One is extremely sleek, fast and agile (rosmary). And the other is stumpy..and chubby (lavender).
I have a wooden house for my 4 piggies and they love climbing on top and jumping on and off it. Its about 15cm high. I had a ramp to the top but they never used it and just jumped on and off so I removed it and turned it into a hide.

However my chubby piggie, lavender always struggles to get up, her little belly gets in the way. My other piggie who is the same age (8 weeks) flies up there with speed and ease.
I'm scared she'll hurt herself (I have already put the ramp back) BUT, its got me thinking.

Would a guinea pig still attempt to do something if it knows it barely can or if its hurt itself previously? Like why 😂 she'll even go into tight spaces and get stuck then cry but she'll do it again and I have to rescue her.

I'm also wondering if she is blind. I know red eyes don't necessarily mean blindness or bad eye sight but would love to know more.

**they have two hides each so there's no shortage of hiding. And 6x3 c&c cage with two lofts.
Also shes not obese or anything just round and stumpy with no length to her body

What a gorgeous little chunk!

Were all a little short and chunky in some areas! Lol. I doubt she would be blind as she would probably be bumping into absolutely everything and I doubt she would have confidence. Are her eyes milky?

Her eyes aren't milky they're a black/blue colour but they're red in certain lightings. I've never seen a guinea pig with eyes like that 😂
