Guinea Pig Weight Gain
How much and how fast should my piggies be gaining weight? I weighed them both Monday and Squeakers weighed 17oz and Bugsy weighed 15oz. Today, Bugsy's weight was exactly the same but Squeakers gained about a half to 3/4 of an oz. Is that too fast or normal? Should I just watch the trend over a few weeks? I don't want to cause health problems from obesity later in life!! I have noticed that Squeakers eats a LOT more than Bugs, although Bugs does eat, just not constantly!!

RIP sweet little Bugsy. We didn't know you long, but we loved more than you could have known. Sleep sweet little one.
RIP little Sammy. Thanks for 2 and a half wonderful years! You had a long happy life and we miss you more than you know. Play hard, sweetie...
