    Well, generally speaking I'm a rat person, but I've been doing some research on piggies and I got my first one this weekend. He's only a couple of months old and he's silver and white, very pretty. He's still a little skittish but I'll post pics soon. He's warming up to me, but he's terrified of...

    My parents have recently given me the 'ok' to get a guinea pig on Feb. 1st, and I want to know where i can get one in good shape. Our local animal shelter doesn't have any Guinea pigs, and I'm weary about getting one from "PetsUnlimited" because the two rodent we got their on separate occasions...

    We recently got a female guinea pig from a pet shop (we didn't know any better) and of course she was pregnant. No big deal, after lots of research we found out that it would be better for her to have a playmate anyway. Well about 3 wks ago she had 2 babies. I just recently built them a C&C cage...

    Coroner Accused Of Cruelty To Guinea Pigs - News Story - WGAL Lancaster I am not sure I agree with this one. He apparently does know how to care for them, but maybe he had too many together? He kept them, he watched them... What else was he supposed to do? It is cases like these that make me...
  11. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Hi, I know it is normal for guinea pigs to be somewhat shy but my new baby (Brownie) seems to be a little more than that. We adopted her about two and a half weeks ago and she won't leave her blanket. She is about six or seven weeks old. She is eating and drinking well but seems to be overly...

    I have finally put my two groups of girls in one cage. It took four months, but I think that they will finally be getting along. I just can't believe how they act towards each other now. There was bloodshed just a few months ago. Even three weeks ago, poor Gizmo got a busted lip. I redid...

    I was just wondering where you got your guinea pig(s)? Are they well tempered or... what, and would you consider going back to the place that you got them from to get another? Thank you :)

    Last night was just not a good night.. after I euthanized my fishie I was feeling sad so I went and sat down next to Max in his cage. I noticed his breathing was a little raspy/rattly. It wasn't raspy all the time but it would come and go. It was fine earlier in the day and just came out of...

    Lulu has an eye injury & I think she poked herself with a piece of hay. I'm taking her to the vet this afternoon. I feel terrible about it. I don't think Ginger or Olly did anything to her. There is a spot on her eye that's white & a little discharge coming out of the corner. She was fine...
