My guinea pig, Phineas, doesn't seem as "perky" as he used to. He's still eating good, drinking good, gaining weight perfectly, he just doesn't popcorn like he used to and when I hold him he seems bored or aggitated and nips at my shirt. The other night he bit my neck hard enough to leave a mark which is TOTALLY out of character!! He doesn't even nibble my fingers like Squeakers does! He sorta plays a bit in his cage with Squeakers, but just doesn't seem as "into it" as he did. He's approximately 5 and a half months old and is the submissive male of the pair. Is it just that he's growing up or are mood swings normal and he'll bounce back? Squeakers is a month older and is the same personality he always has been!
