Welcome to Cavy Cages.

We want you to get the maximum enjoyment and value from our forum. Proper posting is a firm requirement here and helps us keep a high standard of readability. We require posters to use proper capitalization, punctuation and avoid chat speak.

I'm a UK-er too. Around the same age as you as well if I remember rightly from your other post. It's very sunny and warm in Northern Ireland. 28 degrees C due on Sunday! My poor mum.

Anyways. Have you pics of your precious pigsters? We'd love to see them. Hope to see you around!

I will post pictures of the piggies as soon as i can, my digi camera has been borrowed so when i get it back i will take some pictures.

While i am here, i just want to ask something.
My guinea pigs are both males, and it wasn't until i bought them i found out it's unadvisable to keep males together. I'm a bit concerned, now and again they have a little fight, nothing major. When i bought them they were together and they are babies, so do you think they'll be okay, because they are growing up together?

Thank you =)

They should be fine. All pigs scuffle now and again to make sure everyone knows who is dominant in the cage. As long as there isn't bloodshed and no one is getting injured, leave them alone. You said they're babies. How old are they now? When they hit puberty around 3-4 months old, you might see more skirmishes for a few months while their hormones are raging.
