View Full Version : Timothy and Alfalfa

Hello. I've been lurking in these forums for a while and I joined last week (I think). Earlier this year I got my two boys, Timothy and Alfalfa, from a guinea pig rescue. They live in a C&C cage that is 2X2 (I think). I think C&C cages are the best and wish I had known about them when I had my other cavies (this was pre-Internet). I have been vegan for almost seven years. I look forward to discussing guinea pigs and how to make them happy. This is a picture of the boys in their favorite chair.

You may find it better to have a 2x4 with 2 piggies, a 2x3 is the minimum for 1 piggy. Having boys aswell they tend to need more space so as not to get too territorial as they grow up.

Cute piggers though!

Wow, those are really cute piggies!

I agree with cookie_gal that a larger cage would be better, if possible.

Whoops. I meant 2x4. Sorry about the confusion.

They must be about two now. They were fully grown when I adopted them and the vets continually say that they are the largest guinea pigs they've ever seen.
