Just signed up to the site but have been reading the threads for a while. I have two females named Ally and Gwen and they are spectacular. Wanted to say hey to everyone here and congrats on the great site!

Thank you Janelle. Though this could go in a different thread, I already have this one open: any effective way to get one pig to start speaking up? Ally lets me know when she's hungry or when she wants to be put down, but Gwen is silent almost 24/7!

Some guinea pigs take a longer time to speak up then others. Some just aren't very vocal. Most will eventualy speak up but some are a tad mute.

I have a question: futbalgenius as in the eqivelent to American soccer?

Yeah I'm American but in most forums that I've been active in have been football (soccer) related, and I've stuck with that name for a long time.

And also while I'm here, any tips on traveling w/ pigs? I have to meet someone to take care of them for this upcoming weekend while I'm out of town, and the I don't have an effective travel cage for my 2 pigs. I bought a store cage and cut the base to use as a hay-bin, and there's no way my C&C cage will fit in my car. Will I have to swallow the price for a travel cage? And will they be OK in that for the weekend as the place they will be staying has inside pets and I've no other options for where they can stay this weekend.

Could you buy/borrow a cat carrier and pack some extra grids and zipties/connectors and maybe a shower curtain as a base then guinea pig supllies.
