View Full Version : Sweet hello from Cryssa and her boys

09-21-11, 08:01 pm
Hey guys, I'm Cristina(or Cryssa or any way you would like to call me). I'm a huuuuge guinea pig lover and I want to become a better owner for them:love:
It started in January when I went to a local petshop and found SooHyun. Back then I didn't like guinea pigs but I decided to take him home as he was in an extremly bad shape. For 7 months we struggled together but whenever we managed to get rid of a disease a new one was waiting by the corner:( 2 days before my birthday my SooHyun went to a better world
This was my angel

As he was my first piggy I didn't know anything about them so I had to learn a lot, about how to gain his trust, make him happy, and try to get him healthy. Many people said they never saw such a sociable guinea pig. After I gained his trust he became so lovely he wasn't scared of anybody and loved to be scratched on his tummy like a dog.
At first I bought an unsuitable cage but later, when i found out i bought the right one and soon a friend for him
Unfortunately while I was in hospital kevin(the white angora pig) had diareea and the lady who took care of him didn't know it is severe so my poor kevin didn't receive the right treatment and passed away.
A few months before Hyun's death my little Kien joined the family. He is a beautiful angora male(his pedigree name is Ocean Blue de Inka) but he is extremly spoiled xDD

After Hyun's death Kien was extremly depressed and even stopped eating so a little neglected piggy joined our family too...unfortunately we didn't pick a name for him yet
A day after I bought the black guinea pig i saw an add with 4 extremly beautiful baby guinea pigs...so I couldn't stop myself and i adopted this guy(also still nameless xDD)
I hope you liked our story and that I will become a better mommy for my piggies and in a few years a good vet for them(i want to be a vet, and i entered uni this year:))
kisses from my boys:heart:

Welcome-you came to the right place.
Sorry for your losses-it's tough.

Your pigs are adorable! You must have a huge cage for all of them.
We love pics-so share more when you can!

Sure, I will post more pictures soon. Unforutunately i still have a small cage(1mx60cm) but untill I manage to build one by myself(unfortunately here in romania is hard to find all i need for a big cage) i leave the door opened and put a doggy pillow outside and a wooden bridge inside(the youngest piggy cant jump so high. So they use my whole room as a cage xDD outside they have a lot of accessories and when they wanna eat or drink or sleep they go back to the cage ^.^ Still I hope they will have their cage and I'll have my room back soon xDD

Welcome to the forum! Im sorry to hear about your losses. It must have been hard loosing multiple pigs :( Im glad that your willing to learn more on bettering your piggys lives! What kind of cage do you have? Also, have you cam up with names for the other piggys yet? They are really cute! If you have questions, feel free to ask!

It's a good thing you adopted little soohyun at least he died after having some better care than at the petstore but it's still very sad about kevin too:( Your boys are very cute and adorable and the little brown and white one is sooo tiny and cute.

I blame myself for Kevin's death cuz I should've been there. Still I took him from a guy who was using them and hamsters as snake food :( I'm so sorry I was hospitalized when he got sick :(
Now to answer your questions. I dont have a picture with my cage it was bought from the store it has 1m L x 60cm l x around 60 cm h. i'll show you guys of the cage of a friend(same kind of cage)
right in the front it has a small door but because the youngest cant jump so high i put a doggy pillow outside and a wooden bridge inside so all of them can go out and play :).
In romania there are only 3 doctors that can really treat guinea pigs(and other small animals) so (I know it sounds a bit silly) my dream is to become the best vet in romania lol.
I remember that 4 years ago when i decided to become a vet it was because I wanted to be able to treat all the animals that don't have someone to love them ^.^
