Hi, I'm Christine and come from the land of Chinchillas! I'm not a Guinea pig owner, but came to learn a bit more about piggies. I had a pair when I was younger, and so enjoyed them, and their vocalization.

I generally make chinchilla toys, houses with art work (human grade food coloring) but lately have had a few guinea pig people come to me, asking that I make things for their piggies. I'm always wanting to do what is best for the furries, whether they be chinchillas, rats, or guinea pigs, so I am here to learn!

Welcome Twilight Chins! Piggies aren't as active with toys as much as chinchillas are. They usually enjoy things where they can hide in or run through like a bed or tunnel. Mine sometimes like to perch on things and sleep on them. May be you can make beds and tunnels for your piggy clients, a lot of people have been doing this and selling them online, you could use your talent in art to make your self stand out. :)

Those guinea pigs were so well behaved compared to the Chins, that I do remember! Thanks for the welcome!
