Hey, I'm Megan! This is the first time I have ever owned Guinea Pigs... I have had them for almost three weeks now... I have two girls (sisters, actuallly), both albino, and both babies! It has been fun trying to figure out what they need and what they like, but also a challenge! One (Nibbler) will eat veggies and fruits and doesn't like to be held unless wraped in fleece and cuddled... The other (Rosea) loves to be held and purs non-stop when you hold her, but won't eat veggies or fruit (which is very frusterating!) They both like to sleep next to each other and cuddle! But when one is sleeping (usually Rosea) and the other wants to play (usually Nibbler) there is a lot of fighting and pushing! (No harsh fighting, just more of a get off me I was sleeping fight!) I am having so much fun with them, and am hoping to learn lots from here... So far, have some great cage ideas... They are in a 2x4 homemade C&C cage (homemade, meaning they have a plastic tarp under their blankets, and fleece) but soon that will all change, I am hoping to get them to a two story place with storage under them, have not figured out how to do that homemade yet! (I don't like having to buy something I can make on my own, cheaper and usually better) Sorry, I know this is very long, but I'm a talker and LOVE to talk about my babies!! :heart::heart:
Thanks for reading,
Megan!
