Hey everyone!
I am a new GP owner... of 3 now. I got my first one in January, adopted 1 from a shelter in February, and got my last one a few days ago.
Noah who is a white/tan Teddy GP is 5-6 months old.
Caleb who is Brown short hair I saved from a shelter 2 months old.
Joshua who is a salt/pepper Perv. 1-2 months old.

I currently have a Midwest cage 48x30x28. Since they are young they are ok. But I am differently looking at getting a double Decker C&C in the next month or so needing to get the space bigger and write dimensions right. They have all been the the vet locally here in the Bay area, CA all in good health. Cost me 50$ for the visit which is a wonderful price for all 3 to be seen.

I am normally a hamster, fish type person but sum how landed on a guinea pig .. now 3. My mother loves them but is as timid as they come as well. I travel 2 times a month for a few days and have family members that clean up and entertain the piggies. They are well loved.

They have 2 hay racks, always filled, toys, different toys and tunnels, 2-3 Water bottles. Fruits daily.
I have fleece but always willing to learn more of their needs and better home environment. Hope you enjoy the pictures and any help would be welcomed.

Hi SimbaDC650 - So glad you are here! You will definitely learn a lot.

We LOVE piggy pics! There is an easier way to show your piggy pictures directly on the forum. If you look at all the buttons above the text box, you will see one that looks like a window with a tree in it. If you hover over it, it says, "insert image". If you click that, it will give you an option to pick from photos saved on your computer that will show up directly in the thread.

Hi! Welcome to the forum, your piggies are very cute! As @Molasses (http://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/member.php?u=26868) said, they need some veggies! Fruit is rather high in sugar, and is not good for them to have daily. Once or twice a week is fine though! Veggies must be given daily however for them to receive vitamin C! Below is a link to a great chart about veggies, I suggest you check it out! Tells you what veggies can be fed, and how often.
