    Re: Singing piggy!

    How cool! Chirping is so cute. My Quinn does it, but I haven't heard it since we moved to our new house since I spend a lot of time upstairs in the evening.

    Exercise: Re: How to do floor time properly?

    As you noted, you're a new piggy owner; it takes guinea pigs a while to get comfortable in their surroundings. Remember, they're prey animals, and until they learn differently, you're a giant...

  4. Media: Re: Illegal to Own Just One Guinea Pig in Switzerland

    I did a lot of Google Fu to make sure it seemed reasonably true before I posted it, and I found a lot of articles but could not find the law itself (maybe because of the language). This veterinary...
  5. Media: Illegal to Own Just One Guinea Pig in Switzerland

    I learned something new and interesting today. We all know guinea pigs are social critters that do best with a friend, but in Switzerland it's actually illegal to own just one. There's even a guinea...

    Adopting: Re: Considering This Friend for Quinn

    All is still going well, although Quinn gets offended when Poogy tries to play piggy train with her. I'm shocked at the easy transition, especially since Quinn and Amy were never best buddies. More...

    And here she is...Miss Poogy at home with Quinn! They're been quite peaceful so far, so tomorrow Miss Poogy gets her badly-needed nail trim. She's even more of a veggie hound than Quinn, if such a...

    Re: New Guinea Pig Parent!!

    I'm so glad he made it through the surgery, and it sounds like he's doing as well as can be expected. I'm sure he'll love living with a girlfriend once he's "safe." I see you're a fellow Floridian....

    Joy: My Guinea Pigs Over the Years

    Yikes, I didn't even think about dormant illnesses. She was originally a Petsmart piggy, so of course the poor girl originally came from a mill. They're together now, so I've got my fingers crossed....

    I'm glad that your Petsmart is doing this. Petco here does it, but the Petsmarts all say they can't (and never give a good reason why). Just make sure it's actually an adoption and not a money maker...

    Pet Stores: Re: Wanna know why we don't support pet stores?

    Sadly, that video is making no impact on the Petsmart in my area. I was at Target and popped into the Petsmart next door, and one of the guinea pigs in a tank of four or five had eyes full of goo. It...

    Thanks, all, for the kind thoughts. That's a great idea about a neutered male. My husband did some searching on Petfinder last night, and I'm keeping an eye on Craigslist. He's the primary piggy...
