  1. Frustrated: Re: My piggies still don't seem to get used to me!

    Ditto ItsaZoo !!

    Most piggies will always run from getting picked up. When you scoop them up from above, all their swooping-hawk-is-about-to-eat-me instincts kick in.Try your best not to loom over...
  2. What breed?: Re: Discovering your Piggy's breed/colors/pattern

    Seeing BBs_piggies Harriet ( see how much he's like her?! ) made realize I need to update my post on my Robin Hood! I had not had him very long when I made it, and he was a little underweight baby...

    Chat Re: Has anyone seen this movie

    I saw it when I was little, too! I remember liking it, but I wasn't really obsessed with it ( probably because I never had piggies before now! ). I only remember the broad strokes of the story: high...

  8. Fresh Food: Re: Best ways to keep veggies/etc fresh?

    I would think they wouldn't, too! It's just something I've read. The biggest hit against frozen veggies seems to be it changes the enzymes which can cause GI upset in piggies. So much contradicting...
  9. Chat Re: Coronavirus: Can our piggies catch it

    petluv I hope you--and her!-- survive the tantrums over no fresh veggies lol and that your stores get them back in! I just learned frozen vegetables can be ok in an emergency, as long as they're not...
  10. Fresh Food: Re: Best ways to keep veggies/etc fresh?

    What I've read is most store bought frozen veggies are cooked or blanched before being frozen, have extra preservatives, etc. ...but I don't know how much truth is really in it. I'm sure they're...

  12. Fresh Food: Re: Best ways to keep veggies/etc fresh?

    Thank you! That's awesome; I mistakenly thought you couldn't freeze their veggies, since they can't have frozen bagged veggies ( like frozen peas and carrots ) I'm guessing that's because they're...
  13. Fresh Food: Best ways to keep veggies/etc fresh?

    I'd really like to hear fellow piggy owners methods for keeping their veggies and greens fresh! Especially bell pepper and lettuces.

    Since grocery stores are pretty crazy right now ( with the...

    Hay: Re: Oxbow vs. Small Pet Select

    I've never used Small Pet Select hay, but we have recently switched to Oxbow from Kaytee. It's definitely better than Kaytee and my piggies LOVE it!

    Lately the Kaytee was a lot like how the SPS...

  17. What breed?: Re: Discovering your Piggy's breed/colors/pattern

    That is such a unique pattern! Snickers is a handsome piggy :D

    I think his breed is American...is it just me, or is his head extra fluffy? I thought it was a crest, like a Crested piggy, but it...

    I can relate to all this, too!!! It grates on my nerves because so many people underappreciate just how personable, social, sweet, and sensitive guinea pigs are...and that leads to the awful...

    Chewing: Re: Safe HARD chew toys...

    I googled the chew bowl, and it looks like it's ok as long as she's supervised and doesn't eat too much of it at once. I'd just never leave it in her cage for long periods of time :)

    How Much?: Re: Going Through Hay Fast
