    Re: Remember Me Thursday.

    I was not, Kelsie. And I am ashamed to admit it. But I will definitely be familiarizing myself with it, and I will be making a reminder in my phone calendar for that right now. Thank you!

    Not strictly guinea pig related, but I wanted to put this out there as it concerns ALL furbabies.

    Glad to hear you got them looked after! Do keep us updated on how they're doing and don't hesitate to ask if you have questions.

    Update for Punkin:

    X rays are done. Molars are fine, no elongated roots. The issue appears to be with one of his upper incisors.


    Looking at the x rays, his upper left incisor is infected. ...

  17. Re: help Problems training my guinea pig to potty train

    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm so sorry to hear of Scamp's passing. May she rest in peace.

    Peeve's age obviously has to be taken into account, and what you would do for a cage mate does also. A new cage mate would likely...
