  1. Frustrated: Re: Shared expenses for guineapigs between my BF and I

    Pay their expenses. When you break up, he could want to take them but if you're sole provider, they're all yours. My guess is, he's probably not keen on them and hope the burden of paying for them...

    Cleaning: Re: Looking for upright vacuum

    I use it all the time and don't even use my Dyson anymore. The thing I like the best about the Shark is how lightweight it is. The extra attachments are a big plus and the long cord makes it easy...
  3. Re: looking to adopt two females would greatly prefer spayed! columbia,MO

    Wow! You're really lucky to have a vet who only charges you that much.
  4. Re: looking to adopt two females would greatly prefer spayed! columbia,MO

    I'm curious what your adoption fee is for spayed females. Do you have a vet who donates services for you? I'd imagine a spay would be an expensive procedure and you'd be lucky if you have someone...

    Frustrated: Re: I don't know what to do about this

    I'd let your dad handle it. Give your dad information about proper care and nutrition for guinea pigs and ask your dad to pass it along to him. Depending on your age, his friend might not take you...

    Aggression: Re: problem between adult guinea and babies

    When you have multiples, the dynamics can change, even after they've established dominance. Last year, I brought in a new young female, Pinky. The dominant one, Ditto, was was immediately challenged...
  7. Level of Effort: Re: A friend for Henry? (question about a long haired breed and buying from Craigslis

    I've owned most breeds with the exception of skinnies. Personally, I think Americans are the easiest to care for. I've owned a lot of teddies and I love them but they're prone to skin disorders due...
  8. Level of Effort: Re: A friend for Henry? (question about a long haired breed and buying from Craigslis

    I've had three texels and resorted to cutting their hair short to keep them tidy. Personally, I wouldn't get another texel due to the amount of grooming they needed. Short haired ones are a lot...

    Sad: Re: Give away or keep?

    They have each other for company. As long as they're housed in an adequate sized cage that's kept clean and they have a well balanced diet, I wouldn't be concerned. Most people either have school or...

    Hay: Re: how to conserve hay?

    Eating and burrowing in the hay are both parts of the total experience for guinea pigs. I don't consider that wasting the hay but rather enjoying it to the max.
  11. Behavior: Re: Let new pigs stay in hidey or force them to be brave?

    Welcome, MadScienceMum. I was trying to get a closer look at your little ones. I'd love to see more photos.

    Impaction: Re: Is Walnut Litter Safe or is it too risky?

    I wouldn't use it. Can you post a photo of your cage so we can see how big it is? Guinea pigs can't be litter trained. Sometimes they'll find a spot that they prefer to use but since they poop all...
  13. Media: Re: Illegal to Own Just One Guinea Pig in Switzerland

    I didn't see anything specific to guinea pigs. My guess is, it's related to breeding or lab animals and the law is meant to offer some protection to them. A lot of our animal rights laws are written...

    What breed?: Re: New baby girl

    Depending upon whether her hair grows longer or not, she's probably a Silkie or Silkie mix.
  15. Cleaning: Re: Cannot afford carefresh bedding, what's the best alternative bedding?

    Kiln dried pine is an alternative that's cheaper than Carefresh. I you use fleece, you need an absorbent layer and you have to factor in paying for laundry detergent. If you rent, there's an added...
  16. Fighting: Re: Very aggressive female babies won't get along with anybody - is it puberty?

    I'd let them be. They're establishing their hierarchy. I've had a trio together for some time and they still go through phases where they test one another. It's normal.
  17. Media: Re: Illegal to Own Just One Guinea Pig in Switzerland

    I'd like to read the law. I found reference to a Swiss Animal Protection Ordinance put into effect in the 1980's but didn't see any reference to guinea pigs. There was a section on animal...

    General: Re: Apartment Dilema ...

    Take photos of your setup so she can see how it's arranged. Offer to leave a larger than required deposit to cover damages.
  21. Fighting: Re: Very aggressive female babies won't get along with anybody - is it puberty?

    How do you know she's not a lethal? Her eyes are small and she's a red eyed white. Blind guinea pigs adapt quickly to their environment so she might be blind but still able to navigate around. Guinea...
  22. Fighting: Re: Very aggressive female babies won't get along with anybody - is it puberty?

    The ramp itself can be a spot they get territorial with. Nipping is normal. Rolling around in a ball fighting is reason to separate. Mine nip at each other a lot. They're pushing each others'...
  23. Fighting: Re: Very aggressive female babies won't get along with anybody - is it puberty?

    Is the white one a lethal? Sounds like the conditions at the shelter might be the root of the problem if they were all housed in crowded conditions. They probably already established a hierarchy. ...
  24. Fighting: Re: Very aggressive female babies won't get along with anybody - is it puberty?

    I'd take out the tunnel and orange thing. Keep the area completely open so none of them can get trapped. If they can hop over the edge of the hay bin, I'd remove the wood ramp. Same with the pigloo....
  25. Fighting: Re: Very aggressive female babies won't get along with anybody - is it puberty?

    Can you post a photo of their cage and its surroundings? It might be something environmental. Have you had them from birth?
