    Re: Intro

    When I saw your response to my post, I went down that rabbit hole... I think it took me at least an hour to emerge! I need me a few of them shirts...

    Injury: Re: Jasmine's Medical Thread

    Owww... poor baby! :-(

    Unfortunately I have no experience with this, so no real tips. Maybe a cool compress would make her eye feel better so she doesn't try to scratch at it as much? I don't...

    Play: Re: New pigs aren't interested in floortime

    My two enjoy floor time, but to different degrees. Abby loves it and has from the very beginning. She runs around exploring the "floor time only" stuff, then takes a break, and then starts all over...

    Hay: Re: GuineaDad Timothy Hay.

    Really? I've not heard that one. I know Little Adventures gives pea flakes to her piggies as treats, and my two absolutely adore them. Is it because they're high protein?

    Conditions: Abby's Medical Thread Part Two

    I'm going to start out by apologizing to bpatters if this wasn't the right way to do this, but it was the best I could think of. I just thought it would make more sense going forward if Abby's thread...
  7. Diet: Re: How much bell pepper should a guinea pig have a day?

    I was going off my memory of what I've read, but I just checked the chart on GuineaLynx... yep. Orange isn't listed, but vitamin c high-low goes yellow-red-green. (Sugar is yellow-unknown, red...
  8. Diet: Re: How much bell pepper should a guinea pig have a day?

    I feed mine about 1/8 of a pepper each. (Or 1 to 1-1/2 mini pepper each; depends on what I have.) What I've heard is that green and yellow are better for daily feeding because they have less sugar...

    Re: Midwest vs C&C vs other cages

    BumpTrunk: C&C cages work even with interested cats. You just need to have a cover on the cage and enough space that the guinea pigs can get out of reach of curious paws.
  10. Behavior: Re: Is Poop as well contained in a 1x2 loft over 2x3 formation as a regular 2x4?

    They poop wherever they happen to be. I've lucked out in that my two pee mostly just in their kitchen area, but they poop everywhere. And be forewarned: some aren't too discriminate about where...

    Frustrated: Re: Emergency!!!!

    Call the vet; ask him/her what to do. Many vets have quarantine-friendly procedures set up in case of an emergency. Which this is.
  12. Aggression: Re: Aggression in Bonded Pair(Boars) Escalating

    A pair of boars really need at least 10.5 square feet, and that's all on one level, not split across two. So likely it's a combination of Carl being sick and both of them feeling crowded that's...

    Behavior: Re: New Guinea Pigs

    First possibility I can think of... Luna was fine being by herself in the cage, but adding Nahla is making her feel crowded. You said "new cage" -- the one in your picture, or a different one that's...

    Re: New preggo guinea pig

    Yikes... Not good at all! The shelters we have around here (central Indiana) don't do that. Yeah...no. Forget the shelters. GP Finder is still an option. Maybe newspaper listing or word of mouth. I...
  15. Aggression: Re: My guinea pig had a baby and is biting her.

    The cage size sounds okay. Maybe Persephone is stressed from the pregnancy/birth and taking it out on Nugget? I don't know.

    Another possibility... you said that Nugget was the runt of the litter....

    Re: New preggo guinea pig

    You could also check with animal shelters near you to see if any of them will take guinea pigs. Or post a listing with GP Finder (there's a link at the top of the forum).

    Good luck!
  17. Behavior: Re: Does anyone else's piggy do this? What's your piggies funniest behavior?

    Tannim isn't much on being petted in his cage -- just top of the head and around the ears, and only when he's in the mood -- but when I have him out for a grooming session, he LOVES being brushed!...

    Keeping Warm: Re: Outside temperatures

    I personally would wait until it's closer to 60... 40 isn't that much above freezing, and the grass would probably still be damp.

    Upper Levels: Re: Need help with ideas for guinea pig loft

    The ramps sold at the GuineaPigPages store are 25" long for a 14" rise, which comes out to about 32.6 degrees... I wouldn't go much steeper than that. Especially if one of your pigs doesn't really...

    Fleece: Re: Middles for DIY liners

    Yes, we're all human, and yes, we make mistakes. Still, some terminology is more offensive than others. I got mine off Amazon, and my search term was "washable bed pads".

    Question: isn't the point of the absorbent layer in the liners to absorb urine? I just got my order of bed pads, but I haven't sewn them into liners yet. The waterproof layer is on the bottom of the...
