    General: Re: What do younger guinea pigs eat?

    They should be eating the same foods you're giving your older piggie, although probably not the same amount, and I've heard that younger ones are usually given more pellets. I also give my pigs (both...

    Pigsitting: Re: Need pigsitter for mid dec, in PA areas!

    I'd consider Craigslist just to appeal to a wider pool of people; but to avoid bad petsitters, I'd interview them VERY thoroughly. Test their knowledge on all things piggie related, and their...

    I'm an engineer and I've worked on high efficiency topload washers before. I would recommend that you put it into the bleach or fabric softener compartment. The reason those compartments are there is...

    Biting: He only bites when I'm NOT holding him

    So my 4mo old is biting my fingertips, knuckles. I don't know how to respond to him when he does this. I've read a lot of sites, threads, and posts that discuss biting, but none of them seem to...

    Adopting: Re: Adopting a buddy for Houdini

    Thanks for your help guys. I was probably going to adopt this guy anyway (someone's son just doesn't want it anymore - how sad and wrong!) but I wanted to know if it was considered a definite no-no...

    Adopting: Re: Adopting a buddy for Houdini

    Isn't that just as likely if you adopt two brothers? They'll go through puberty at the same time as well. Are they more likely to fight too? And when is the adolescent stage?

    Photos: Re: Sleeping Guinea pigs!

    My little Houdini was pooped after his evening floor time; he must have run at least 20 circles around me. See his drooping eyes? haha

    Poll: General: Re: Still have not named these two

    I'm not too sure about what names fit your 9mo piggie, because the names you listed are definitely not my kind of names. She definitely does have a unique look about her.

    But when I saw your baby...

    C&C: Re: Please Help Me Choose My New Cage

    If you can handle a 2x4, I'd definitely go for that, because it's just enough space even with no loft. If you are concerned about price (especially as you add on more stuff like a roof), maybe you...

    Re: New to the piggie world

    Thanks everyone!

    foggycreekcavy - he IS an escape artist! I've only had him for a week and a half, but I've noticed that he's smart and catches on quick.

    The first day I had him I was building...

    Behavior: Re: Not sure how to work with him

    Thanks everyone. I know guinea pigs are prey animals, I just didn't know exactly how far to push in terms of bonding with him. He did a LOT better yesterday, and he's been fine with random noises in...

    Behavior: Re: Not sure how to work with him

    I haven't had him checked yet, but I don't think he has mites. He doesn't seem to scratch much, except for about 5 minutes after lap or floor time (he scratches and paws his face; I'm assuming he's...

    Behavior: Re: Not sure how to work with him

    So does that mean I should stop taking him out of his cage for the next few weeks?

    That's something I was confused about. I hear different opinions: some say I should hold him and take him out of...

    Hi everyone-

    I just bought my first guinea pig last week, 3-mo-old boy named Houdini (aka Hootie). I was thinking that I would be able to give him enough attention that I didn't need to get two...
