    My two female guinea pigs are Urinating on each other and mounting

    I've had them both together about a month. I had Nibbler about a week before we were able to find her Pliny as a companion. Nibbler is probably a month or two older than pliny, there is a bit of a size difference. They get along great, snuggling and eating together but every once in a while Nibbler chases Pliny around with her nose in her danger zone. Then tries to mount poor Pliny but she resists by literally spraying Nibbler with pee. I've never seen anything like it. Any advice?

    It's totally normal. One of the less endearing things that sows do is spray pee at other pigs. I had to put a tall piece of coroplast in my cage, along the back wall, because they kept spraying the wall.

    That said, do turn them both over and compare their private parts to make sure they're both female. We've had lots of sow pairs that weren't, with resulting pups.
