    It can cause an intestinal blockage. Just take the decorations out.

    I'll keep an eye out for them, they've been pooping like normal and they haven't chewed any more since I put the deco out of reach for them

    Anyone that sees this: both of my guinea pigs squeal in pain if i brush the fur on their bottoms, up. I dont do it intentionally but i have done it acidentally a couple of times. Are all guinea pigs like this or do mine need to go to the vet?

    You're brushing their fur in the wrong direction, if I'm reading your post correctly. No pig likes to be stroked opposite to the direction their fur grows. Sounds perfectly normal to me.
