    Shaking when held but no other sounds

    Iíve been holding my youngest guinea pig while snuggling and all he does is shake like vibrating shaking of his body.

    he doesnít make any other noises or sounds.

    his brother is more vocal when having lap time

    but should I be worried with the youngest one just shaking and not really being as vocal as his brother ?

    My piggy did that when we first got her almost 3 months ago. For the first 6-8 weeks. Now she just gets squirmy if I pick her up or hold her too long. Sheís like mommy thatís all Iím giving you so put me back or Iím going myself.

    Update: over the weekend, I gave Jon a bath, not only does he have more luscious and soft fur, but he was smelly but now looks good and healthy! He was recovering from ringworm...
    The shaking has stopped, and he now enjoys burrowing inside my sweater pouch pockets.

    Maybe the shaking was just a nervous thing? I'm still not sure why he was shaking but now is nothing but a lovey dovey little guy..
