We just got our babies last week 3 of them, and I am allergic to the timothy hay. My allergy pills help the major stuff and my eye drops help the itchy eyes. The big problem is when they crawl around my neck I get itchy hives everywhere they have touched me. Well I can't stop snuggling them, they are just to darn sweet, and like to snuggle into my neck. Any suggestion?
My next concern is am I giving them to many veggies. I put about 3 plates full of them in a day so far. They don't eat all of it, but I don't like whilted lettuce so I don't figure they do either. I give them romanie, tomatoes, baby carrots, and either kale or parsley. Then once a day I put in a few pieces of fruit or I should say I hand feed them a piece of fruit oranges, apples and kiwi is what we like so far. Is that to much? Not enough?
Does anyone know why I have a biting guinea pig? Could he just not like me? He loves my 5 year old and they will sit on the floor and watch tv together and he purrs and coos and snuggles into his lap until he sees me and he wil run over and bite my toe or my finger or whatever is handy. He bites hard enough to leave bruises, but doesn't break the skin. I am more gentle with him than the kids, and I feed them! When he does it the kids laugh and he hurrys back into the 5 year olds lap like nothing happened.
Wow sorry to plague you all with all of that. I just want them to be happy little critters. Thank for your help!
