    Angry Guinea For Adoption

    I have one Male Guinea Pig named Hamlet that I no longer wish to feed and house. For some reason, he does not like me at all, and will not let me touch him. He has my other Guinea under his command as well, my other Guinea will never set still with him in the room. I have them seperated because Hamlet will not let him alone, and constantly picks fights. Hamlet is not a very nice pig, and I cannot take having to clean his cage without watching my back constantly. If anyone is interested in him Please let me know, otherwise hes going to the pet store or something??
    I am located in mid michigan, USA

    Oh no.. I hope you don't end up sending him to a pet store... I'm sure you can find someone without resorting to a pet store

    You shouldn't really judge without knowing the situation. I had a cat who was a complete bully and we racked up $100's on vet bills for the other cats he constantly beat up. He was a marvelous people cat but we just couldn't keep him for the sake of the other 3 cats. I would have never thought I would give up one of my animals because I always believed that taking on an animal was a committment that needed to be upheld. However, in this situation we had to do what was best for the family and we found him a new home where he was the only cat. I would hate to have people judging me about that decision. Give the girl a break. I'm sure she's not happy about it.

    I wasnt critisizing her. I was critisizing pet stores. I have had to rehome a bully pig myself. I just couldent give him what he needed. Now at his new home he can have all of his needs met. I actually applaud guinea girl for recognizing that her pig needed someone different, that she couldnt provide for his specific needs. Its horrible that some people would put her down for doing what she thought was best for her pig and her family.

    I didn't mean you, tashagurl. I was replying to lipglossartist, who called her a selective guinea pig owner.

    Obviously, you must rather watch your pets suffer to a bully than find a place where it will cause no harm to other pigs. Thank you for not understanding!

    no, thats not what I meant either, dont get so bent out of shape about it. But as an owner of ANY animal, you have not be smart enough to understand (especially) with GP'S that no all are a match, nothing guarentees that they are going to get along at ALL, especially boars. All I meant is it is the owners responsibilty for the animals they bring into the home, not the animals fault for not getting along. You must be prepared to provide seperate housing in that case, not just abandon them or give them away.

    Also, the MAJORITY of guinea pigs hate being held anyways. It is nothing personal from you GP to you, they dont like being picked up, petted etc. You can not blame and animal for these things, they are animals. Im pretty sure they dont want to be in our homes in the first place. We're the ones that stuck them in the forceful situations in the first place.

    If you are totally dead set on getting "rid" of your guinea pig, please try and find a good home with an experienced owner.

    I never meant to offend, and for that I apologize.

    Lightbulb

    (When you read this, please do not make it into an angry tone in your head, this is simply conversation, not anger, or yelling, and whatnot)
    I was not bent out of shape in anyway, I was not suprised at all that someone would be so rude. You were drawing conclusions on something you know nothing about. I do understand that it is my responsibility. I DO have a seperate cage for him, and obviously I took the time to post on here to find a good home for him. I believe that these are truly good people, who care about their pigs, and so do I, and that is why I am trying to get him a better home. If I didnt care, or took no responsibility, I could have let him go in the woods or took him to the store but I am not doing so. Also, I am an experienced owner, who is the daughter of another experienced owner. So don't think for one second that I am one of those little girls that goes to the pet shop and has a fit because they are soooooo cute. Please, this is the internet, it is a big pile of faceless people who use text to get their ideas through to others. I am sorry if my main post seemed a bit out of line and careless, but I care a lot, I just get frustrated that I cannot do anything to make this guinea happy!
