    Talking My new piggies :D

    Hiya, this is a post about my babies.
    Itsy and bitsy, the two guinea pigs.

    Unfortunatly I cant put pigtures on as I dont understand what URL is about.

    So I think they both are great, Itsy is a light chocolate brown and has light coloured ears.
    Bitsy has black and Tanned/ Orange with black ears.
    both very very cute indeed.
    I'm a bit worried about Bitsy bullying Itsy, as she keeps biting her on the bum, enough for her to jump away but they call for eachother, so why does she do it I have no idea.

    Both are making progress as today they let me put their dry food back in the bowl they tipped over, I was able to do that with them still out and NOT hiding away from me.

    I love them very much, so does my mujm and brother .

    Or you could register at Free Image and Video Hosting - Photo Image Hosting Site : Photobucket.com and copy the image location from there and plug (paste) it into the little icon above (when you go to post a message yelow/grey, with mountains and sun) I didn't like this idea at first, but then I tried it and I like it a lot better than having my pictures disapear after one veiw for each person. I am glad that you made a home for some lucky pigs, hope you have a great experiance.

    Sorry have not updated people for a while. They are doing well. Just one problem with bitsy she insists on bitting my brother on his chest or fingers the hole time she has bitten about six times now. Here are pigtures.

    They are so adorable!

    One thing I notice is that they live in a petstore cage? This could be the reason why they are biting each other because petstore cages are NOT big enough for One and definitely not Two guinea pigs. You need to get a bigger cage if this is the case. Guinea pigs tend to fight more in small cages, get bored and don't get enough excersize which ultimately leads to obesity, stress and other serious health problems. Have a look at the front page of this website for the right INNER dimensions needed for a cage. On the links to the sides you will find information on how to get and make your own cage or how to buy one. You can also read all the testimonials of people who changed from a small cage to a proper sized cage.

    As for the reason why they are biting your brother it could have several reasons:

    1. Mites (See an exotic vet or treat yourself with ivermectin, see guinealynx.info for more information on mites)
    2. Tooth problems (See an exotic vet A.S.A.P if they stop eating or have too long teeth)
    3. That your brother isn't holding or petting them right.
    4. You just have a chewer (My Battlestar starts ripping up the towel after some time, it's her way of saying she wants to go back most of the time but I honestly think she thinks it's funny as well!)

    Read these two websites entirely and adjust or improve anything that needs changing (such as the petstore cage):

    Guinea Pig Cages, Your Cavy At Home
    Guinea Lynx :: A Medical and Care Guide for Your Guinea Pig

    Best of luck! Let me know if you need help with anything!

    Thats where they go while I clean the cage its not there home. Its only for and hour or so. But she bites only when he cuddles her. Their home is wooden.

    Do you have the inside lined with something waterproof? Wood is horrible for absorbing urine and breeding bacteria and mold.
