    Re: Who Are We?

    I have 2 little piggies. Right now they have a cage that is going to be too small fairly soon. They are right about 3 months old and almost one pound each.
    We are going to build our cavy cage next weekend,I hope.
    We are in Hawaii and are having a little trouble locating the grids.
    I am going to try walmart next.

    Re: Who Are We?

    I technically represent a male and a female because my boyfriend and myself are a team when it comes to our animals.

    He helped me with my cavy cage and the transport of Gus-Gus and Sharpie. He also buys them things, which is so nice. ^_^

    Re: Who Are We?

    As an older male I do seem to be in the minority here. These small furry companions are excellant for apartment dwellers. One of the reasons after Harry made his initial post to the guys in my veterans group I had him keep talking to them was to spread the word.

    And the way most of us enjoy designing and building things you have no idea the fun I had working on the cage and periodic alterations.

    Re: Who Are We?

    I am surprised at the demographic here. Im a 22 year old guy finishing up undergraduate here in Texas. Ive had Calico for about 5 months, next saturday im going to the Texas Rustlers Guinea Pig rescue (Anyone from the area, this place is amazing, check it out.), hopefully to get her a baby sister. Despite the poll results, it seems us men have come out guns blazing in this thread pronouncing our minority.

    As harry mentioned, there is a strong appeal in the way of building things for the cages and coming up with ever more elaborate systems of comfort and delight for ones little charges. The guy who rigged up and old PSU for piggie-AC set me off for hours thinking up things I could do with my mountain of discarded computer parts.

    Stay strong, brothers

    HEY! Are you trying to somehow undermine our mission? This forum is nothing more then a front for the feminist movement to take over the world through proper animal care and welfare.

    We do not appreciate you trying to get the men all riled up just when we got them to like stuffed animals, lace and flowers and to openly cry and share their feelings.
    Everyone has the right to make an ass out of themselves. You can't let the world judge you too much.

    Re: Who Are We?

    Sometimes I wish I were a guy because being a female can sure be difficult sometimes. Ah well, maybe in the next life. Anyways, I am a 20 year old female with two piggies and a 2X4 cage.

    Re: Who Are We?

    I'm male, 28, and engaged for two years. I live in the UK about two hours north of London. We have six guineas between us, (four are mine, two are my fiance's) We do not breed guineas, but could possibly be considered 'collectors', as we have guineas of various breeds, and specifically chose to get Himalayans and a Rex. We're planning on getting another guinea in about 4-5 months, as my Rex will be vacating his hutch for a larger one, and it would be wrong to have an empty hutch when it could give a rescue guinea a good home. My fiance would like us to get a sheltie, but having had one before, I know how much grooming and care they require, so we will likely not get one of those.
    As for accomodation, they are custom built hutches that exceed the requirements listed for size - guinea ratios.

    Re: Who Are We?

    I accidentally only have my age checked . i didn't realize the rest of the answers until I clicked submit. I live in USA, and have 2 piggies. I don't know if my cage size is right for them. It is a 2x3 grid.

    EDIT: I noticed that is says the minimum is the same for 1, so it is probably good .
