    Talking Hello from my piggy Cinnamon and me!

    Hi, everyone... I'm pretty new here, just joined yesterday and already actively asking questions and whatnot!

    I live in New York, and regrettably, my little piggy was bought at Petco. I was rather misinformed and there were no shelters in my state that showed to be rehoming piggies! I haven't been allowed any pets all my life, and I probably won't be able to get another guinea pig to keep mine company, sadly. But I do give her SO much attention!

    Anyway, here's some pictures of Cinnamon, my first real pet and cute (and clever) guinea pig! I have no idea what breed she is... (If you know and want to help, please reply!)

    Hello and welcome to the forum! I'm Stephanie and my two girls are Princess Penelope and Miss Maybelline.

    Don't feel too bad about being misinformed on correct guinea pig care, most people are. What's important is that you're learning from your mistakes and want what's best for your piggy. You're going to make a great piggy momma! (Or dad? Lol)

    I would let your parents know that Cinnamon needs a friend to be fully happy and healthy, they'll probably say no but also tell them about this site and have them take a look. It might help. I know my Penelope loved to get attention from me when she was alone, which I gave all the time because I work from home, but the second I would put her back she would just sit in the corner most of the time looking all depressed. The only exciting time for her was veggies and then afterwards she would run laps . Then I got her Maybelline, and BAM silly goober pigs to an extreme! Lol They talk to each other, sleep together, eat together, and run laps together. They are both so much happier to have a piggy friend to live with. Hehe it's super cute!

    Her breed looks like a Teddy to me. She is very cute!

    Aww, cinnamon is really cute! I'm in NY too, and just picked up two rescue pigs. No one on craigslist got back to me but if you do one day decide to get her a friend I'm sure you can find one to adopt.

    Re: Hello from my piggy Cinnamon and me!

    Hi and welcome to the forum. I'm sorry that you were misinformed. Pet stores are usually after the money and don't care about the animals wellbeing. My first pig I got from a pet store then 3 years later I found this site. Now I would never get another pig from a pet store no matter how cute. Just today in pet smart I saw 2 adorable guinea pigs but I'm ignoring my urges and am going to adopt these 2 boars at our humane society.

    Re: Hello from my piggy Cinnamon and me!

    Hi, welcome to the forum!
    I was misinformed when I first got my first pet (hamster), don't worry, it happens and the important thing is not to do it again 'you learn from your mistakes'
    Your little girl might be a Teddy or Rex, maybe a mixed breed - she is very cute!
    Try showing your parents this forum, and the home website about guinea pig companions because they do so much better with a friend as we can't give them 24/7 attention.

    Hope it works for you!
