    Im really worried!!! Please help!

    Oh my. I really feel sorry for you, and me, Coffee and Muffin all send our love and support. Do you have room for the babies when they come? And do you know if CB were living with brothers or sisters before you got her?

    I think she's blind

    Coffee seems to be doing really well. I bet she's mad at me, giving her all the eye drops, keeping her from doing what she likes to be doing. But now we're down to three drops a day, one in the morning and two before we go to bed. Actually, I think Muffin (Coffee's roommate) is the one of the...

    I think she's blind

    Hello again. I've been at the vet's for a recheck of Coffee's eye. Everything looked a lot better, the cornea was almost clear and the vet was really happy with the improvement, she didn't think it would work out as well as it did. Coffee is still on medication, but overall she's fine. Some...

    I think she's blind

    Hi everybody! I went to the vet with Coffee this morning, and she actually seemed to be knowing what she was talking about. I should probably add that yesterday evening I noticed a piece of hay sticking out of the mucous membrane right below the eye. I checked many times during the day, but it...

    I think she's blind

    I know I have to go there as soon as possible, but I can't get there 'til tomorrow, I don't have a car and nobody I know can drive me tonight. I've been in contact with the vet three times during the day, and the time I've got scheduled is the first one tomorrow. I feel terrible not being able...

    I think she's blind

    Her eyes have always been clear and very alert, until I saw her this morning. Since it's only one of the eyes, I'm a bit confused. I'll just have to see what the vet'll say. But, as you said, it's not easy to find a vet who knows what he or she is talking about when it comes to guinea pigs. But...

    I think she's blind

    When I came home today, after spending the night someplace else, I found my cavy Coffee looking like this. :guilty: :ashamed: The pictures aren't very good, she's not the posing type. Her left eye's all blurry, having a kind of light greyish/blueish skin over it. If it weren't for the murky...

    Comment by 'cough' in media 'House of Muffins and Coffee'

    No, they can't get to the cord.. It looks a lot closer to the cage than it really is, it's prbably about 20 cm away.. So, no problem. ^^

    lazy piggies

    That just might be true about my piggies too, they're really active during nights. Sometimes they really piss me off, Coffee keeps chewing the grids at the cage and at the same time Muffins is running around in the cage like a fool. I might just try that too, anything to make them happy.:D

    lazy piggies

    Well, I built the cage myself - it measures 120x60 cm on the bottom level, and 40x60 cm on the upper level. I keep an extra eye on their diet to keep them from getting diabetes. In Sweden vets are quite bad at diagnosing pets, so me and my friend make sure we stay updated at it. I'll try to...

    Scandinavia Found Cubes in Germany!

    I'm planning to get a new cage for my two cavies, in the one I have now I've used ELFA grids, but they're expensive. My cage measures 120x60 cm on the lower level and 40x60 cm on the top level, grids for that costed me somewhere above 1100 SEK. What were the shipping costs from the man in...

    lazy piggies

    My two piggies, Muffins and Coffee, are two lazy cavies. The picture below is Muffins in their common hammock, a place they both like to spend most of their time. I'm beginning to get a bit worried about them both, none of them seem to be interested in the floor-time or the other things I try...

    Scandinavia Cubes in Sweden?

    Re: A little suggestion...? I bought ELFA grids for my cage: https://www.guineapigcages.com/photos/showphoto.php?photo=4682&password=&sort=1&cat=506&page=2 It works really well and is very firm. I also used kanalplast, 10 mm thickness, hard to work with and expensive though.

    pigtures of my cavies!

    Thank you! Coffee one is probably mix between teddy and crested, but she's got the typical teddy fur, and curly whiskers. Muffins on the other hand is a genuin teddy, with teddy grandparents on both sides.

    pigtures of my cavies!

    Oh, so do I! lol A couple of years ago, my last teddy tragically passed away. She was a beauty too, a bit more fluffy and lamb-like than the two I've got now.

    pigtures of my cavies!

    Here comes the first pictures of my little piggies XD. :love: The white/grey one's name is Muffins, she's a bit lazy but when she's in the mood she turns the whole cage upside down. :silly: The dark one is called Coffee, she's a little bundle of energy. Absolutely adorable! :cheerful:

    Thank you, pink_cottonball. I appreciate it.

    I'm collecting opinions on what to feed

    Oh my! I've been looking for such a booklet for a time now. The veg/fruit charts on the guinealynx page is probably good, but as a stupid Swedish girl I don't understand half of it. Would you like to email the booklet to me?:) I don't know whether you can get my email from my page (I'm new at...

    Scandinavia Cubes in Sweden?

    Yes, my friend is to order from amazon.com, where you can get them in many different colours as well. Just go to the search field and enter "wire cubes". They deliver to practically every address imaginable (at least that's what their site says). Good luck!

    Scandinavia Help!

    Hi! I don't know whether you already have a C&C-cage or not, but if you need a new cage I suggest you to look for the ELFA-grids at CoopForum. They are located at the shelving department. I bought mine at CoopForum in Burlöv. They work really well, and there are a lot of different sizes. My cage...
