    Post a Picture of your Guinea Pig!

    We adopted a new boy yesterday. He is two years old and we have named him Charlie. He's quite timid but very calm and sweet as pie. :love:

    New here and new Guinea pig owner

    Thanks for the advice guys. I have gotten them out a couple times now. They aren't happy when I get them but calm down in my arms. Teddy is better then Buddha about it. Hopefully with time they will get more comfortable with being picked up but if not then I will just refrain from doing it too...

    Pigloo covers!

    These are so cute but you make a good point MrWistlers. The opening to the pigloos are pretty big though so not sure if it would be a problem. Perhaps in the summer.

    I got them on Saturday so it's been 3 days today. It's funny that you mention that your girls get distracted with the veggies. I found that if I give my boys a piece of carrot I can pet them like there's no tomorrow. Thanks for the advice about chasing for no more than 30 seconds. That's good...

    Thank you everyone for the nice welcome. Stephanie: love the names of your two girls. Again, I apologize for the upside down picture. I don't know why that happened as the photo was fine in its original form. Any tips on how to pick them up would be welcome. I tried yesterday and they wanted...
