Sometimes they make that noise when they are scared..mine do anyway, have you ever made a loud noise and your guinea pig stood still and made that noise? She could also be trying to talk to the pig above her because she could hear it..

ya i know how you feel, i got the same problem..maybe if you put two cages side by side, and put some vanilla extract on both there noses, they would start getting used to each other..then some controlled introductions during floor time so they aren't invading each others territory?

if it was when they heard a bag rustle my guess is because she thought it was food. my boys go nuts whenever they hear any kind of bag nosie because they know its the same sound the grocery bags make, and the bags that hold their veggies!

a buddy bath would do the same as vanilla extract. I had heard of putting a couple of drops of purfume on your hands then running your hands on the pigs but had not heard of putting vanilla extract on them. Guess we all learn something new every day.

The vanilla extract is to put above each pigs nose so they smell the same thing..that way its not like they smell a different pig invading their territory. It works great, for dogs, horses....
