Hi. I'm posting a new thread here. This is my first visit to Cavy Cages and I'm not still sure what are all the things people can do here, so, I think it would be nice if there's any more people from Mexico or latin countries (spanish spoken countries) so we can share expereciences and opinions.

Welcome here! I'm not from Mexico but my husband comes from Mexico. He lived in a village close to Cuauhtemoc. He came to Canada when he was nine years old. I hope you can learn a lot here. How many guinea pigs do you have?

We prefer if you don't write in spanish. When you write in other languages on the board most people can't understand what you are saying and participate and this is a public forum. You are welcome to PM each other in spanish if you want.

I lived in Mexico for a while. In Hermosillo, Sonora to be exact.

Hi I was born in the U.S. but my mom was born in Michuacan, Mexico and my dad was born in Guerrero, Mexico.I still visit my grandparents and stuff though. I didnt actually know that they sold guinea pigs in Mexico. When I would ask most people didn't know what I was talking about.

Hi, I am also from Mexico,to be specific, I live in Tijuana,
I have a guinea pig that I adopted from my brother.
You will be happy in this forum there is a lot of help from experienced owners.
And as VooDooJoint said, we must write in english, so other non spanish speaking members can undestand.

Hello,

I am from the states, but haved lived in Mexico for 8 years, just south of Guadalajara, in Chapala.

We have two new little cujo's that are so much fun. Does anyone know what Timothy Hey is called in Spanish? And do you know if I can get it at a feed store. I have tried many places with no luck. Right now the little guys are getting lots of veggies and a cavi pellet mix, but read that they need the Timothy hey to keep their teeth short?????

I found a great used cage at the animal shelter, but still tryng to work out all of the details with these cute guys. So happy to be on this site.

To DosLunas:
Timothy Grass, goes by the latin name of Phleum pratense, wich is the scientific name for it.
I browse the net and found out that in some parts of Mexico is called "Cola de Zorro", which means fox tail in english.
I hope this is useful

WOW! What a surprise to find so many cavy lovers in Mexico!!! I am from Tuxpan, Ver. but I live in Mexico city. My guinea pigs name is Lolo (we used to call him Lola because when we got her they told us he was a she, but we now discovered it is a HE. I also had trouble finding stuff for my guinea pig but there is veterinarian in Mexico city for cavies, ferrets and other exotic animals and he sells TImothy hay and good pellets for cavies and toys. and probably he could send the hay or other stuff by courier to other places in Mexico. If any of you need the phone or mail just ask and I'll mail it to you.
