My Guinea pig Oscar was brought home a few days ago. He is getting used to his surroundings every day. However, my mom works at home. She puts these parts together and puts them in a box. They are very loud when they hit the box. After a while as they pile up though, they are quiet. When they're loud, he makes this noise that sounds like an owl. Like a purr, but really low sounding. Every time it hits the box he makes that sound. What is bad is that my mom vacuums everyday. The vacuum is old.. and loud. Oscar's cage permanently stays in this hall. I'm afraid he will be terrified of it. I can't pick him up yet. I tried, nut he squirms and runs back in his cage. Even if I talk to him and pet him. Is there a way to calm him? Or just have him get used to the noises. Thanks!
