I tried searching the forum but didn't find anything of relevance to this... Yesterday, I noticed Bridget peeing in the corner of her cage, and immediately after she was done, she gave her butt a quick wipe across the fleece. I saw her do it this morning, too, in the carefresh of her kitchen area. Was just wondering if it's normal, because she's the only guinea pig I have, so I'm still learning what's "normal" gp behavior. I've never noticed it before, but then again, it could be that I've just not caught her in the act before this. She's pregnant also... Don't know if that could have anything to do with it?
 
Both of my boars do this as well. I don't think it's abnormal.
 
I've heard of boars doing it as a kind of scent marking...maybe your female is just dominant and doing it too...?
 
Okay, thank you. Never thought about that. I know it was a weird question, but you never know something until you ask! :) LOL.
