    My Short Guinea-piggie Story !

    I never heard tell of a guinea pig until I turned 11. When my parents said I could have a pet for my birthday, I decided on getting a guinea pig, though I had no idea what they were like. We went to a city two hours away to get the guinea pig, which I named Ginger due to her...

    Cute Little Fluffernutters, Aren't They?

    Mine are Lily Belle, the oldest, and Butter Biscuit, the youngest. (Biscuit actually looks almost exactly like the one in the group picture.) They're just like sisters though, constantly bickering and fighting over stuff. Totally adorable. ♥

    My Guinea Pig Is Dying

    I'm not quite sure what to feel... Sad, yes, but I've never really felt sad about death, just numb. She's been getting skinnier for the past six months. Thats the only way you can tell a guinea pig is getting sick; if they showed any other signs, they'd make a better target for...

    What's Not To Love?

    My piggy's name is Bella. And let me tell you she's a little diva. When she knows I'm awake she'll start squeeling wanting her hay.  If she doesn't get it right away she'll knock over her igloo and run around the cage.  And she's crazy about lettuce.  I can have her in my lap...

    My Pigs

    I have two and they are amusing little things. I wish mine enjoyed being handled more. I've heard some pigs fall asleep on people. Mine don't mind being picked up to much but soon get jumpy and want to go back home. They're also cabbage addicts.
