    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...

    Motita ≪33.

    That's how I named him. He's the first guinea pig I've ever had. At first he was frantic!. So really scared. He still tries to run away when I try to handle him. But he's slowly getting used to it. I don't keep him in a normal cage. I'm making him a three room house. When I...

    My First Guinea Pig Pretzel...

    Our neighbor got a guinea pig for her kids and kept it outside. However, she wanted to get rid of it, so she asked us if we wanted it. Hesitantly, my mother took him and the small cage he came in. At first, he was really nervous, and it took a long time for him to get used to us...

    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 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.

    Used to keep them as pets

    when I was younger. Amazing variety of colours and breeds. You could turn the lights off at night. And it would go quiet. Come back later and put the lights on and they'd be squeezing! Like they'd really missed you!!

    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...

    this is my little man Cash (like bad boy Johnny

    Cash). he's a grumpy little thing, but when he's feeling sweet, he loves cuddles and pets and tickles. carrots and strawberries are his favorite things and he popcorns like crazy every time he hears a bag crinkle thinking he's getting food. he's a sweet baby.
