    Wee Toby

      When I first bought my guinea pig I didn't know you had to keep them in pairs/groups. Mine is three year old male called Toby :) I fell in love with him once I saw him at the pet shop and most people said two boars may fight and I didn't want to get a female because of...

    Guinea Pigs Have Taken Over My Life...

    My husband and I decided to get my daughter a pet when she was 6. After much research we decided on a guinea pig. We chose a tri-colored little baby girl guinea pig from Petsmart and brought her home. This was in 2004. We named her Maggie. I fell in love with her, totally. Maggie...

    Little Delight

    Actually, Chester isn't mine, he technically belongs to my girlfriend. He's a coronet about 18 months old, and he's probably more fluff than guinea pig :) He's also kind of overweight thanks to a small alfalfa addiction. When we let him out he sniffs about the apartment with his...

    I bought baby Nugget in May.

    In just this short time she's become my favorite pet I've ever had. She loves to snuggle and eat kale out of my hand. And last week, she added more fluffy babies to my pen. Now I have a proud mama and three squawky babies!

    My Baby Cocanee :)

    When I first met "Coco" I didnt think that she was ever going to be anything special. She was my friends little sisters guinea pig. I held it, it sniffed around and squeaked, I put her back and promptly forgot the whole thing. Within a week, Coco had to be...

    My Friend, Blue

    I wanted a pet a few years ago. Initially, I wanted a rat, and that animal still calls out to me a little, but I have grown to absolutely adore my snow-white guinea pig, Baby Blue Eyes (Blue for short). Most of the time I find her incredibly annoying, because she is squealing...

    So my guinea is basically my boyfriend.

    I talk to him about everything. We cuddle. I feed him. He loves me and I love him. He seriously makes me so happy. I'd be lost without my little squeaker box. He's my baby.
