Me and my husband adopted our first AB piggy, from my aunt, about a month ago. He named him Choyi. Choyi is the sweetest pet I could've asked for. He's increadibly talkative.. he gives kisses when he's really happy, he'll beg to be picked up n then starts purring. He is soo affectionate and active. He loves to roam around our living room and jump on my niece and I could watch him forever. And it's so sweet sometimes he likes to be hand fed, especially carrots and timothy hay. i just love him.

    Haha, I have an American (Walnut) and an Abyssinian (Peanut), and I love both. Although, Walnut is actually quite shy, and Peanut is the more friendly of the two. :)

      That was the same with my Guinea Pigs I had a American {Sammie} and an Abyssinian {Spike}. Sammie is shy and Spike is the nice and calm.

    I had a guinea pig named Sammie and she died. She started acting weird and stop eating and drinking I know she was sick but does anyone know what it was? Cause my Abyssinian Guinea Pig Spike did the same thing I just want to know? So if I get another one what to do and what it is so I can take her/him to the vet and tell her!

      I am sorry. Guinea pigs usually live 8 - 10 years and it doesn't sound like yours were that old. Guinea Pigs are naturally prey animals and will do whatever to hide the fact they are ill. However, they do stop eating and drinking as the first symptom and it is usually a bacterial infection adn you need to get the little guy to the vet as soon as possible. They do everything they can to hide the fact they are ill. You take it to a vet and tell the ve what is happening and they can do a gram stain and tell what the bacteria is or maybe just treat it with a general purpose antibiotic. I am sorry.

    I have two guinea pigs Reeses and Pumpkin and they are the most adorable pets ever! Reees is a Abyssinian and definitely likes to get herself into things while Pumpkin is a Peruvian and much more laid back and likes to be brushed! Overall they are my girls and I could not ask for better pets!

      Make Sure He/She Would Be Happy And Healthy. If They Stop Eating Drinking Or Pooping He Is Sick. To Make Sure That He/She Is Not Sick If Nothing Of That Symptoms Is Involved See How Active He/She Is. If He/She Is Active That Means That It's Healthy. If A Healthy Life They Should Live To 6 Years

    Any advice for a newbie thinking of getting a guinea pig for the family? My son is 9 years old. Found an Abyssinian guinea pig that needs a new home. Any advice on the different breeds before we decide?

      One, supervise your son, kids get tired of the smaller animals very quickly and it may become your responsibility. Also ask the person you are getting the pig from for any vet records. Also an American short haired guinea pig may be a better choice for a younger child. Aby's do not typically like to be stroked as their hair grows in spirals my guess is that it is very irritating to them. And last you should get two find another of the same gender as they are very social animals and are known to die of loneliness.
      Good luck with your future piggy.

      Well A Few Months Ago I Got An Aby And A Diffrent kind of Guinea Pig and they got along pretty well. You might want to observe the Guinea Pig. The more active he/her is is the healthier. It is they are not that big of a responsobuilty all you need to do is make sure he has water in his water bottle or bowl and feed them everyday clean the bowls or bottle everyday and 1 time a week change the chips and take them out once in a while. If he's sick don't take him out. But One thing make sure your vet knows about Guinea Pig Health.

    Guinea pigs make the best pets of the rodant family. They are very smart. My daughters two female are two years old they seem to love their life. We feed them lots of vegies and fruit they love romane lettuce,spinach,carrots,cucumbers,watermellon no seeds,any fruits and veggies with awater crunchy bite. They love people their care givers. They communicate with a high tone squeal kinda like a pig. To address to their matters that they love you. Our guineas live in a 55 gallion fish tank we use cedar chips for bedding it keeps the fleas away. Dalala and Natasia are adorable little pets.

    I don't have a white crested, just a regular brindle crested piggie and I love her to death. She's so cute and she squeaks and purs when I pet her. I could not love a child as much as I love my piggie

      Many animals like chocolate but for most animals it is not good for them. I am not sure about Guinea Pigs but I sincerely doubt it would be good for him. It is toxic for birds and also dangerous for dogs and cats. I wouldn't let your little fella have chocolate. Sorry but in answer to your question - yes many animals love chocolate - sweets actually.

      You have to try to get it back in manually if it doesnt by itself. Try pushing the bottom part of his stomach, just right on top of his privates.
