My name is Lisa, and I've been a guinea pig lover for 38 years. Since the age of 3 I've raised Buffy & Joddie, BeeBee & Junior, Fluffy & Snowball, Woodstock (Woody) & Jerry, Brownie & CoCo, Lucy & Ethel as pets. We have 18 month old Gizmo and Spike as the current pigs in our family. Dispite their names, Gizmo & Spike are both females (we have our 10 year old son to thank for that). They are both cute and lovable critters and like to play and cuddle. Gizmo is a multi-colored American who is shy and curious. Spike is a black American-Silkie mix who is outgoing and nosy. Gizmo likes one on one attention, soft music and gentle cuddles. Spike likes to be the center of attention, watching tv and talking with her humans. Gizmo rarely complains and goes with the flow. Spike will loudly speak her mind if someone enters their room without saying hello. We also have a very intelligent tiger striped cat named Tigger (very protective of the pigs), and a chow mix named Tress who loves everybody (even the mailman). Considering they are the smallest members of our family (me-mom, CJ-10 year old, Dave-dad, Vivianne-grandma, Malessie-great grandma, Tigger, Tress and Gizmo & Spike), they are by far the most opinionated and vocal. They scream at the cat until he finds a human to give them whatever it is that they demand, and they just confuse the dog (she's not quite sure what to make of them at all). We love all of the people and animals in our family and wouldn't trade any of them for anything in the world.

Our Family has two 1year old guinea pigs. We were wondering if it would be advisable to add a baby guinea in with them.

I feel so much better after reading Eleanor's comment from April '07. My sweet Wilbur passed away last night. I was concerned that my friend's son had perhaps fed him something toxic while he was here 2 days ago. And even though Eleanor's comment that cavies will steer clear of poisonous foods is not definitive, I take comfort from it. Though I will miss my sweet, funny little piggyboy for quite some time.

I have the most loving and caring guinea pig ever, shes about 3 now. She's a black and white long haired, well her hair isn't even that long, lol. I bought her with another female who sadely had to be put to sleep after my dog got hold of them both. That was really upsetting for me as I'm an animal lover. After about 2 years of my guinea pig being on her own, I decided to get her a friend. So I got her a baby short hair, a black and caramel baby guinea pig. I love them both very much and my older guinea pig has motherd the baby, I'm so proud of her.

Hi there, I have a peruvian guinea pig, his name is tootee. I'm very much fond of him and he's sitting on my lap tight now. My other guinea pig died last year. He was an abyssinian guinea pig and his name was poopy. I'm hoping to learn more about guinea pigs from you guys.. thanks!

Great site but here are a few tips and notes, for instance a Guinea Pig is not nocturnal and they take naps in the day because they are animals. Remember to never feed a Guinea Pig iceburg lettuce either, you can use Romaine Lettuce as the perfect substitute.

P.S. My Guinea Pig CHILLI<3 and Big Foot (My Brothers Guinea Pig) SAY HI

I just got a guinea pig 3 days ago and I just love him. He will just lay on my chest and sleep or he will only eat if he is near me. I thought he was a girl until I took him to the vets and had to change his name from Cloe to Thunderbolt. He's on my chest right now.
