I had a male guinea pig named simba. He was very healthy and happy, but i got a call from my mom saying that he wouldn't eat. So we took him to the vet only to find out that he had pneumonia. The nurse gave him a medication and we thought he would make it, but he died in my arms an hour later.(2003-2004). One year later we got a female guinea pig and named her Nalla. She is two years old and will be three on october 2, 2007.

Hi i have one guine pig named Nalla. I talked about her a little in my other comment but not alot so... she is two going on three and she is the cutiest thing in the world. She is black white and brown. Her face is black with a little bit of brown next to her right eye. Two of her feet are black and the other two are white. One ear is brown and the other is black. On her belly it is like curella deval, one side is white and the other is black(going vertical). The upper part of her back is black and a small part is brown. Then it fads into white and then the middle of her back is black, finishing with a white behind. I hope she lives for a long time because i am really attached to her. :) I LOVE GUINEA PIGS :)

Hi, my brother and I have a male guinea pig each. they are called thunderpoo and lightening. they are so cute and cuddly and love lots of cuddles and attention. they eat LOADS of fresh fruit and vegatables and we cannot wait until summer when we can build them a big run outside with lots of tunnels and games to keep them amused.

I have two guinea pgis named Elvis and Peanut. I got Elvis first from a pet store, and then adopted Peanut from a friend whose guinea pigs had babies. Make sure to check your guinea pig`s gender before you add another guinea pig to the mix. Pet stores are often wrong in identifiying whether the pig is male or female, so take the pig to the vet.

I just wanted to say that please consider adopting instead of buying from a breeder or pet store. I found Umberto at the Humane Society and his adoption fee was only $5.00. He is an awesome little guy who came from a neglectful home. I think I changed his life when I brought him home and he thanks me for it every day! I am considering adopting another piggie so he has a playmate.

Hi, I am the proud owner of two absolutely amazing guinea pigs, cotton and ebony. They are very easy to handle and very loveable. cotton had a baby the size of a newborn kitten in july of 06, and now we are expecting a couple (hopefully) of new members to our family. EBONY IS PREGNANT. I enjoy my guinea pigs very much.

Parfait is my perfect little piggie. Just like in the other comments, Parfait would squeak for bathroom breaks when he was younger but as an old pig (5yrs Oct. '06) he isn't so picky anymore. Parfait also used to display what we lovingly called "piggie taurets" where when he would get overly excited. he would squeak and jump seemingly without meaning to. If your pig does this don't worry, they just need time for their little nervous systems catch up with the rest of them. Oh! I also have a fun experiment for you to try! If you have both a male & female but they live in separate areas, take the male out of his cage and set him IN FRONT OF the females cage so that he can see her. (no baby accidents this way) If you're lucky and he likes her, he will start to sing and sway his backside to and fro to woo her. Parfait just loves to do this for Bandit, his girlfriend through the bars. It's very adrorable to see!

i have had 5 guinea pigs and every time i get one i know that i need to care for it and make a little more time in my life for them. thats all it takes is some time. I have learned that with almost ANY animal you have to be VERY RESPONSIBLE AND CARING. Just 2 weeks ago i put my guniea pig down because she had skin cancer. Sometimes you just need to do whats best for your special companion.

I have had several guinea pigs. They are always very sweet and loving pets. I did have one very bad experience though. My family was in the process of moving to a new house and we left the guinea pig, Lucky with our friend Leslie. When we came back to pick him up, he had been starving himself for 5 days out of loneliness. We tried to bottle-feed him and nurse him back to health, but it was too late. Lucky died in my father's arms. This just shows how devoted guinea pigs are. If you can set aside the time to care for these animals, they make a very sweet and loyal companion.
