I have a guinea pig, and I simply adore him!! It is funny to see him eat an orange, because then his chin gets all orange. I love my guinea pig!! :-)

I have six guinea pigs. I think they are the best first pets. I will tell you about my guinea pigs. I have had baby guinea pigs and their names are Boger, Batman and Teady-Bear. I have had more babies too, there names are Carlie, Chubby, Batgirl, Daisy and Little-Bob, but Little-Bob died when he was four days old because everyone was stepping on him, he was the smallest. Katie is the mom for first time babies and the dad is Sr.Bob. Teady-Bear is the mom of two and the dad is Batman. I love my guinea pigs!! Tori

I have two guinea pigs and one of them died today. I am so sad, I want to find out why Spiky has died...Now leaving Bobo alone....They were one pair and they loved each other so much....I wonder whether I should get a new partner for Bobo. She is so sad now....She queeks loudly when her friend is in danger...Until now she is still looking for her friend....Spiky was mischevious while Bobo is quiet......They loved each other very much...I am so sad on the lost of spiky...

I love guinea pigs a lot,particularly the long-haired types. I had an orange-and-white Peruvian female named Pebbles, whom I entered in a charity pet show for the local SPCA. She won "Best in Show"! I was very proud of her. I currently own (or am owned by!) two GP's I've adopted from a guinea pig rescue group. I am very pleased with my pets and the organization I adopted them from. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend adoption for anyone who wants to acquire a pet of ANY kind. There are far to many perfectly good pet lives going to waste out there due to pet over- breeding. I cannot over stress the point.
Adopt,adopt,ADOPT!!!

I tend to agree with cavycages, as my girls have a 3x5 foot cage and are extremely happy critters. NO cavy should be in a 2 foot square cage and have no companion...

Hi there,
Here are some of the of my thoughts on guinea pig care:
One guinea pig needs at least 7 square feet of space in order to run around and exercise properly.
Sawdust, straw, and cat litter are not acceptable bedding choices.
Carrots should be given in moderation, about the equilvalent of one baby carrot per week per cavy, because they can cause bladder stones.
Treats should not be given, especially not dog biscuits. The only treat a cavy needs are fresh veggies.
Males get along quite well together and rarely fight. They live together almost 100% of the time peacefully.
Guinea pigs should never be kept with animals of a different species.
Babies should never be hand nursed with milk powder. This can and will kill them. They should be fed a special cavy product made by Oxbow that provides the nourishment they need similar to their mother's milk.
Vitamins added to water are useless, as the vitamin deteriorates immediately when diluted in liquid and/or exposed to light.

Hi my name is Jessica! My family bred guinea pigs. We bred them so much that we eventually had 55! We had more babies than mothers. We now only have three guinea pigs and are not allowed to breed them anymore. The reason we have three is because one mother that I'd had for a long time I caught in the wild, a guinea pig I found in a pet shop I begged my dad to get, and my sister begged my dad to get her one. So he did!

The mother, who I caught is Autumn 2, the guinea pig I saw in a pet shop I named Sweetheart(she's my favourite), and my sister's guinea pig is named Autumn Blue(to match and rhyme with Autumn 2). We have enjoyed breeding guinea pigs and love the babies that we saw.

P.S. I love your little baby Dawn! Mine was white!
