We have a White Crested Guinea Pig that is currently 9 weeks old. She is a miniature version of the picture on this site. She is somewhat reserved and not incredibly vocal. She prefers to be in her little cardboard box that is lined with fleece, coming out only to eat usually. She acts very skittery when we try to pick her up but is a sweet, cuddly angel once we are holding her. We also have a male (yes, they are permanently separated and we will be adopting a companion for each of them) that is an Abyssinian, although he doesn't have "show" qualities in his coat. He is sweet and funny and very vocal. We have only had them for 3 weeks and he quickly learned the crinkling sound of the Timmothy Hay bag and the sound of the fridge door when I get their fruits/veggies. He squeals and stands on his hind legs waiting for his treats. When he is especially happy, usually after eating his fruits/veggies you can find him springing around his cage like his little feet have springs on them. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen!! They have HUGE cages that are actually indoor kennels sized for a Labrador. We used Coroplast (courrogated plastic) to make the "pans" in the bottom of the kennels. they have tons of space to run, play and hide. We will be adding ramps, additional stories and play tunnels over time. We're also going to try to affix sandpaper to the ramps for traction and also to help keep their claws naturally trimmed. Guinea Pigs definately DO NOT like slippery surfaces. It is scary to them and they will become very skittery, at least ours do. Our pigs also use the same corner of their cages to urinate and for most of thier pooping, right next to their water bottle. Even though they are in seperate cages, they each use the same exact area of their cage for a bathroom. We will be adding small corner litter boxes to make the corner cleaning easier. We also have a corner scoop, it looks like a cat litter scoop but has a rounded triangle shape to make corner cleaning easier. The pine shavings are a little messy and they get spread to the outer edges of the cage when the pigs are running around. Since they don't burrow in it and only seem to use it in their potty corner we're going to try using just sandpaper on the bottom except in the potty corner so they have traction and we don't have pine shavings on the floor all around the cage. The shavings also get stuck all over the fleece material that they love to snuggle with so much and makes it hard to come close to keeping the fabric clean. Most importantly, dont ever put a Guinea Pig in a cage with a wire bottom (like you might use for a rabbit) because the wire mesh is VERY bad for their tender little feet and they will be prone to sores on their foot pads. Guinea Pigs are absolutely the best pets ever but you must be committed to providing the pellets, Vitamin C tablets, Timmothy hay, fresh fruits/veggies and fresh water that they require on a daily basis. If you aren't willing to do that for 6-10 years as well as keeping their cages clean on at least a weekly basis please consider another pet. While Guinea Pigs don't require regular vet care, be prepared that you may have an occasional illness or emergency that can become costly. Have fun with your piggies, they are incredibly rewarding!!

    Oh, gosh! That sounds so exciting! Do you think that having two dogs will scare the guinea pigs? If you choose to make a cage, then should it be really big, medium, small, or any of the above? That sounds great! I think I will get two guinea pigs!

    I was reading your comment and it sounds like you have a wonderful and cute guinea pig......Anyway I am getting a guinea pig but I have no idea what breed of guinea to choose..I wanted an Abyssinian Guinea Pig, but I have been reading about them and it says that a Abyssinian Guinea Pigs are not friendly and bites a lot. Then I seen your comment and your Guinea Pig sounds like a sweetheart and that Abyssinian Guinea Pigs are perfect for first time owners (me). But now I don't know which is right. Am pretty sure that some Abyssinians are not friendly, but I need to be sure (100%) I thought since you had an Abyssinian Guinea Pig you could help me, Would you help me? And can you also help me answer this.. Which breed of Guinea Pigs are better Abyssinian or White Crested?

    I have a white crested guinea pig and she loves to bite us, but sometimes so nibbles and won't hurt as much , but she acts like everything around her is food .... Even my hair. She loves to poop and always skitters away from us but when she's in our arms, she so cuddly and is like a big fur ball,but she still bites. How can you tell if she is pregnant? She was with a larger male and older and he kinda did something with her and I pulled them away and now he's dead:( but I just don't know if she is pregnant. Please tell me how I can tell if she is pregnant without taking her to the vet......

    Before you purchase a little guinea pig, I would definitely reccomend that your purchase a book on Guinea Pigs - their care, their housing and feeding.  Read the whole book so you know how to care for the little fella.  The book will tell you everything you need from grooming brush (if required) to his safe place (some say cage), toys, food per week and cleaning and vet care (if required).  You can do some homework and find out the cost of a cage, cost of the little furry fella, cost of food and realize you would have to save up not only for the furry fella but also the safe place and toys.  How much time do they require per day in play and in cleaning out their cage.  How much does bedding cost?  So now you would know what all the costs are before you purchase a abyssian and I would add up all the costs and see what the total is.  Then you would know how much time it would take per day to play with and clean out the cage.  You would also know the costs of feeding and bedding that you will have per week.  Then you can decide if you are willing to pay for all the costs and willing to spend the time taking care of it and cleaning up after it for a number of years.  If the answer is yes, you can take all your costs and show your parents and show them the book you read and show them how you are going to be able to pay for it and care for it and then ask them if you can have an absysinian.  I know this sounds like a lot of work but you need to do it anyway because you would want your little guy to be healthy and happy.  You need to know everything about caring for him and the costs associated with purchasing one before you do it.  Hope this helps.  Good luck.
