I have a very smart guinea pig named Snickers. She was born on nov. 7 and is a great buddy to me. She talks to me in her own special way and I really love it. One of her tricks is a hand stand . Snickers only does this when i give her a fav treat. I love cavies!

we recently purchased a what we thought a male guinea pig. well any way it turned out to be a pregnant female. she is about 5months old, so it is ok. the pet shop man was mistaken by putting what he thought 2 brothers together, but like i said 1 of them was a female. the male got re-homed soon after went into the petshop and we chose to take home the female. we already have a magpie, 1 pigeon, 1 chinchilla, 2 gerbils, 1 mouse, alot of fish, 3 kittens, 1 puppy, and 1 adult dog. as you can tell my mum is dr doolittle 2, so were really looking forward to having a couple more cute babies around the house. we would obviously keep them and it doesn't matter the size of the litter, we just hope every thing goes well.
thanks for taking your time for reading this

I bought a guinea pig, that turned out to be pregnant. About 4 months later, she had 4 baby guinea pigs while I was at school. I came home, looked in her cage to check up on her... [I had noticed she was getting fat, so I took her to the 'vet'] and to my surprise, there they were. With all of their fur, eyes open, running around, playing with mum. It was the most amazing thing ever! I got to watch them grow, and I kept a baby, too. She's pretty rad! Guinea pigs are the best!<3

What a great website! So I just want to pay respect to my little girl Agent 99 (2001-2006), an English shorthair and my first Guinea who passed recently... and welcome my son Repeat (yes thats his name...cause I always say For the love of Pete). I went into the pet store and asked some one at the counter where the guinea pigs were and she said she'd take me as soon as she finished ringing up the lady in line. this lady had to return this guinea b/c her older one was picking fights with him. well he went from her arms straight to mine. I had lost 99 three weeks ago and wasnt looking to purchase another so soon...but he crawled right up my arm sat on my shoulder and started to purr! I took out my credit card right then. I knew HE choose ME! I love my Pete and his older sister Jingah (a Chihuahua)!

i had a guinea pig called Fluffy, i had her for 6yrs but she died yesterday:( Fuffy was the sweetest thing ever! she was absolutely fearless, when our dog barked all the time at her, fluffy enjoyed it and ran around the cage teasing the dog. fluffy was such a character! she had beautiful rosettes of fur all different colours and she was the softest ever. she was a pooing, sleeping, eating machine! she had an exercise cage and when she was finished it looked like someone had cut all the grass cause it was all gone. after all those days she would sleep like a rock!
yesterday fluffy died from old age in her sleep.
i really miss her!
