Single guinea pig

It’s been a week, and Murphy is working out alright. She’s talking to us all day long with sassy attitude. Hey Lady! Oh!!! That Guy! You Too! And she’s always asking us for treats. This evening I had just left the dining room area and sat on the couch. I looked over and she was […]

I was very wrong – My sick guinea pig

When you feel that you are well established, there would be no more surprises. I must still be a layman because my guinea pig has a severe case of bloat. She’s not in G.I. Stasis, and yet her bloat is so severe that they took 3 views on the x-rays just to make sure her […]

Stay calm – It’s just a sick guinea pig

Over the last week, I have been having trouble getting Lily to take her usual treats from me. She kept asking for snacks, and then telling me it wasn’t a snack, and walking off. Alright. Maybe it’s a spell with her sniffer? Turns out, not entirely, and when I was cleaning the pig pen on […]

Preconceptions out the window – Raising pets

There are arguments for everyone’s household on parenting and raising your fids or kids. I have been doing both for 10 years now, and my opinions have evolved so much that I would probably shout a few choice things at myself even back in the first five years over the way I was doing things. […]

Lily Momma has so much energy after healing from her full spay

This guinea pig is running my life! Several times a day, she’ll see me walk through the dining room, and she just starts accosting me. Then whatever she’s dreaming about for snacks sounds great to her daughter, Murphy, and she joins in as well. Lily has been hopping in and out of the hay box […]

How have you been? (the guinea pig, and other things)

Lily is about ready to go back to the main pig pen. She’s talking to me a lot more, and we’re discontinuing some of her medications this week. Yesterday was 1 week since her spay surgery and tomorrow will be 1 week since she came home. Hopefully I can clean the pig pen this evening […]

Lily Momma’s Progress

She’s eating very small meals. I’m not hand feeding her much, but I am making sure she at least takes in an extra meal’s worth. I started giving her baby gasX, and I found out from the hand feeding that she’ll take her meds more easily if you place her in an elevated position. She […]
