I already have April’s first update planned

BECAUSE I HATE BEING RIGHT Lily does need a full spay. Vet confirmed. We went over options, had 1 I hadn’t had recommended to me in the past: THEY HAVE AN IMPLANT We discussed Lupron, which is still $100 per injection and not a hundred percent effective. An implant, which is more long-lasting than the […]

We’re going to the vet again

Lily’s appointment is on Wednesday in Virginia. She’s my 4(ish) year old guinea pig that gave birth to a bunch of pups a few years ago. She’s never been to the doctor since she moved in with me, and I found out this weekend that she’d chewed the hair off her lower side. This is […]

TOM! – New guinea pig improvements planned

Recently, I downsized the guinea pig C&C pen down from 2×6 grids to 2×4 grids. I tacked some liners together, which have been holding up at the laundromat. We even bought a table with telescoping legs to have the pen up a little higher off the ground, and leave extra room for storage underneath. It’s […]

Photo collection and comments from Guinea Pig Pen rebuild

I started off with cheap moving blankets that other users have verified worked for their small animals. I did a test on one in our top loader machine, and it came out noticeably thinner and left lint all over the machine, but wasn’t destroyed. I ended up taking the other five blankets to the laundromat […]

When you lose another member of your guinea pig herd

You don’t get enough time. It’s dumb, because it’s unrealistic. I had an 8 year old guinea pig start to get poorly on me, and I just kept telling myself I could get another year out of her. That wasn’t fair to her, because we’d had a long full life together. She gave me two […]

I’ll post more later. My fuzzy red potato died #guineapigs

My little red pork dumpling, Potsticker, went to the vet early today, but didn't survive after a few hours in treatment. She would have had her third birthday next month. Sticky Girl was born in my home, and leaves behind her mother, sister, and a few broken hearts. #guineapigsof_ig #guineapigs #guineapigsofinstagram #rainbowbridge A post shared […]

Guinea pigs are amazing little fuzz butts

It took an extra week to get to cleaning the pig pen after I caught a cold. They do try to take care of it themselves, if they have everything else they need. When the guinea pigs are soiling different parts of their pen, they start dragging hay around the pig pen and lay it […]
