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 […]

My guinea pig came back from the vet

Lily Momma is back home, and when she heard her guinea pig, she came right out of her hidey sack and started to eat hay. I may not have to hand feed her. I gave her the meds this evening, but forgot to weigh her. I will get right on that in the morning. It’s […]

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 […]

this little guinea pig family has a lot of character

Yes. So ever since Lily moved in and popped out her daughters, Mu-Xi Mu has come out of her shell just a little. She’s turning 6 next year so I don’t expect too much out of her. But Lily’s kids are crazy. Potsticker is very food motivated and gathers mom and her sisters to follow […]

It’s October. We can’t have the windows open.

Tommy Gargoyle has been on Prozac for about two months now for his spraying issues and anxiety. He’s doing well and I haven’t seen him mark anything personally in quite some time. However, our youngest male cat Stewart is a piss machine. If we have the windows open he’s spraying like five times a day […]

oh gosh they are so cute

Most of the time the guinea pigs think I’m either going to feed them or eat them myself. I cleaned the pen today and left them in the little swimming pool while I did it. After a while, it’s so funny, Lily and her daughter Murphy start to follow me around the room and stand […]
