Greetings!

Lily is obnoxious. After two weeks separate from Mu-Xi, they had their meet and greets on the floor in an open pen. Within ten minutes there was lunging at each other. I did this for two days. Then I did the buddy bath. Both pigs got bathed together in the bathtub and then put into […]

Mu-Xi mu

She’s being a butt. I weighed her now at 974 and offered her tube food outside of the cage, and she refused, assuming trex vision and that I wouldn’t really see her if she wasn’t moving. I offered the tube food to Chai over in the pen by a heaping spoonful and she accepted. I […]

two days later

And my Mu Mux is at 960 grams. She is steadily going downhill. Her health seems otherwise fine but I need to start feeding her supplement tube food and just keep weighing. She might need a vet visit shortly. It’s likely Chai’s fault. At seven, we’ve learned she’s been using vampire tactics on all the […]

It’s been four day

and Mu-Xi is now at 973 grams. Given that I’ve seen guinea pigs fluctuate as much at 20 grams in a day, depending on when they were being weighed, I’m still not at a huge call for alarm. I’ll keep weighing Mu every few days and see if she’s consistent at this new weight.

Another change in dynamic

I’m suddenly a hands-off piggie parent. My guinea pig,Honey, has been on medication since September and just recently passed on towards the Rainbow Bridge. That leaves two: Chai and Mu-Xi. Chai has never been a problematic guinea pig but she used to be called The Militia, always being able to evade me when I tried […]

guinea pigs have lice!

And here I was, bored to myself and thinking, “Maybe, I do need a puppy.” Puppy ain’t happening. I still have my hands full. I thought I saw a cootie on Mu-Xi, but I wasn’t sure. So, then I checked Honey over and found a few. The lice infestation is mild. I didn’t see any […]

Comings and Goings

Three weeks ago, Honey joined the herd, bringing the number up to 4. Her weight bounces back and forth by several grams, and today she weighs in at 887 so I’m supplementing hand feedings again. Her mammary tumor seems to be stable at the same size, and she gets along well with the other guinea […]
