You're probably wondering what finally did the trick to turn guinea pig combatants into friendly cage-mates. There honestly was not a single defining moment; they never did give us a bath together like they threatened to. It was the result of gradual exposure. The humans kept our cages together so we could get used to each other's scents, and we had floor time adventures together that got less hostile over time.
Lola has stopped waking the humans up in the middle of the night with her wheeking ever since the cages were combined, so Broccoli and I think she's pretty satisfied with the new living arrangements!
