Cavy Savvy is a guinea pig blog written from the perspective of three guinea pigs: Lola, Buffy and Broccoli. We review guinea pig products, pet food, toys, bedding, cages and more to provide humans with all they need to know about guinea pigs!
Your Guinea pigs are soo cute
Thanks, Alyssa. :-)
Do guinea pigs do better in pairs or more? Because I have a solitary male guinea pig and I really want to get another one, but I heard that if i buy another male guinea pig it would be difficult because they would fight.
Guinea pig males can live in pairs. Just contact a shelter and ask them to help tou find a friend for your guinea pig. Neuter them if you can I heard tht makes them less aggresive
Males are actually far more mellow than females. However, in my experience with breeding females don't get impacted.
I have 3 Guinea Pigs. Cpt Nibbles, Buddy, and Rufus. Buddy and Rufus Get along famously. Cpt Nibbles, However gets along with neither. There is a great deal of foot stamping and it has even escalated into actual Fighting between the larger two, Buddy and Cpt Nibbles. Currently, their play cage is arranged so that Cpt Nibbles can get in very close proximity of the others, But cannot actually get at them. They all have plenty of room to "Get Away. from one another if they want to. ( the cage is 9 ft by 6 feet, with Numerous pigloos and toys.) This inability to get along has been going on for about a year. To confuse matters evn more, CPT nibbles, (the one who can't get along with anyone, is the one that is the most affectionate towards people. What could be the cause of this, and how do I fix it , so that they are all happy together?
By the way, Broccoli looks just like Buddy!
If you have pictures of Buddy, we'd love to see them!
Your piggies are adorable!! My piggy, Gizmo loved green beans. Thanks for your advice!
And thank you for reading!
This is Kitty mom is letting me use her phone. Per your review she gave Nancy and I a half a green bean each. I LOVED it, Nancy is a picky pig and didn't really like it, she took a little nibble and turned up her nose. I'm thinking YAY I get Nancy's half to, but mom took it away. She said something about we had already had a lot of vegies today and it was new!?! UGH how do you deal with these over protective owners? Sincerely,Kitty
