Can Guinea Pigs Eat Thyme?

The humans decided that since Thanksgiving is tomorrow, they would feed us some more Thanksgiving-inspired herbs. You can feed us thyme 1-2 times per week. You can feed us the stems as well as the leaves.

Today we tried thyme, and frankly, I don't know what to think. It's green, but tastes much stronger than other green foods we've tried before.

The heck is this?!
I tried some and ate it enthusiastically but then wandered away. Then I saw Buffy and Broccoli were still eating it, so you know I had to go and claim some more. But then Buffy got bored and wandered off, too.

We're lukewarm on this food. We give it 3/5 stars. It's nice to eat a nibble or two, but after that we become disinterested.


  1. I tried to leave a comment and I think the computer ate it -- sigh. Muffin has never tried thyme, not sure she would like it much, she is quite particular :-) She (and her 9 year old human) are running a carrot decorating contest and I am supposed to let guinea pigs and their humans know about it -- I'm out meeting guinea pigs via their blogs tonight :-) If Lola, Buffy and Broccoli might like to enter the info is at But either way Muffin sends wheeks and piggy hugs and we will be back to visit soon!

    1. Thanks so much for sharing- we will be entering for sure!
