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!
