Cavy Savvy 400th Post Celebration and Giveaway!

We did it! We reached our 400th post! Who knew back when we started this blog in 2011 that we'd still be reviewing foods and products and giving out advice in 2015? For our 200th and 300th posts, we ate the number out of foods. We now consider this a Cavy Savvy tradition, and aren't about to break tradition now. (Especially when the tradition involved eating delicious food!)

Here's the number 400 made out of carrots, pears, and lettuce
Well, it was the number 400. Now I guess we'll have to post 100 more times before we can eat numbers again.
To celebrate this achievement, we're going to be doing another giveaway! In past giveaways, the prize is typically something for guinea pigs to enjoy, such as a snuggle hut, a guinea pig costume, treats, and so on. This time, we're going to do something different and give away a prize for the humans. After all, they deserve one for buying our food, cleaning our cages, and all the other things they do for us.

This time, the prize is a guinea pig necklace from The Magic Zoo:

I'd wear that if I were a human! But since I'm a guinea pig, I'd probably just chew up the string. Probably best to keep it away if you value it.
Here are the giveaway rules:

Good luck!


  1. Oh, I couldn't possibly pick a favorite post! But Jasper and Oliver really appreciate the product reviews, since we refer to them before buying and new piggie presents. And I would love to win that necklace!

  2. I love your guinea pigs! My favorite post probably is "Guinea Pigs In Hats." Lola, Buffy, and Broccoli are all adorable. I also think the necklace is cute, but I'm not entering the contest. Can you maybe come check out my website,, and at least comment on it? I feel like I'm making it for nothing because no one ever views it. My guinea pigs can be seen as the very first real post.

  3. My favorite posts are the reviews! I love knowing what's worth my money and what isn't! I also think the posts talking about health are really helpful too. I have learned so much about piggies from your blog! P.s. Your piggies are so adorable!

  4. My favorite post is guinea pigs in hats. I love your site and your pigs. :)

  5. My favorite post is guinea pigs in hats. I love your site and your piggies. :)

  6. My favorite post (though it is a hard to choose as a first time piggie owner) was probably one I just referenced, Guinea pigs eating Bananas, only because yours snatched the entire banana out of your hand. I swear, mine could beat me in tug of war if the rope were made of something edible.

  7. Our favorite post was definitely "Can Guinea Pigs Sense Emotions?"!! It's so cool to know that a guinea pig is a common ancestor of a human!!
