Hi Maddie! Wow that's awesome you have guinea pigs. How old are they? If they've been living with you for a very long like over a year and seem attached to you then it may stress them out a lot to be seperated from you. And deep down, if you really think about it, I'm sure you'll be able to trace what's making you stressed (if anything is making you stressed) and see if it really is Thunder and Lightning. Those are great names by the way! :))) You gotta think about what you think is best and your mental health and wellbeing too! Hope this remotely helped :)))

I got 50% and in still new to guinea pigs .I fell in love with them immediately. I am desperate for a little animal that is mine and that I can care for. I even brought a garden snail on from outside because I was so desperate. I named her Shelley and I recently let her free. But my mum won't let me have a guinea pig no matter how much I beg. We rent our house by the way but our landlord said we could have cats so why if a guinea pig!? I love them so much 🥺 any advice?

I already have two guinea pigs, Thunder and Lightning, but I am thinking of getting rid of them. My cat tends to hate them,and they "make me really stressed" according to my mom. I'm questioning if I still want them..

This is my first time thinking about getting one. I know that they love fruits and veggies and they are very energetic. but I have a problem... I can not buy two piggies because its to much to take of, I have to do everything two times, and it will be a lot. I cannot handle the pressure but I will defiantly give my piggy as much attention she needs. I am not getting my piggy yet but I really want her for Christmas.

You should not ever give your guinea pigs vitamin drops in the water it could cause them not to like it and not drink it just give them cucumber lettuce tomato and zucchini.

me and my sister are getting two female guinea pigs in three weeks! they're gonna be a brownish/goldish color and another is a white abyssinian piggie. my sister wants the gold/brown one to be named Angel, while i can't decide if the white one is going to be Lumi (means snow in finnish) or Holly... Help me to decide!!

I have two guineas that are happy and loving.
two girls Mrs. Piggy and Mulan or mooey for short.
they are really healthy so even though they didn't suggest me having guinea pigs i have some and this is not all correct. so if you are staking guinea pigs on this it is not really true.

guinea pigs don't require vitamin drops! just give them lots of veggies and love
P.S. if you want a content guinea pig you should have a buddy for your furry
