@jonsie@Mi-Amigo I'll have to find a delicate balance between sharing plenty of photos without spamming you guys, feel free to tell me off if it's too much or not enough joy


Oh no, you wont be spamming @EmilieT 

We have had cats, dogs and even rats. No guinea pigs as yet....

Re: Welcoming new fluffy friends ๐Ÿน

@EmilieT 2 males will fight, and one of each will breed, rapidly.
I used to breed and show them so I do know what I'm talking about so unless you want to breed them, It's 2 females or nothing.

@EmilieT 

no matter how many photos of your guinea pigs you post, you won`t be spamming - so no telling you off or sending you to the Naughty Step wink

Thanks guys!

 

@Mi-Amigo I've got a few names in mind, and it will mostly depend on what they look like since guinea pigs come in all sort of sizes and colours Smiley Happy That being said, if you have any names that you would give to a pair of guinea pigs, more inspiration and ideas can't hurt so do let me know what you'd pick Smiley Wink

 

@MI5 Did you have troubles with male guinea pigs? From what I've read males get tamer and not as obsessed with marking their territory once they're over a year old, but when they're younger they're more tricky to take care of ... We definitely want either two females or two males, but  think it'll be down to which ones we fall in love with Smiley Wink

 

@Cleoriff This rescue makes sure they find pairs that get along really well and are adopted together, which is lovely heart


 

Marjo is a pretty good name @EmilieT . cool

My first 2 were called Hugo and Victoria as a nod to the famous French writer.
