Do you love/have/want piggies? Then whee have a site that might be useful to you! One of our hoomans favourite online hangouts The Guinea Pig Forum!
The background should be green but wordpress has decided they don’t like green today!
If you love piggies they have the Your Stories and Photos Section Where you can post about your own piggies or follow other piggies antics. (You wouldn’t believe some of the things whee have read on there!)
If you have piggies then the Guinea Pig Care Discussion Section is an absolute godsend in times of need. The Health and Illness Section has great resource ‘sticky’ pages and a wealth of members knowledge to advise you. (To quote our most recent time, was when Basil hurt his claw it was previous advice on there that helped us) The Behaviour Section really helps you understand the needs of your piggies and the stickies there include how to introduce piggies and read signs of dominance. It was where Mummy learnt all she knows about introducing us and whee have turned out alright! (ish!)
If you want piggies then you can learn everything you need to know beforehand and ask questions which piggy owners, including our hooman, will answer. The General Chat and Other Pet sections mean piggies aren’t the only focus and you can introduce all your other pets!
They also do great fundraising events for guinea pig rescues including the newly started monthly photo contest and one of the highlights of our hoomans year, Secret Santa for rescue piggies. A great idea that has been done there for a few years now. You sign up and then are sent the details of a piggy that is stuck in a rescue of Pigmass. You then put together a bundle of gifts which can be toys, treats, or anything else you might want to give to the piggy to make their Pigmass special. Whee are definitely doing it again, though somefurry needs two talk Buddy out of wanting to send pigtures of himself to the ladypigs! It took a lot to stop him last year!
So why not sign up, introduce yourself whether you are a bit interested and just starting out or have years of knowledge, whee know you would enjoy being part of such a great community. Whee hope to see you there! Our username is *Nibbles&Nugget* named after Mummy’s first two piggies!
Have a great Thursday
Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil
