One of my room mates is getting a GP when we move, I wonder if they can get along with rats so they can play out in the living room together. How easy are they to litter train? If they can train fairly well I just might get one as well. I'm between bunny, gp, or MORE FISH!!!!! xD I just love the noises GP make so much, it's so cute.

And guineie pigs are hella cute, see



FYI Pearl those cages look amazing, are they hand made?

I believe Asher's coloration is a variation of the "Agouti" color (wild coloring)? She has a grey body, but has white areas and a small white snip on her nose. Around her eyes the white rings seem to get bigger as she gets older.

eta- actually realized the pics showed her white coloring well, dunno why I didn't realize that.

Of course :) I think any time you get a new pet you should learn as much about them as you can, to give them the best life :)

Whew! Okay, I hope I get all of your questions.

Gpigs are normally social creatures and do best in pairs so they have a buddy. In my case, Asher and Toadie lived in the same cage in the shelter, but for some reason when we returned home, Asher suddenly didn't want to get along with Toadie anymore. To protect her, we just separated the cage into sections and they can still talk to each other, yet have their own space. They both really enjoy this arrangement the best I think.

I would not let the Gpigs play with the rats because rats are predators and Gpigs are really passive. They do not "play" in the regular sense like other animals (wrestling, etc.)

When I kept up with maintaining each cage section I was able to train Toadie to the litter box 90% of the time and Asher 75-80%. But that was in the cage. Gpigs cannot be trained well in my experience out of the cage. They have small bladders and since they are constant foragers, always eating, they poop all the time.

One thing to remember about them is they are more higher maintenance than at first glance. And rabbits are very high maintenance. They do best with a lot of out of the time cage and do better with out-of-the-cage litter box training. It is best if you spay/neuter the rabbit to cut down on peeing, marking out of the box. My friend had an un spayed bunny and she would pee red on the carpet sometimes. :/

Regardless, Gpigs and Bunnies are great pets if you have the time to devote to them! Gpigs can be very personable and smart. My girls both know who my BF and I are, they try to run away from the vet straight to me when they are being checked out. And I vacuum the fleece in their cage to keep it neat sometimes and they are so used to the hose, they will just walk around close to it as if it is normal. When I give them baths they just stay still and I can manipulate their bodies and they let me without being bothered.

And yes! I did put together the cage :) With choroplast and organizing storage cubes. They are like grates almost (well, you can see them in the pic :P). It is about 6 ft. long so they each have ~ 2 1/2 ft across to run around in.

If there is anything else you want to know about them, send me a pm! :) I'm happy to talk about any number of animal creatures (I used to have rats too btw, I miss them!) :)
