I watched some tv with Gizmo tonight. Besides peeing on me he was very good. Oh, he also chewed some of my hair out. I took it away before he could swallow it.
I put him on my bed and offered him some spinach and celery. He wanted none of that! He would much rather have my hair and my paperback book! :P
He was making those noises again, kinda like a teapot. Then he started walking around my bed all strange. It was like he wanted to go somewhere but couldn't make his mind up. He walked to the edge and I was prepared to grab him, but then he ran back to me and hid his head in my shirt :P
Then he weeked! At least, I think it was a week. It was the same sound but much louder. He made it when I offered some celery. Again, he didn't take the celery but he weeked! He grooms himself on me and fell asleep on my bed. I think we've bonded =D
I've noticed he's rather clumsy. He goes up on his hunches to groom himself but he's falls very quickly. I'll just have to be careful he doesn't fall off my bed next time he gets free roam :)
No photos this time! Next week I plan on taking him outside to graze on our backyard lawn (not treated). He'll be in a playpen :)

Current Mood: happy happy

YAY! He peed on you. Be happy about that.
Start out with simple veggies and work up. Maybe start out with a carrot and a pice of lettus. I know my guys didn''t want any veggies at all, but now they eat just about any veggie i give them. He just has to understand that it is good food.
I can't tell you how happy I am for both of you! So glad that you saved him. If not for you he'd be dead in a bag, or crushed under a ton of trash!

I offered him many types of veggies, I just mention celery to save time ;)
I offered him a baby carrot, celery, romane lettuce, a bell pepper (why ANYBODY would accept that is beyond me!), and part of a banana :)
He would have been dead before he got crushed. Aren't they sensitive to cold? It was nearly 49 degrees where my college is that night :(

I guess just leave some veggies in his food bowl, he'll have to get courious with it soon or later. Yes piggies are not good with the cold or the hot.

yay! Glad you are bonding! I talked to my friend Sami last night (who will be sharing my appt with me) and she doesnt want me to have a guinnea pig because she says they smell...is that true? Like a natural smell, nothing to do with clean bedding and such. She compared it to ferrets but not as bad. I'm just going to have to convince her anyways =)

Their smell is like a rat. They smell if you don't keep their environment clean. Nasty cage+pig sleeping on nastiess=STINKY
He doesn't have any odar that I can detect.
Ferrets would have an odar since they are related to skunks ;)

Oh, and I don't know if full grown boars smell. YOu might want to ask pocketedsmile about that. All I know is he has no odar at all :)

Piggies really do not have smell to them. Their bedding stuff may give them a smell, but only if you don't keep up with cleaning the cage. Ferrets -stink- (had one) compared to piggies!!! Go to a pet store or something, pick one up and smell it. They don't smell, maybe your friend just doesn't want you to have a pet? Or maybe she is mis-informed on them. You may want to take her along with you to go smell them. You can always buy some bunny shampoo and give it a bath. I bathe my guys once a month. They don't stink or anything, but their coats start looking oily.

Thanks for your help! (both of you). She said her step-siblings had like 3 and they smelled, but I'm willing to bet it is because of cage cleanliness, I have held guinnea pigs many times and never thought they smelled bad. This summer before I got a job at Petsmart (but im in the grooming salon, so I dont get to work with the piggies) my friend worked there, and whenever I was sad or upset or something shed be like "come here" and let me hold the guinnea pigs, lol, so now I associate guinnea pig = feeling better. I think I'm just going to quietly accumulate info on them, and then one day come home with it and just be like "but he NEEDED a home!!" then she'd fall in love and get over it, lol

You're welcome! I too associate piggies with feeling better. Whenever I'm in a crappy feeling mood, I just grab one of my guys and they just make me feel better.

My boyfriend thought I was stupid for getting my first guinea pig (Manny), because he thought they were scared of everything and not friendly or nice. Little did he know, and that is why he has three of his own today... and he wants another one.

haha its funny how people can change their minds about animals. When I got my first rat my mom was like "RATS ARE GROSS EW I HATE IT BLAH BLAH BLAH" but let me keep it only because I was already so attatched to her. Now she loves them, and always tries to sneak them treats when I'm not looking and such (they are on a diet right now, because they are getting really fat, lol)
