In Our Fridge: Basil


Grilling season is finally here! Many of the girls' favorite fruits and veggies have been cropping up in stores. Watermelon, blueberries, corn, and tomatoes, just to name a few. Basil, however, is one of those herbs that elicits strong opinions. Some guineas love it while others can't stand the scent.

Breakfast with Revy

Chocolate. Popsicles. Toast. And now, add green smoothies to the list of foods that overly curious cavies have tried to sneak a taste of.

No, this isn't a belated Valentine's Day project. I realized that I never got around to sharing the finished paw prints so here they are! And in case you missed it the first time, a link to the DIY paw print tutorial.

When Breakfast Is Late

Poof waiting for bell pepper 

Every morning, Poof and Belka are the first ones waiting at the cage doors. After all, it's common cavy knowledge that the early pig gets the treat. Or more of them, anyways.

Mowing Season Is Here


It's that time of year again! No, not the holidays. Spring! Blossoms are sprouting, pigs are rejoicing over fresh grass... and us humans are stuck battling the explosion of weeds. But never mind about that.

The Cali Cavy girls were all too happy to get outside the weekend before last. There was even a short term ceasefire that held for a good twenty minutes as they focused on the lawn. After all, priorities! Eat first, squabble later. You can see how thrilled they are in the video.

Ask Alice: Is It Too Late To Get A Second Guinea Pig?

Answering your guinea pig care questions.

"I was given my Lola back in October and I absolutely love her. I was told she is about 4 years old. 
Can I bring in another baby/young guinea pig to keep her company?"
-Tennille
Hi Tennille,

It's never too late to introduce a single pig to a new friend. In fact, many older pigs respond more positively to a younger companion - with their smaller size, an established pig is less likely to view the newcomer as competition or as a potential threat to their social standing. Of course, that's not to say that pigs of similar age or size won't get along. Like people, bonding depends more on the individual pigs and their personalities. You never know who may hit it off.

Yes, I've finally gotten on the bandwagon... what can I say, it's been a crazy year!

You won't find any selfies here - just photos of the Cali Cavy guinea pigs in all their furry glory. Disclaimer: the occasional outdoor adventure, dessert, and other cute critter may also make its way on there. You've been warned.
