Don't forget to hug your piggies daily! Like every other pet, guinea pigs need love and affection. The more time you spend talking to, feeding, and handling them, the closer your bond will be. With time, your cavy will learn to be more trusting and comfortable around you.
Besides, hugging piggies is therapeutic - not only are we soft and cuddly, but we also retain soothing aromatherapy properties (Eau de Pig: top notes of lettuce, parsley, and other herbs, middle notes of cucumber, bottom notes of fresh hay).
Under extremely cozy conditions, we piggies also emit sleep inducing nap fumes so please do not drive or operate heavy machinery while under the influence.
