    Stay away from them. The sounds could be scaring them. Let them get used to human contact. But under any circumstances, do not completely cut them off from contact, because they are highly social, and Its a good thing you got two piggies. I have one, and he is really too old for a companion, so I try to give him as much attention as possible.

    Yay for pooping!

    Yeah, I heard that that's a good way :) Only problem is, they're not eating or drinking at all :( Right now I've had them for about 16 hours. The cage is right next to my computer, so I'm with them all the time. But so far, they still haven't moved at all.

    Good news, though, Luna pooed a LOT and peed too, so I'm hoping she'll get hungry. Miika still hasn't done anything :(


    thanks for the help!

    It could be. Yes Im a pig dude. LMAO

    So what you want to do is, get them accustomed to your presence. Talk to them. Hand feed them carrots or romaine lettuce. (they love it). Do this for a few minutes a day, and slowly increase time. Don't pick them up yet. Pet them once they seem comfortable.

    Hi! Are you a guinea pig person? Well, if you are, maybe you can help me! Today I got two guinea pigs, named Luna and Miika. They are two months old, sisters, bonded, etc. I brought them home and put them in their cage, and they are SO scared! They're both hiding in their little igaloos and stick bridges, and if I put my hand anywhere near them, they bolt :(
    They also aren't eating or drinking anything... I know, like, with my dogs, they often don't eat at first... is this the save with cavies??

    Well, thankyou!!
