Cavy House Guinea Pigs 
Available For Adoption


Males or Females? Which Should I Get?

Many people come to us requesting females, because they’ve read that all males fight and all females get along. This simply isn’t true.  Yes - some males will fight, but so will some females. Adolescent males can be a bit of a challenge, but almost all of the pairs we’ve adopted out get through their adolescence with only minor squabbles.  Some of our toughest piggies to bond have been female. It could be that in years past when everyone kept their guinea pigs in tiny pet store cages that males fought quite a bit. Just imagine trying to house 2 teenage brothers (humans) or for that matter, any two humans, in a closet or elevator together - yes, things could get confrontational. But with today’s bigger cages, happily bonded pairs of males, females or both are happily quite common.  To us, it all comes down to individual personalities. Come see who you like - who you connect with - and who is getting along.

    For the past few months, Paddington and Pastuzo hsve been staying with my one remaining personal piggy, a very sweet 5 year old neutered male named Pedro. Pedro has been with me since he was a few weeks old, and has had a large variety of cage-mates. Well, it turns out that Pedro is quite taken with Paddington. I’ve never seen him rumble-strut and move around so much for another piggy.  So, at this point, I’ve decided to keep Paddington and Pastuzo around to keep Pedro company.  After Pedro goes to the Rainbow Bridge, Paddington and Pastuzo will become available for adoption.

This leaves me with no adoptable piggies at this time.  Cavy House will continue to board piggies on a limited basis.
