Bathtime for Tooey!

Ya know - I really don't like these. My mom thinks they're necessary for some reason. For cryin' out loud - I'm a guinea pig! Who cares what I look (or smell) like!

And they're embarrassing!

I mean - how many people do YOU allow to see you while dripping wet with your fur (clothes) on?

Well - at least I'm good for another month now. Stress - no one ever thinks about the stress we guinea pigs must suffer....bad for our health....shortens our lives....probably our fur too.

  1. this is definitely a first. I have NEVER heard of bathing a guinea pig. I had a hamster die of pneumonia once...be careful

    1. That's why we do them in the hot summer! He's a lucky boy and does not get any in the winter! Every boy's dream!

  2. You are such a good mommy and take care of those piggies. He is such a cutie. Love his little chirpy sound. LOL

  3. and... I'd say he deserved a BIG treat after that :) I've been drying fruit and i was wondering what kind of treats piggies like to eat... apples ?

    1. Piggies like MANY things! Almost all veggies and fruits - raw of course. My 'kids' love bananas and start chirping as soon as they smell them 15 feet away! Broccoli and cabbage leaves are plentiful in the greenhouse right now so that's what they get these days.

    2. I was chatting with Scrappy Rat about dehydrated raw apples as critter treats and will probably be offering some up with the apple wood sticks this upcoming season.

      As always I'm curious what other small critter might like them- ratties, piggies, rabbits, chinchillas etc. If you think yours might like to try some- i can send some as a sample for a 'control test'.

      To give pleasure to a piggie would be soooo fabulous... xo

  4. Tooey is so cute! I love the sounds he makes. I'm sure he feels a lot better after his bath.
