time the pur is like arumble strut it's kind of a challengebut they're usually thrilled whenthey're making that sound but sometimeswhen use when you rub them on the buttespecially they feel like you'rechallenging them and they might purr butWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20they might / because you're forcing theminto a dominant-submissiveencounter that they might not want so beaware of what / is

  1. Gary is so handsome and mikes little lips are amazingly cute. I have a baby boy that is barely getting used to us after almost 3 weeks. He is potty training and doing great so far. I love your channel and I learn so much. You do such a good job.

  2. I have a question. I recently adopted a little girl (they believe she's a girl) she's on the older side. I don't know her age, however I have a question for the sounds she makes. She makes a couple of sounds, but they are sooo low I can't tell if she's squeaking, purring or happy. She doesn't seem upset and her body language doesn't exhibit being upset or annoyed. Actually for being with me for only two days she seems extremely sweet and relaxed. I'm just kind of lost because with baby guinea pigs I feel like their noises are a lot more clearer.

  3. Guineas transformed me for 41 years,saw lots of the funniest expressions,they even sulk ,so don't ignore guineas,especially if got a few ,or one,even worse

    I carried a guinea in armycoatpocket
    We called it pockets,it stood up with one paw drawn inward,like Emperer Napoleon

    Alexander (,white guinea)

    raced around the basement,landlord showing basement was not offended

    We had a guinea named "BOOM"

    She had 8 babies ,3 lived

    Bristlepig(behaved,very bad)even faked playing dead,very rambunctious


    And Nostrildamus ,later pointerpig in VFW office,loads of laughter !!

  4. I’m a new owner with two precious baby male piggies! It’s been a week and now they are chattering and chasing/popcorning each-other! Your videos really helped me understand how to care them and hopefully I’ll be close to them like how you are with your babies!!!

  5. Dude, you're a goofball but honestly, you've taught me a lot about piggies and I think I'm going to get a PAIR of them. IF I do — I will certainly go to the LA rescue, of course. Thanks Scott

  6. You're just like me, I constantly kiss my guinea babies and they loveeee it haha. Thanks for all these amazing videos you do! They're fantastic and I always always binge them, I've learned so much from you

  7. “Guinea pigs are pretty successful eaters”
    And then there’s my guinea pig Buddy, who can’t get a piece of hay in his mouth first try even though he’s been eating Timothy hay for 4 years. He always ends up poking his nose or his eye or his lip and never getting it into his mouth. He has to lift his paw up to shove the hay in his mouth. And then there’s my guinea pig Dude who doesn’t care

  8. Hi Scott,.
    Do you know this guinea pig sound that sounds like a bird?
    Thea often do that in the night, when nobody is in their near.. When one guinea pig make that sound, all the other guinea pigs in their near are frozen, they don't move…
