After fighting each other
To care guinea pigs, you have to find food, and you have to solve the fights between cavies. Because cute little animals are living creatures, they behave unpredictably, and this can cause deep wounds for reasons you don't understand.
So did I. Two adorable guinea pigs, Pinky and Squash, started growling at each other one day. It wasn't threatening at first. Then I felt their growling and alertness rising. Raising all of their hair, grinding their teeth, and shaking the teeth is a dangerous sign. They will soon fight to the point of blood some day
Eventually my adorable piggies got into a bad fight the day we went out and both bled. Fortunately, the wound was not too deep, and emergency treatment was provided.
Now we have recovered a lot from each other. Pinky was very worried about the wounds on his face, but now the wounds have healed so much that they are invisible.
After everything was settled, my son sent me a picture like the one below.
It's so cute, but why does Pinky run to him whenever he sees squash? It was as if he was trying to show that he was ready to bite. These two are still unordered.
How great would it be if the guinea pigs got along well as if they were having a party as shown below?
For the time being, we will have to keep the two piggies separately. They are raised separately when playing, eating, and sleeping separately. Still, they are not at all lonely and invisible. In general, guinea pigs cannot live alone, but our piggies are truly unique.
