Guinea pig fighting
My guinea pigs, Pinky and Squash, have been living with us peacefully for three months. But after we returned home from a brief half-day out of town, we found Pinky injured. There were traces of blood running down Pinky's neck, and we could see Squash's dark brown fur torn from every corner of the cage.
Perhaps there was a fierce fight while we were away. We urgently healed Pinky's wounds and then blocked the wall between the cages to separate the two.
Reasons for a pig to show aggression may include fear, lack of trust, maternal instincts, hormonal surges, dominance or uncertainty of one's place in the herd's hierarchy, lack of structure, hunger, lack of respect, or simply bad habits that were allowed in a previous home. (Aggression - American Mini Pig Association)
My guinea pig Pinky has a gentle personality. He is a good eater and hates waiting. It's 1.5 times bigger than Squash and has a lot more power. And he likes people, so when we approach the cage, Pinky comes running to us. Potty training is not good, and he poops and pees here and there, and sometimes he sleeps on the pee. Scattering the hey is a habit.
Squash is the opposite of Pinky. It is clean and only poops and pees in designated places. When eating hey, hold it only at the end and eat it carefully. He hate to mess things up. Despite his small stature, he has a sensitive and courageous personality. Compared to Pinky's timid, Squash is a nimble warrior.
That's why we thought that two guinea pigs with opposite personalities would one day fight. However, perhaps because of Pinky's surprisingly gentle personality, they got along well even in situations where they almost had to fight, and they got along well.
Pinky is a shy and lonely character. When someone hugs and pets Pinkie, he likes to close his eyes. Thanks to this lovely Pinky, they got along well with the sensitive Squash. However, one day, Pinky suddenly became sensitive, perhaps because of the animal's mating season.
One day, Pinky seems to have awakened. The fact that he is much bigger and stronger than Squash. He didn't dodge or yield like he used to when Squash flirted with something. But this did not lead to a fight.
The problem arose when we were away for a while. Thinking about it now, it's terrifying. Animals, too, realize that even the slightest eye opening causes problems.
They were separated from each other by a wall for two days. Surprisingly, Squash enjoyed his space alone. It didn't look uncomfortable or difficult at all. On the other hand, Pinky kept looking for squash. He turned his head in the direction of Squash and lay crouched down.
After being bitten and torn like that, why does Pinky miss Squash? Anyway, after a few days, when the two became stable, we opened a dividing panel under our monitor for a while and put the two together. Then Pinky was injured again by Squash's attack suddenly. We hastily put an end to the fight, screened again and healed Pinky's wounds. This time, it seems that the wound is deep, and my heart aches.
For a while, Pinky's wounds seem to make her feel bad. One of my worries is whether Squash will have to live alone in the future. Is he the type of pigs who lives alone without being able to mix forever? Even after being so hurt, Pinky still misses Squash. We hope that these two will soon return to their loving and peaceful relationship.
3 months with guinea pigs
I have been living with a guinea pig for 3 months now. Pinky and Squash are our best friends and adorable pets. They give us infinite love and pleasure to the extent that we cannot understand how we have lived without them until now. Of course, day-to-day cleaning and caring is still difficult.
These days, the grass and clubbers grow well and fresh. I cut it for them every day. Pinky and Squash love the cut grass like this. They always look at me while eating. As if to say thank you.
If I compare it to the previous photo, I can see that the squash is growing very well. Pinky still enjoy eating the most and is plump.
Pinky shakes the cage like this every day, begging for more carrots.
The picture above was taken a month ago. Looking at the last photo, I can see that they were really small and young.
As shown in the photo below, Squash, who showed a tense appearance every day, stretches his legs and relaxes like never before. He loves his cage so much. he keeps trying to get back to the cage even when he has been out for a while.
As Pinky grew older, his heart-shaped buttocks became thicker. We believe that it is the love he shows for us.
Now these two mischievous piggies don't run away or startle us as often as they used to, but rather approach us and ask for carrots.
Squash still doesn't enjoy playing outside, but Pinky runs around the out of cage at this time. We bought clothes for the lovely Pinky and tried them on.
We do this every day with a playpen spread out outside the cage for exercise. But they are more obsessed with carrots than exercise.
On a nice day, we put them on a little trampoline that we doesn't use much now and let them get some fresh air under the shade. This is also their favorite time.
