Guinea pig ask - URGENT

Hey, thank you for rescuing the guinea pig, that’s super lovely of you! I have owned guinea pigs but it was a very long time ago, as child, and although I’ve learnt some things on tumblr, I don’t really feel I can verify what is good information and what isn’t so I think it’s best if someone else with more experience answers this, rather than me throwing possibly helpful links at you or something.

But many of my followers have guinea pigs so please consider signal boosting or answering this question if you know about guinea pig stress management and preparation. Thank you! :)

(Good luck and sorry I can’t be of more help.)

I am really missing my little Garibaldi Rous today. He was the world’s sweetest capybara.

So today turned out to be awesome.

Flint came to me unsocialized and fearful. For the past 11 months he’s been with me, he never wanted to settle down for any bonding time, until today. I had him out watching tv with me and he curled up in my arm and bruxed as I pet him, for about thirty minutes straight.

Whenever I read a ‘rat care guide’ on the internet I always want to see ‘PATIENCE’ written in bold lettering in the ‘how to prepare for your new rat’ checklist. Flint has always been a fearful, anxious nipper. Many people would claim he’s a ‘bad rat’ or not a ‘good pet’. Which of course is not the case. Flint is a wonderful ratty, who needs someone who understands rat behavior and is patient enough to work with him at HIS pace.

What’s disturbing to me is that people get the ‘Well you’re gonna like me or else’ attitude with small animals. People try to spite these creatures by shoving them in small cages, or dragging them from their cages to ‘socialize’ (terrify) them against their will.

Bond with your companion animals at there own pace. You can’t force trust.

I always think that the best way to bond with an animal is to go the way they want to go, at the speed they want to go. You sum it up perfectly by saying “you can’t force trust”. And when you’ve truly earned a tiny animal’s trust, it’s the most amazing feeling in the world. Thank you for this post. I hope you and Flint continue to make progress. :)
