my name is Cecilia, and I just adopted two peruvian guinea pigs, Mortimer and Blu. I love them, but i have never taken care of a living being befote. I really feel like I just got a child, im paranoid about everything. I try my besy: I bought the guinea dad liner and i built a very big cage for when we will go back to my hometown for holidays. Now i am in Turin, the piggies came ONE MONTH AGO. They are still scared, even if they started picking food from my hand. I don't know what to do for example when i will move them to my hometown: will they hate me because i move them? Do they already hate me because i pick them up because i need to clean the cage? Will they ever love me or are they too grown up (2 years old) to love me? Is it too late for bonding? how should i behave? I chat with them and i hand feed them, but i am afraid they will never love me.
Thank you for listening, and thank you for all the great helpo you already gave me with this blog! Its illuminating!
