Before the trick-or-treating begins, put your guinea pigs in a safe, quiet room away from all the festivities. If you would like to dress up your guinea pig in a costume for a photo opportunity, make sure they only wear it for a couple of minutes and you supervise them at all times. Don’t use costumes that restrict breathing and visibility. Make sure that the costumes components cannot be ingested. Creating photoshopped costumes is the safest method! In this post, Patrice’s hat is illustrated on!
Guinea pigs love to be part of the family halloween festivities, but make sure that when your guinea pig is having floor time, that no halloween decorations are left out in case your guinea pig decides to have a taste. Ornamental cob webs and silly string could make your guinea pig very sick!
Long haired guinea pigs like Peruvian, Texel and Shelties require regular grooming. Patrice gets combed every day, and has a hair cut once a month. She has a bath about every three months, but only if she is smelly. Sometimes, Patrice is only dirty on her rear end, so she only has a buttocks bath. Tell us about your grooming schedule.

Little Patrice is a custom made felt guinea pig from the Etsy shop LilenokArt Handmade. We think Little Patrice is darling, but as Patrice is a spoilt only-child, she was less enthused!
Patrice always keeps an ear out for the fridge door, or plastic bags crackling. Do your guinea pigs wheek with excitement when they want a veggie treat?
