How do you make your guinea pig feel more comfortable?
In its hutch your guinea pig should always, always have access to plenty of hay - they eat this (it helps their digestion) but they also like to play and hide in it. Make sure there is a covering on the floor of the hutch, like sawdust or wood pellets. When handling the guinea pig, pick it up with one hand under its bottom, the other under its shoulders so you don't hurt it. Sit down when you cuddle your piggie and stroke and talk to it lots. They like to feel secure. Do this regularly, and it will soon know and trust you and will be comfortable in your company. Most of all,guinea pigs love company - and this is what makes them feel happy. If you have an outdoor piggie, bring it inside or into a garage or shed in cold weather.

Answer It all depends on your culture! * Make sure they feel comfortable in your home. * Make them feel at home. * Offer food and drink. * Take… into account their culture: they might not be used to things you find normal and vice versa. * Ask them about themselves, how they have been, etc. * Welcome them into your family. * Go to the shops with them. * Do the things you would do normally. Answer It all depends on their comfort 1. Offer them coffee (if a kid juice, milk, etc) 2. Welcome them 3. Turn on the TV on what they want 4. Be nice to them 5. Make them a part in your family
Guinea pigs are very vocal and don't mind letting you know how they feel. Like dogs, or other pets, each guinea pig is unique and character. Some will react a little different…ly than others, but there are some basic guidelines. When they want something, they will make long high pitched whistles. When you get home from work or school and they want to be held, when you open the fridge and they know they are getting a carrot, or when they just need a little attention you will most likely get this reaction. When a guinea pig is scared, they will most likely make a run for it, If they are in a cage, they will back into a corner. They will begin high pitch whistling, but it will sound a little different than their "please give me a carrot" whistle. These will be shorter and faster. My husband and I have joked they sound more like a car alarm. They will also make warning type chatters that are a bit lower. If a guinea pig is very scared and you grab it, the little guy just may bite. Biting isn't as common in guinea pigs as some other rodents, but they could still do it. When a guinea pig is sad, you may not hear a lot out of him. If you have been very busy and he hasn't been getting his fill of lovens, he may not want to talk to you much. When you walk past the cage you could probably expect a couple of pleading whistles, but they can get a little sulky. When a guinea pig is happy and comfortable, it is an awesome thing. My guinea pigs have always gotten weekly baths in the kitchen sink. (They make a shampoo just for them.) Whenever we are done, they get wrapped in a warm towel and I hold them in my lap and dry them. They snuggle right in and start something like purring. When a guinea pig does this, it is from down deep and their entire body vibrates with it. They will hold out their chin for you to scratch underneath. After a few minutes of this they tend to take a pretty good nap.
The paper ball suprise toy is when you take a treat, put it in the middle of a non toxic no ink paper, give it to your cavy, and watch it tear apart the paper to reveal the tr…eat. You can also make an obstacle course for your cavy by cutting holes into shoeboxes and placing a treat at the end of the course.
You breed them of course! Baby guinea pigs are called pups.
JUST allow the girl go beside you and... show that you are comfortable with him .. it can help build the confidence of girl if she is with you..
I made a maze with a wooden bottom and cardboard walls. Mark out where the walls would go on the wooden board then cut pieces of cardboard to fit all the lines. Tape the cardb…oard pieces together where needed with masking tape. Make sure the cardboard stays standing up and that the space for the guinea pig to get through is big enough.
Really, the best thing for a guinea pig would be to get it a friend, but if you cannot do this for some reason, a mirror attached to the OUTSIDE of the cage will work too. It …has to be placed on the outside, unless it has been tested safe for the pigs.
A guinea pig's feelings are almost the same as humans- except theirs is not that complex... They can feel sad, anger, hurt, scared, worried, jealous(believe it or not). Ther…e might be a few others but these are the ones i know. Oh and i almost forgot... HAPPY! =]
Introduce her to your parents *Have dinner with her *Go to the movies *Hang out with her friends *Go shopping with her (or browsing) *Make sure that your friends aren't obnoxi…ous around her *Pay more attention to her than your friends *Flirt with her *Give her advice *Trust her
Um, I've never heard that before but all you need to do is buy a baby doll,(at a store) and/or buy baby doll daipers-so you know they won't hurt you guinea pig. That's how I'd… make a daiper for my guinea pig. Just go out and find super small ones :)

i perfer you dont because it might harm the pig
Look, sorry to disappoint, but guinea pigs aren't "active" animals. They are just used to the boring old life of eating, sleeping and wandering a few centimeters every n…ow and then. They're kinda like old cats, so please, for your guinea pig's sake, don't try to force it into doing anything that it doesn't want to do in order to make it more active. Buy a dog.
Good ways to make your guests feel comfortable is to be yourself and be sure to introduce people to each other if there are a few people that do not know each other. Be sure t…o circulate and get a chance to talk to each of your guests. Serve the first drink and then you can let people know they are welcome to use the bar (if you do not have a bar in your home then put the alcohol and mixers on a table close to where you are all sitting.) Try to keep the conversation light and airy. Generally guests will mingle and have different conversations with other guests.

If you mean how can you hold it after it's born...: It depends on the mother really. When mine were born, the mother had no problem in letting me hold her babies, but they nee…ded feeding so i couldn't hold them for long. If the mother starts getting worried when you try and pick one up, then i suggest you wait a while until she's fine with it. Sometimes you could have to wait for a couple of weeks.
