When you are petting your guinea pig, and it makes a noise, that's called purring (like cats but a lower volume) and then their body vibrates, that means it's content with however you are petting them.

I have a guinea pig named Chelsea (just got her today) and she does this every time I hold her. It's adorable!

It is like purring which is actually a strong vibration of their heart because it beats faster than ours does.

Do guinea pigs make croaking and chirping sounds?

Yes! Guinea pigs have a whole plethora of vocal noises. Some are slightly more obvious than others and can have a reason for them. Squeaking is most often about excitement, for example the anticipation of getting a tasty food treat. If they make a low chirping noise often referred to as a purr it can mean that they feel threatened or frightened. Very much depends on their body language as well as the noise, if you are trying to establish why they are making that sound.

It could be related to: - response to being scared or angry, in which case the rumble often sounds higher and the body vibrates shortly - dominance within a group if you have more than one guinea pig - petting in the wrong spots (for instance, on your pet's underside) Please check the provided link for comparing the sound you refer to to the sound database of the Guinea Pig Manual.

What sounds does a guinea pig make and what do they mean?

my guinea pigs used to make two main types of noise, one a sort of chirrup when his whole body would sort of shudder with the sounds, that one seemed most when he was happy ie saton my knee eating some sweetcorn or something. and a sort of higher pitched whistling which seemed to be his sort of way saying hello, when we walked near his cage he would make that noise and run over to us. also my guinea pig makes little grunt noises. That means she is Hungary because when i gave her more food she stopped and ate, she was alot happy after that!!

If a guinea pig squeaks does it mean its happy?

well, since guinea pigs can only make one noise, which is a squeak, then it ca go both ways, but generally a guinea pig only squeaks when it is frightened or scared, but it is different with all guinea pigs, as it is with humans. Howvever, it is also heavily dependant on the body language. (eg whether it is tryong to run away, whether it is wide eyed.)
