The guinea pig or 'cavy' is a species of rodent in the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

Despite being called 'guinea pigs' they are not in the pig family or from Guinea.

Guinea pigs live on average for 4 - 5 years but sometimes as long as 8 years.

The guinea pig is an important creature for many indigenous South American people, especially as a food source. But also for customary medicine or religious ceremonies.

Guinea pigs purr when they are happy, often, like a cat it is when they are being held or petted. They make a whistle noise when they are excited, usually on seeing their owner or when its feeding time.

Just before I start, this is not mine. I found it in a magazine called Wacky But True

Do you think guinea pigs can laugh? No? Surely their lips twitch. When a guinea pig is really happy, it jumps all around, and this is called popcorning. See if your guinea pig laughs so much at these jokes that he starts popcorning around for you.

Q: What did the grape say when the guinea pig stood on it?
A: Nothing, it just gave out a little wine!
Did it wink then?

Q: When do guinea pigs run away from rain?
A: When it's raining cats and dogs!
Show any signs of being scared at this joke?

Q: When does a guinea pig go 'moo'?
A: When it is learning a new language!
What about a twitch of these whiskers here?

Q: Why did the guinea pig cross the road?
A: To show that it was not chicken!
I bet you got a bit of a head nod at that one. No guinea pig wants anyone to think it's chicken

Jesse coming home
You might ask "Jessica?Why not Snowy or Cocoa Or-Something else!" Cause my friend Emma had some named Cocoa and Pumpkin and her dog got a hold of them (pray for Emma) so NO food names.I also call her Jess or Jesse Or MESSY JESSE! She has a two story cage and she flings her hay and poop out the little bars on the counter! If I put her in a basket of something *SPLAT!* 8 turds roll out at once!Gross. On the upside she pooped on my brother!!GOOD HE DESERVED IT.I love her!She is a girl (You dont say!) I dont know how old she is but we might get her a buddy!!

She gave birth at 5 weeks old.. and she died today. She was a good guinea pig, had the most wonderful pups, Otis, Slagathore, and Petunia. She loved to be held, and how did he pass? Well she got sick, got tinier and tinier until eventually her death came. She's in a better place, where she can see more animals. Maybe she'll see Gracey and Ariel, our other guinea pigs that passed a few years back. They were good pets too, and I'd talk about my other pets but that would be out of subject of the club, so yeah. Milo, R.I.P., we'll miss you very much, and we hope you have a great time in that guinea pig cage in the sky.

Many a time a cute guinea has grossed out its owner by picking up its own poop and ate it right there. Don't worry this is a normal healthy habit amongst guinea pigs and should not be discouraged. This habit is called cophrology. Guinea pigs release two different types of dung. One type is the one we all know which is just solid waste. The other type which guinea pigs excrete is called caecotrophs. These caecotrophs contain water, vitamins and protein. Guinea pigs excrete caecotrophs because they cannot chew thier food fully and thereby required to digest thier food a second time. Isn't that food for thought.
