Guinea pig screaming? -
November 16th 2010, 05:28 AM
So I got a guinea pig a few months ago and everything is perfect with her, she's a happy health guinea pig (other then the fact that she has a huge butt :P ) but when we go to put food in her bowl I have to get the food out and the food comes in a huge bag so when I move it it's obvious that she's gonna hear it, the only problem is I think she's scared of the noise. Any time she hears a bag noise, paper being crumbled or anything of that sort (even a pillowcase with candy in it) she moves her ears back and starts screaming, the only other time I have ever heard her do this is when we turn the light off. We've started leaving some lights on at night so that she's okay but when she screams I can tell she's scared. . . . so I was wondering does any of you guys' guinea pigs do this? What could be the cause of her fear? Is there something medically wrong with her? And should I take her to the vet to get her checked out?
I haven't had any other problems with her, she likes baths, she loves any kind of vegetable or fruit (besides apples) and above all she loves to be held and cuddled, and she popcorns all the time which I have been worried about but my amazing man did some research and has reassured me many times that it's normal and if I still don't feel comfortable with her pop-corning don't make her popcorn (she normally popcorns if you rub her back/butt or rub her tummy)
Anyways thanks for reading this and helping me.
