And this is a overhead view of the x-pen part (with additional litterboxes since Witherspoon is still in training). Part of the floor is grass mat and part is covered with thin cloth rugs:

And here is a pic of them grooming each other in the front part of the cage. They are really in love. I don't have the heart to tell them that they're not both guinea pigs.

How do you get any cooking done?

So you have a Guinea pig and rabbit living together? (sorry if this is on another thread but I haven't been able to read a lot of posts lately). Is the Guinea pig potty trained too? How funny that they are in love.

Me, too!

How did your convince your rabbit that the guinea pig was worthy of his notice? My rabbits pretend like the GPs are lesser beings. Perhaps if they don't acknowledge the GPs, they won't really be there.

Cooking? What is "cooking"?

Chip loves guinea pigs in general. I let him run around the living room for exercise and he jumps from cage to cage, eating their hay and pooping in their litter boxes. Most of them don't mind.

But his favorite piggy seemed to be Witherspoon, in whose cage he spent most of his time. He would nibble on Witherspoon's hair and lick his ears and then stick his head under the piggy's chin for reciprocation. They both seemed really lonely so I decided to move them in together and they both seem happier now. Every time Witherspoon walks by, Chip lowers his head to the floor and closes his eyes in the hopes that Wither will come groom him.

Witherspoon is working on his potty training. His habit seems to be using his bed for a litter box and nowhere else. So it's just a matter of re-directing him to a new poopy place.

The Chip/Witherspoon story is the best one I've heard in a long time. It's got to be fun to watch.

I just wanted to mention something a which is discussed a little on this thread.

I bought a sheet of Spay and Neuter stamps and on the top of the sheet it says: "For neuter/spay information, call 1-800-pets-911 or visit"

I thought it was nice to see a rescue website listed.

That is great news. I don't think anyone has found me through that site yet. Save-A-Pet, PetFinder, and the Cavy Classifieds seem to send me the most.

Charybdis- just FYI, I do see a lot of billboards advertising 1-800-save-a-pet. I've seen it quite a bit around the Los Angeles area by the freeways.
