See, I have weird dreams. Mostly about animals, since that's what I see all day long. One night I had a dream that I had 3 guinea pigs. One was Calico colored, another was white, and another was black with white around his eyes. (That's how detailed my dreams are). Anyway, later that day I was at work and a girl came in and started asking about guinea pigs. She said she had found some in a cage at the mailboxes in her apartment complex (It was over 90 degrees that day, too!) and she didn't know what to do with them. She couldn't keep them, as she had a baby and had her hands full with that, not to mention she knew nothing about them! But she brought them to our clinic because she could tell they needed help. They both had obvious "guinea pig mange" - One had NO HAIR on the lower half of his body and the other had patches of hair loss and small red sores on his body. The one with no butt/leg hair also had ulcers on his eyes. I felt so bad for these little guys, and I thought that since I had the dream the night before, and here these guinea pigs are coming into the clinic, it must be MEANT TO BE for me to take them. So I did. (There are pictures at http://netjunk.com/users/thatkat/pets.htm)
I am SO IN LOVE with these little guys. The white one's wounds are all gone and he is FAT. The brown one (who was very underweight) has gained over 100 grams since I got him and his hair is growing back and his eyes are getting better.
I LOVE reading the posts here, and especially looking at everyone's avatars (I think that's what they're called? - the cute little pictures under your user names!). If I had a decent digital camera I would take one with my piggies in it.
Anyway, enough rambling.

My only suggestion is that your cage is a little small for two males. You can make a bigger bottom using Coroplast, which looks like corrugated cardboard but is made of plastic. I would suggest at least 2 x 4 cubes.
Your pigs are adorable! And I love the photos of your other animals.
