After feeding him and settling in for a day at work (I work in my home), he usually begs for his desk bed. I have a big, soft, warm lounger for him right on my desk in which he typically spends an entire day and he's usually clambering at his cage walls and wheeking when I'm logging in.
I speak to him softly while very gently stroking his back. It keeps him calm and happy when he's on my lap or my desk and he seems content about the way I interact with him. It also helps when I have to do the things he doesn't like such as pedicures and boar cleanings.
I just got a 16week old guinea pig about a week ago. I need some help figuring out this sound it makes when i pet him during lap time please! sometimes it's soft, sometimes it gets louder.
I'm not sure if he likes me.. He does not wheek when i enter the room, or make purring sounds when i pet him in the cage. He doesn't popcorn either. He feeds from my hand, but runs back into the hutch after grabbing the food, then chew on the wodden frame of the hutch once he's done eating. I've tried talking to him and scratching his ears and chin, but he's still nervous and hides in the hutch when my hand is in the cage.
I've tried scouring websites, but i still can't tell if this sound is a nervous or happy one!
