Bar chewing

My newly adopted guinea pig is the guinea pig version of Satan. She won't stop chewing on the bars of her cage. I've purchased Plexiglas but now she sits on top of her hides and tries to chew on the lid to her cage. I don't know what to do. She's driving me insane, my family says to return her to the shelter but I can't do that. I'm writing this post at 3 AM, i have no clue what to do and I need some help

Chewing the bars is a guinea pig version of a call for attention. Provide her with something to do, give her a companion, talk to her, pet her - don't leave her alone.

She needs a buddy, but make sure the cage is large enough for that.

How big is your piggie's cage? They need lots of room to run!

First, she needs space. Check out
Next, she most likely needs a companion. Guinea pigs are social animals and are happiest with a friend. Search for a local guinea pig rescue near you to adopt instead of buy.
