Female Short-hair Guinea Pig
- Rescue group:
- PetRescue ID:
Toffee typically gets along well with other guinea pigs. She will take an interest in what you are doing, sometimes even eating out of your hand. She has come a very long way in her rehabilitation and handles relatively well; she can be quite wiggly and can be difficult to capture, but once she is secured in your arms she is generally content for a cuddle and a chin or head scratch. She will often climb up the bars when humans approach, eager to see what you're doing or if you have food. She is a very curious pig that has become much more adventurous and confident lately.
Toffee has no known physical medical conditions, though she does suffer from psychological problems. She will sometimes sit and sob for no apparent reason, ignoring the world and staring blankly into space while she cries. Sometimes the crying will be hoarse, as though she has a throat problem, but no medical causes for this have ever been found. It varies considerably in frequency; she may go a whole week without an episode, or she may have multiple episodes a day. The episodes have decreased in number and intensity since being here. She also has had two known aggressive outbursts since being here, which resulted in fights with her otherwise amicable friends. In these cases she was able to be reunited with them without incident after a couple of hours cooling down. It is unlikely that these outbursts would have a permanent effect on her relationships, but they are still something that needs to be monitored and intervened when necessary.
