Once again I am sorry for not being as active as normal. My house had flooded in February, causing massive damage to my house. Also, my house has been suffering with no internet! I know terrible isn't it? Yes, my internet has been broken for a very long time and I have just recently--today--got it fixed. My house sense the flood had to go under a lot of construction, causing me to be away from fixing the internet problem for so long.  

My house :house: is actually doing very well now, as in the flood damage is completely fixed, we have remodeled our bathroom, kitchen, etc. Also we have painted the inside and outside of our house. Also on top of all of this house business I have had to deal with the homework of high level honors classes :pencil:causing me to have no time for anything else. Luckily I have been getting great grades,have fixed our house and also our internet!

Lastly I have to say I really miss having guinea pigs! Now that mine have all passed away or I have given them to a better home I have come to miss them and wish I had the time for another guinea pig. Sadly I can't get another guinea pig, for several reasons, but I do love to look at old pictures of them, sense I do miss them very much. Also this group helps me because I love seeing all of your lovely photos, drawings, etc. But most of all I love seeing how much you care for and how much you guys love you Guinea Pigs!

Thank you all for being such wonderful members/admins!!

--If you celebrate Thanksgiving I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!--

Miss all my lovely Guinea pigs :rose:

:groups: Being an admin is an important job. You must check on the group and advertise for the group. You have to agree to follow the rules of being an admin or tell me it would be easier for you to remain as a member. If you are not interested in checking deviant art all the time for the group, that is fine. Just tell me and I will let you be a member. When you become an admin you MUST follow the rules. It is a fun job to do as long as you follow the rules required to be an admin. I am happy at the admins I have right now, and I hope I can remain happy with them. I also watch all my admins ;) They are a great bunch and I am happy to call them my admins :) :groups:

I have a question about my guinea pig and I thought maybe you'd be able to answer it. Recently he's started to drink way more water than he did before - he drinks his entire water bottle from about 8 am to 9 pm and I have to refill it for the night. Is that okay or is there something wrong with him?

He could just be thirsty. But if you are concerned I would take him/her to the vet because there are medical problems that can make an animal very thirsty. You could look on the internet but idk if I would completely recommend that because I know when I look on the internet everything sounds a lot worse and it can scare you so I would think your best option is to go to the vet

~ Excessive drinking could be a sign of diabetes, which guinea pigs can get. A guinea pig who has diabetes will also urinate much more than usual because of the high water intake. As a result, you might find yourself having to change the bedding more frequently than usual. Other signs of diabetes include weight loss and increased appetite. 

~If your guinea pig's cage is in a hot spot, he might be drinking more than usual because of the temperature. Just like you drink more in summer, your guinea will drink more if the heat factor has suddenly started to creep up. Try moving the cage away from the heat and make sure there's no direct sunlight shining over the cage at any time. This could quickly overheat a guinea pig.

~Guinea pigs can experience kidney failure, which happens when the kidneys stop working and can no longer excrete the toxic waste products the body produces. In guinea pigs -- just like in humans -- a common sign of kidney failure is excessive drinking, accompanied by increased urination, weight loss, lethargy and vomiting.

If the 1st and 3rd one sound like your guinea pig I would strongly recommend taking him to the vet. I am sorry for such a late reply, my internet in my house has been broken for a very long time and was just fixed today. I hope your guinea pig is okay and wish you a happy Thanksgiving :)

Thanks so much! We took him to the vet but they said he's fine. He lost a teeny tiny bit of weight, but they said it could have been just the way he was sitting on the scale.
