they usually get fed at 7 at night, but lately they have started their
nightly squeak “I’m starving, I’m starving” at around 6. I am convinced
they are trying to beat us into submission to get
their dinner an hour early.
the two older ones have taken to standing up on their hind legs in the
middle of the cage so the squeak can bounce around the house
louder….they look so pathetic…..
I wonder if they know what they are doing…..

I think they know exactly what they are doing…indeed,i suspect THEY are
wondering what YOU are doing. Obviously after some discussion they have
decided to move dinner time up the priority list. Around 6pm they will be
watching you and thinking…….look at that..he’s still fooling around and
hasn’t feed us yet…lets stand on our hind legs and squeak as loud as we
can..give it a week and if that doesn’t work we will have to try something

Hi All. Our guinea pig Susie can tell the time too. We started giving her
lettuce treat at 5.30 because this is the time that we get home. Any day
that we haveoff, come 5.30 sure enough she is wheeking the walls down.
Unbelievable! My life is dictated by a small moving wig!

I wonder how they could tell the winter and summertime periods….

My piggie Ginger can tell time and isn’t fooled by weekends, either.
However Daylight Savings Time threw her off for a bit 🙂 She probably
thought “silly human…must be some kind of mind game you’re trying to
If we’re out for dinner and arrive late back, she gets all cute and asks for
food, and when you open the cage and drop it in, she may touch her teeth
against your fingers as if to say “I could take you down if I wanted! Be on
time next time!”
We went away on vacation for 2 weeks once – when she came back to us, she
did laps around her cage to show her displeasure, and tossed out a lot of
her hay by clawing at it.
