It’s happened…. my guineapig ate my hair! I was having some very much deserved cuddly time with Cookie and Gigi ( after Cookie had a recent abcess and dose of antibiotics cuddles are always the best medicine!). It was then that I heard this rather strange munching and being sat there like rapunzel with her hair all a flow turned to see a chunk of my hair in Gigi’s mouth!??!
Gigi don’t eat my hair!!??!?
To my dismay I began to slowly pull my hair out of Gigi’s chops to find the end had been munched off by 2 inches! The cheeky monkey knew no different and I sat in awe at the now shortened lock of hair that was attached to my head.
So this makes me ponder why do Guinea pigs eat hair?
- It must resemble hay to them? Therefore my hair is a ginger pile of yummy grass…
- They just happen to be peckish and there’s nothing else around to eat
- My guineapig felt like trying about of hair styling and decided to give me an up do!
What are your thoughts? Why do you think Guineapigs eat hair?
