First of all having a piggy that only goes in one corner is a good
thing. Keeps the cage neater, and perhaps she can be litter trained,
although because she is almost blind she probably won't want to be
running around in large spaces.
My guinea pig has bad cataracts. She's had cataracts since she was
two and I suspect her actual sight is just shadows but she does very
well. From read I've read you must keep her cage arranged the exact
same way so she knows where everything is. Always place her food in
the same space. She'll get used to it and once she gets used to the
concept of a cleaned out cage, she should be okay with it. I've heard
of other blind guinea pigs who have companions that help them.
Phoebe also does the constant smelling thing. I thought she was just
pointing to the fridge but she also sniffs the air after I've been in
I think with time, Molly will become a loving and well-loved guinea pig.
Evelyn and Phoebe the guinea pig.
