A storm is any disturbed state of an environment or in an astronomical body’s atmosphere especially affecting its surface, and strongly implying severe weather.

It may be marked by significant disruptions to normal conditions such as strong wind, tornados, hail, thunder and lightning (a thunderstorm), heavy precipitation (snowstorm, rainstorm), heavy freezing rain (ice storm), strong winds (tropical cyclone, windstorm), or wind transporting some substance through the atmosphere as in a dust storm, blizzard, sandstorm, etc. (source)

Whenever it storms it can be quite a scary time for a guinea pig. They hate loud bangs and things that rattle and bang against their cage or hutch.

So what can we do to help?

During a storm, a guinea pig should be kept safe. The best thing you could do for them is to take them inside either into your home or into an outhouse which is secure and safe for them and keeps them away from the elements such as the wind, rain or snow.

Keeping them away from the elements means that they are away from harm and potentially in a warm place.

If you can put them in your home, this is the best place for them and will ensure that they are warm and secure.

When they are inside your home they will benefit from the time they spend with you and your family. The warmth of your home will benefit them from a health point of view. It will be so much better for them than being outside.

They will also benefit from the social interaction with you and your family. They are social creatures and love to spend time with others, whether guinea pigs or people.

If you can’t bring them into your home, then consider putting them in an out house or shed which is dry and free of drafts. This too is a much better place for them than being outside exposed to the elements.

Even if the outhouse is dark, the guinea pigs wont mind as they are well accustomed to living in the dark and can move around in pitch black without any issue at all.

It is how they survived in the wild and kept away from the clutches of predators.

So if you have an outhouse then this is the next best option to being in your home.
