Guinea Pigs

Guinea pigs make excellent pets!

They have delightful personalities and are great companions for adults and children. Guinea pigs love to be petted. Children must be supervised when they are holding a guinea pig. They must be taught not to hug or hold them too tightly. Guinea pigs have a vocabulary of about nine sounds, they whistle, purr, and squeal. They will whistle in response to the rustling of plastic bags or the opening of refrigerator doors where their food is most commonly stored. Though they’re small they still require a great deal of care. Their water needs to be replaced everyday. Their cage needs to be cleaned regularly. They love to explore and need supervised ‘floor’ time for play and exercise. With loving attention and care your Guinea pig will thrive and will become a loved pet.  Please consider adoption!
