My friend has a guinea pig. For his birthday, we made him a cake using grass, hay, apple slices, guinea pig treats and carrots .He loved it, but when my friend decided to try a slice, she spat it out saying that grass was disguting!!

Hey! This site is cool! I have 4 guinea pigs, and I also have 3 hamsters 3 gerbils, 2 cats, 4 small birds,1 betta and 3 goldfish. I absolutly love animals!! Guinea pigs should be cleaned every 2 days depending on the size of their cage, and should be kept with a companion animal from the start! 2 guinea pigs together work good, but they should be brothers or sisters, or 2 females or 2 males. you can also keep guinea pigs with miniature rabbits. i had 1 of my guinea pigs with 2 miniature bunnys, but had to get rid of the bunnies bcuz of allergies. oh, and guinea pigs should get a piece of romaine lettuce every morning or every night (normal lettuce can hurt them, and large pieces of celery is poisonous, rubarb is also poisonous, and they should always have fresh hay availiable, and a rather large water bottle as they tend to drink alot!!

Guinea pigs are very sensetive(especially baby guinea pigs) so give them alot of love and they will soon grow to know you and love you back.

I have very important news for all guinea pig owners and people who know guinea pig owners: make sure guinea pigs only get little fruit and vegetables every week as they risk getting bloated by mainly

Guinea pigs use(timothy)hay as a prime source of teeth grinding - they need their hay everyday!Pigs teeth constantly grow, so the need something reliably and daily to grind on - so combine the hay need, with the bedding need - hey presto - happy teeth and a happy pig!


Go Chris! - a few posts down --- we (me and my partner) are grown ups who were just looking after *a* pig for a little while, we now have 6 with big indoor cages - and an outside run area - our friends thought we were stupid and a little daggy - but after they have sat for more than 5 minutes with them they realise that the pigs have more personality than they thought!

BTW - carrot is very good for them but only 2-3 times a week...it has something they can overload on if given daily...(and never give them seeds - very fatty;)- both these things can cause bladder problems later on.

Guinea pigs are easy pets to take care of. If you have 2 guinea pigs and only have one cage it is a good idea if you get 2 girls because they wont fight as much.

I have two guinea pigs Snowball and Sesame. When I got Snowball she was only about one month old. After a while I realized she was getting fatter. One morning I woke up and my sister told me she had given birth! My family had no idea Snowball was pregnant. So now we have Snowball and Sesame, who are both girls.

I like your site. Guinea pigs and rabbits should not be housed together, They are different, Have different needs, and a slight kick from a bunny could kill a pig.
howver, Guinea pigs can be housed with other guinea pigs, as buns can be housed with other buns.
