We just got our new guinea pig, 'Leo', and he is an Abyssinian. He is my first guinea pig and will not be our last. Pet stores have so much for them as well, you can spoil them at a descent price. They are really cuddly, lovable animals if that is what you are looking for. It is rare they bite, and are great for smaller kids. We did a little research before getting Leo, but I hope everyone enjoys their Guinea Pig, we sure do. :)

I really want an Abyssinian for my bday. I have a little sister and she would love her too. My parents are a little worried about the smell and responsibility. How do I prove them wrong? Please reply fast!

    Well, guinea pigs don't stink at all. if you get a male they might a little, but its a slight scent. Guinea pigs are a big responsibility, if you are looking for just 1 you have to make sure you give him/her a lot of attention. its best to get 2, but if can just get 1 that's perfectly fine. -MAKE SURE YOU LOOK UP THE INFORMATION FOR GUINEA PIGS- thanks!

I have a girl guinea pig I've had get for a while. She'll be 1 year old in October. I've heard alot about guinea pigs being playful but she never wants to play and she doesn't like it to much when people handle her... I don't know if that's bad or normal or what...

    The problem with trying to describe a personality of a 'group' of things whether they be guinea pigs, kittens, puppy, horses or even specifics such as siamese cat or Doberman - is they don't read the books on what humans write their behavior is.  Normally guinea pigs are playful but then the question 'what is play'.  Doesn't she sorta try and tickle your fingers?  Does she push marbles or little balls around if you roll them to her on the floor.  Does she like to stretch up to reach a treat?  There are many ways to play.  Some play cards.  Some play computer games.  Some play football or basketball.  Some knit.  All is normal.

    It varies from place of purchase. Most large pet retailers such as PetSmart, or Petco sell them for $20-30. However, I have found them cheaper at privately owned pet stores for $15.00.

    Hello my name is Dalia. And I'm a first time breeder with only one cute and adorable guinea pig who I love very very much. My pet guinea pigs name is Bugzie Casper, he's all white with light brown patches on the left side of his but I found out that he's half albino and half kaliko.

    A little guinea pig can be a really great pet and lots of fun. If you get one, it would be up to you to take care of. Just like your mom took care of you when you were really little, you would have to take care of your little guinea pig because it is really little and can't take care of itself. It is a good apartment pet but you have to clean the cage a little every day and then real well a couple times a week. You have to make sure he has food and fresh water. You have to hold him and play with him and talk to him and tell him stories. Of course you can tell him all your secets cuz he won't tell anyone ever. So if you are willing to clean the cage, feed and water the little fella and care for him - I think it would make a real good pet.

    I am also eleven and I am getting a guinea pig what kind would you recommend
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-08-05
    Get whatever guinea pig that likes you the best.

    Hello, I am 14 years old I have 3 guinea pigs. They are very loving. I have an Abyssinian, an American, and an American-silky. If you would like to comb/brush your guinea pigs hair I would recomend a silky or there are plenty of other breeds with long hair but if you don't really plan on taking care of it's hair besides bathing them then an American is best(: I love guinea pigs. Mine don't really run and play they like to lay down and be lazy and cuddle and that's about it. But you should look up all the different types of breeds and see what fits your personality. Since your a first time handler I think you should start out with a mellow guinea pig first, but that is my opinion but they are VERY loving. You just have to take care of them and interact with them a lot and stuff.  Hope you find a new best friend soon! Enjoy your guinea pig.!!!!(:

Hi. I just got a new AB after my first died. And now I'm very careful in taking care of it because I'm so scared that it will also die like my old piggie (until today I don't know why) I just got it for a month and it die, then I buy this little cutie again and I don't want same things happen to her. I've ask my friends that also adopt a piggie, but they also can't explain it. I need a really helpful tips to make sure I will successful on taking care of my new piggie baby. tq

    How old was your piggie? They can all die of old age they are just rodents they usually have a life span of anywhere between 7 to ten years it is very smart to have another little piggie in the same cage. Guinea pigs are very social and can be stressed or lonely and maybe die it might have been the food they need lots of vitamian c. It probably did not die from the cage but it is also smart to have a large cage with lots of running room with a shelter like one made of plastic that can be bought at a local pet store. They also need toys to chew on like wooden ones also bought at a pet store because you would want the small pet prefered kind so that you will know the wood will be clean because usually people will think to just throw pencil in there but a wooden pencil has lead which could kill your next pig. Hope you have a fun time with your new one.

    Observe them and see if they are active the more active that means it is very healthy.

    My ab, Bree died a couple weeks ago. My kids were so sad but when we got her they didn't know how old she was. Her head had squares of orange and white and she had a mowhawk. We just got her a buddy and she was very mean to her. We got a silkie which has hair that is very long and she chewed a bunch of her hair off but we sure miss our little piggie

What do they eat

    Skinny pigs eat the same diet as other guinea pigs. This consists of fruits, vegetables, and grains because they are herbivores. You can usually purchase a good guinea pig pellet or feed mix at a pet store and then supplement this with small amounts of fresh veggies and fruits occasionally.
  • Makenna - 2012-07-23
    Also pellets are better for them as the mixed diet contain more fat and calories that are not wanted and veggies. I beleive pellets are better but that is just my opinion. If you have a regular guinea pig you will feed it a noticable amount less then a skinny pig as it needs to maintain its body heat
