Hi

I have a wonderful guinea pig called FRANKIE, she is very sweet and lives in her hutch with open space to the garden all through the day. She used to have a lovely kind Jack Russell called Tara who mothered her and looked after her, unfortunately her surogate mother passed away. Now she has the company of all the birds and cats that visit her garden.

She will be celebrating her 12th year this year I think this is a real achievment for a guinea pig and I would assume well on the way for a world record.
Thanks

Sue

I have six guinea pigs. One of them saved me from a snake.

Hi Laura, your message really moved us. Tac was part of our family for 7 years until she passed away last month. It was really hard but we gave her a happy life, with a lot of fun and love and that is what is important. I am sure your piggy loved you very much and I am sure she/he had a great life with you. So please dry your tears and think happy thoughts about Truffles. Love,

Guinea pigs are so nice to have because their temperment is mellow. They are not demanding at all. I just got two 5 month old boars who are brothers, one short hair cocoa color with tan markings and another abyssinian of the same color with some white markings. They are just getting used to their new home. The sweetest thing is how they love to purr!

Hi! I have one guinea pig named Muffy. I have had guinea pigs almost my whole life. At school I am known as Guinea girl. Muffy is a white crested guinea pig. I spoil her. She has a great personality so I am looking for a crested male to breed to her. I LOVE GUINEA PIGS!

I have had a guinea pig for about 2 years, and am getting another one next week. Guinea pigs are my favorite animal of all times, and my friends at school call me "the guinea pig girl". Also, if you are thinking about getting one, they are docile, loveable creatures who are great pets.

I think guinea pigs are so cute. My neighbours have 3 girls named Zoey, Tigger, and Daisy. I help take care of them. I am hoping to get a baby. I want a boy and a girl. I love your site.
