Guinea pigs absolutely rock. I have had a total of two guinea pigs. The first one died at age five and now I have one named Crest. He is such a loveable, sweet animal that is always ready for some attention. He is someone or something that I can talk to. Guinea pigs are seriously the best.

My Ginny doesnt have a dramatic rescue story or an amazing future or past. She is just your common pet guinea pig, or so she seems to those who dont look closely enough. Her personality is different than that of which the vet described to me. He said that guinea pigs (or cavies) tend to live a blobby and cute existance, but he never said how they seem to know exactly how much cuddling you need and just the right way to make you laugh with their silly antics. Once when my dog ate several chocolate chip cookies, I was afraid she was going to die and ran away to my room to wallow in my misery. Then Ginny squealed at me until I took her out and cuddled and ran around until I was laughing hysterically. Guinea pigs will ultimately change your life, even if some people say they are dumb animals (not me!!!).

hi. i got 2 guinea pigs from a girl i know. she said that they were both girls. soon after i had returned from my 1 day vacation there were four. we figured out which one was the boy and seperated them from the rest, but it was too late. 9 weeks later, after the others had found homes, there were 5 more babies. 2 of which were tiny so we had to hand raise them. they have homes now but we still keep in touch.
