The baby guinea pigs are so cute!! I want to have them. I especially love the chestnut one. I used to have a black guinea pig named Berney. He only had one eye and was very special to me.





Love Brianna

Hi, I have 20 guinea pigs so far and some still pregnant. I love to look after them but when they start fighting it is a bit of a hassel. I have 11 boys which includes four babies, and i have 9 girls which includes three babies. I also have other pets such as cats, rabbits, hermit crabs, and fish. Surprisingly they all get along well, the rabbits even chase the cats around the garden for fun! I CANT IMAGINE LIVING WITHOUT PETS!

Guinea pigs are the best pets you could ever have! I have 4 guinea pigs and one hamster. My female just gave birth to two spunky piglets. They are the cutest and they look exactly like their dad.

Well I'm 12 years old and I have been looking for a pet that is cuddly yet fun for monthes. Puppies weren't for me because after they were grown I seemed to loose interest in them. I have a cat which recently had two kittens but cats aren't fun once they get older. We do have one dog-he is a Chow an the best dog ever but hes not what I would call my dream pet. My mom says that I am responsible and that she can trust me with a pet so i decided on a Guinea Pig. I want a long haired one but I understand that I would have to clean his/her rear and make sure to keep his/her hair brushed-maybe if its a girl i can even add bows like they do on babies an dogs! I wouldn't want to hurt my baby though. I just need to make sure that a guinea pig is perfect for me. Thank you very much.

Wallie is my guinea pig. He would not hurt a fly, he is so cute and cuddley. My guinea pig knows the word 'food'. His best friend is Daisy, my rabbit. They love each other like they are brothers.

So far I have had 2 guinea pigs. They were mother and daughter. Sadly the mother died, but sometime this week we will be getting another young (baby) guinea pig to keep our other one company. I would definitely recommend getting a guinea pig. Thay are really easy to feed and they don't take up much space. I would definitely pick guinea pigs over hamsters. And believe me, I know hamsters. At one point I had 10 hamsters at the same time. Guinea pigs are wonderful pets. They are very cuddly and VERY interactive. If you are thinking of getting a guinea pig I suggest that you get 2. They are very social animals. NEVER have 1 female and 2 males. The males will most likely end up fighting (sometimes to death) over who will get the female. Enjoy you piggy!
