I was trying to figure out what kind of breed my guinea pig was. I looked online and found the description of a silkie guinea pig, so I searched for a picture, and when I saw this one I did a double take, as I thought it was my piggy in the picture. They look exactly alike. I absolutely love guinea pigs and my one makes me laugh so much as she is so dopey. She loves to climb up to my neck and hide in my hair and also loves lying on her back for some reason! She's a happy little sausage, but doesn't take too kindly to her mate (a rosette) trying to be the dominant one of the pair.

Sheltie guinea pigs are sooo cute - I have 3 shelties
they're not that hard to look after as long as you regularly cut and brush their hair.
I also have a guinea pig with a rosette.
Guinea pigs are amazing pets.

What is the average life span for a fancy rat and is it differant than a hairless rat? What is all this talk about blue rats having something wrong with them? Is it true and if so, what is it that is differant than a normal colored fancy rat? Also, can rats have tomatoes? onions? Why can female rats only have oranges and not limes or lemons? What if your rat likes the taste of limes and lemons? Then what, is it just the taste or is there actually something bad for them?
What is the average weight for female guinea pigs in pounds or ounces? Are there any types of food that are bad for them that you don't usually hear of? My one female had a cyst, we went to the vet and they took care of it, but it seems to be coming back. Is there any food that I should or shouldn't be giving her?
Thanks for your help and advice.
