Guinnie pigs are very easy to take care of but you should have 2 becasue the other will get lonely by its self i have 2 guinnie pig and they are very easy to handle all u do is get them a propper box lay down news papper then put not to much saw dust on them hay so they can hide under it and for food u give them carrots and lattuce and for treats calery and make sure they get to run around every day so put some bricks in a circuls then let them run around in that and be careful if u have a cat always watch them when they are playing around because the cat can easily eat the little ones. i hope this answers your question from Emily

HI! I just got two of them and I love them. They are a little noisy but only once in a while, mostly when they are nervous or something is wrong. I have two so they arent alone while I'm at work, and they squeel a bit when they arent together. Also, as long as you keep the cedar chips in thier cage free of spilt water, food and poop they don't stink either. The only thing is is when they are young they need a decent ammount of attention, because they need to get to know you. At first they are really skiddish when people try to hold them so dont be surprized if they pee, but that will go away when they get more used to their cage, your house (and its people and noises) and you. but they are defenetly low matenence as long as you have a good chunk of time each day (Or a little bit here and there) to "get to know them". Also if you dont want babies get to girls. They are a bit sweeter. They dont bite, they knibble and thats because they need something solid to grind their teeth on, cuz when they cant thier teeth hurt, and eventully they will grow too large to open their mouth, like a birds beak, they grow all the time so they have to keep them short in a sence. Hope I could help.

I am watching a gunnie pig and when I pet it under it's chin it makes a grunting sound. What does that mean?

They are really nice, before you buy one you should check its hair first... when i went to get mine it had lice.. i had to get it from another store without bugs (YUCK).. anyway.. before you buy one see if you can hold him.. pet his face and mouth to see if he is mean.play with him and do that kind of stuff. Babys like to nibble but they dont hurt.. hope I helped

they are fairly easy to care for but their cage needs to be cleaned regularly and they need daily care as wood a cat or dog. If you don't take the time when they are little to allow then to get use to you then they're not very friendly with they human keepers.
