Guinea Pigs - what's not to love about them? They are adorable, full of personality, quiet, and don't require training or a big backyard. They are perfect mid-long term pets who make great indoor pets for families with kids ages 8 and up. These little critters are quite skittish so they thrive in a quiet environment away from predators and the weather. They love when their owners handle them daily and do so carefully, making them feel calma and safe. Guinea Pigs tend to learn the household routine and learn to enjoy that time of the day when vegetables come out! As herbivores, they are constantly nibbling away at food which can make their enclosures messy, so if you adopt a cavy be sure to prepare for lots of cleaning!
