One Guinea Pig or Two?

 

Unlike many other small animals that are kept as pets, guinea pigs are sociable animals, which means they are accustomed to being in groups.

 

Simply put: Guinea pigs make better pets if they have piggie pals arround. Since you will likely be away from home for long periods during the day (at school or at work), it may be best to have more than one pet guinea pig so the animals can keep each other company.


Keep males with males or females with females (or have your animals neutered), unless you want a lot of guinea pigs running around your home!
