The Guinea Pig's Activy Cycle

 

Fortunately for owners, guinea pigs are on a diurnal schedule. This means they are awake when we are awake, and they sleep when we sleep. They eat at about the same times that we do, although guinea pigs will often snack throughout the day instead of eating formal meals.

 

Try to set up a routine for your pet so he will know when to expect meals and out of cage time. This schedule doesn't have to be set in stone, but certain activities like feeding should occur around the same time each day. Setting a schedule ensures that your pet receives the daily care he needs, along with some fun time for both of you
