The Stuff of Everyday Life

 

Before you bring your guinea pig home, you'll need to have a few items on hand to make your new pet feel safe and comfortable when he arrives. These will include a cage, food bowls, water bottles with sipper tubes, some toys, bedding for the cage, and a grooming supplies.

 

You may also want to pick up a plastic or wooden house that will fit inside the cage as an additional retreat for him, or you may choose to use a small, clean cardboard box.

 

Guinea pigs appreciate having a quite place to go to "get away from it all" so they can rest or eliminate without being disturbed
