My Guinea pigs have been my favorite pets to own besides horses. They are the best small indoor pet to own. Super friendly, very clean, and so much personality! I love accessorizing and customizing his cage and the fleece bedding option is awesome! It feels so clean and tidy compared to a hamster or bunny cage. My Guinea pigs also learned to use a litter box which made clean up super easy. Honestly, some days it felt like owning mini, furry horses. They are social creatures who need more than one to be happy and plenty of space as they love to run and explore! They "popcorn" when they are happy, which is super cute, and their little "wheek" is adorable and does not annoy me at all. If properly socialized, they make great kid-friendly pets, just watch your kids with them as they are fragile. They are nothing like hamsters either and should not be treated as such. Things such as exercise wheels and balls should not be used as their backs aren't meant to bend that way. They can really make your day after a hard work day and don't require you to be home to walk them. Make sure to include fresh veggies in their diet though to keep them healthy. I adore owning guinea pigs and will be owning more soon.
