Nolan - the calm one

So out of the three guinea pigs I have ever owned, Nolan was the quickest to adjust to new situations and people. He was extremely trusting of people and didn't throw a huge fit when he was being handled. If you read my other post about Abner then you know that I think where you get your pet from is very important.

Nolan came from a friend of mine after her guinea pig has babies. Therefore he was always treated well unlike most guinea pigs coming from pet stores. This made him a much easier pet to handle. As long as he was given his time to explore every day and got fed, he was honestly the calmest pet I have ever had. Going along with this, he was a very lovable pet and was happy to interact with you, even if you were not paying him any mind.

I would say, keep guinea pigs away from dogs and cats. That was the only time that Nolan became very upset and I think a bad experience with predators can be very traumatizing for the prey. Other than that, my American Guinea Pig was an incredible pet who I enjoyed very much.
