Chusca and Wombat have been with me for close to a year and I absolute adore them! Wombat is 2 years old. I chose him because I thought that most people would pick a younger guinea pig. Chusca is a 1 year and 4 months. He was only a baby when I adopted him.
My guinea pigs tips are:
- Make sure that you spend time with them whenever you can. Guinea pigs are very sociable and affectionate animals, but if you don’t give them attention for a while they begin to become shy.
- Find treats they like. Chusca and Wombat love to eat fruits and veggies -- their favourites are apples and kale.
- I trained them to know when they are getting treats by clicking my tongue. Its a great way to reward them.
Thank you, Iris, for adopting Wombat and Chusca and sharing their adorable pictures and your best guinea pig tips with me!
