  • Yep, we have three of them. As if you could not tell by my picture that I love guinea pigs. Naturally the responsibility for the feeding and cleaning out the cage rests on my husband and I, but my 4 year old fills their food bowls and gives them their Timothy Hay. She was a little iffy around them at first, but now she is very good around them. Even my 2 year old is pretty good with them. It takes a little while to get them all used to each other but it's cute to see them stretch out and relax on my daughter when she pets them.
