He has white fur and black eyes. He is a bit standoffish and squeamish but warms up to people. He's generally quiet unless he is excited. Loves sitting near people or on a chest. He doesn't bite often but will if he thinks food is around. When scared, he has been known to urinate on people but he mostly just freezes and shakes. He isn't a huge fan of physical contact but will sit still for the occasional nose touch or kiss. He can be around other guinea pigs. He grew up having a brother who died in 2019 and does best with other piggies. He loves watching tv and playing with toys despite being older. It does take him a bit to warm up to others but given time, he is a very loveable piggy. He loves burrowing and isn't comfortable drinking from a water bottle. He can be a picky eater so his diet is heavy with green veggies, like green leaf lettuce, celery, broccoli, parsley, and cilantro. If he doesn't like it, he won't eat it. He loves fruits like strawberries, grapes, and watermelon. Oranges are his favorite. He gets vitamin c tablets and usually doesn't like pellets. He is fed twice a day, once in the morning, once at night. He gets baths once a month. Obviously, he receives lots of love and given that I am disabled, he doesn't spend a lot of time alone. His cage has always been in the same room that I sleep so he's never far from me. I would prefer he go with someone who could keep him in a similar environment.
Sorry, NO. Please do not contact the owner and ask about shipping guinea pigs. It is NOT possible. Please look for guinea pigs LOCAL to you! That's what this site is for--helping you find a guinea pig close to home to adopt and love.
But I want THAT one!
Yes, that one is adorable and looks just like the one you must have for your very important reason or you will not be able to go on living. But, there are many more in your area that are just as wonderful. Perhaps they are not listed here, but they can be found. The piggy in need waiting for you near your own back yard might look a little different, but could melt your heart anyway!
