I purchased Eddie from a family who could no longer care for him early in December 2020. I wanted to provide my adolescent male with a companion. Eddie had been raised alone, was somewhat neglected, and needed some extra care for the first few weeks. I introduced him to my other guinea pig and they got along well for several weeks. However, I decided to separate them a few weeks ago due to my younger guinea pig constantly harassing him.
Despite his rough past, Eddie is very easy going, sweet, quiet, and loves to snuggle. He would most likely be good with other piggies as long as their personalities and/or ages wouldn’t clash. We think he is about 2 - 2 ½ years old.
He is used to getting about 1/8 - 1/4 cup of food a day, along with veggies and unlimited hay. He is still fairly picky with his veggies - I don't think he got any from his previous owners - but his favorites are carrots and lettuce. He is very bright and healthy-looking compared to when I adopted him.
There is a rehoming fee to be sure he will go to a good and loving home. He will come with 2 cups of the food I have him on and some hay. I am also currently using All Living Things kiln-dried pine chips which will be included depending on how much there is left when he is adopted. I have 2 hideout options available as well for a little extra charge.
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!
