I have a guinea pig which due to increased travel am unable to look after any more. I would like him to go to a new home where he can be better loved and looked after. I do not want any money, just to know he is going to the right people.

I'm thinking of getting a pet. Are guinea pigs difficult to look after? Do they need a lot of attention? Are they aggressive?

They aren't hard to look after, certainly need attention but less so than most of other pets. I once put a finger in my guinea pig's mouth, so she bit me. ;) Otherwise, they are not usually agressive. Speaking from experience here.

In 2 years the only time he bit me was when i had been handling carrots and stuck my finger in the cage. Even then he didn't draw blood. The more attention you give them, the more they respond.

Guinea pigs are great, I used to have three. They're pretty smart, too - they could recognise the sound of the fridge opening, and would get all excited thinking they'd get fed. :)

For the cage, don't use wood chips - hay or straw is better. They love to munch on dandelion leaves and spinach, but don't give too much since it can cause kidney problems.

Cute little things - if I didn't already have 3 cats, I'd be tempted to take this little guy, but I don't think he'd have a very pleasant time of it...

Many thanks for everyone's help. I have now found a good home for him
