I got my husband some Guinea Pigs, which he named Jack after Big Boss and Rick after the hamster from kirby.
We just got these guys situated in a much bigger cage and they are so adorable and happy! They keep doing little popcorns all over the place, and if you don't know what popcorning is think about when you let a horse out into a large area and they jusp around, throw their heads, and even kick with excitment. Now take that and shrink it to guinea pig size.
Also, they are really neat to watch. It fullfills my need to have a fish tank because like fish, Guinea pigs are always doing something. Whether they are running around, playing with their toys or each other, eating, etc, it's just all so fun to watch. They certainly are cute little rodents.
I made them a big stuffed comfy bed and a big tunnel to run it. They seem to love them both!
