Guinea Pigs make Great Pets for Kids
Guinea Pigs are ideal pets for children aged 3–10 years. They are fairly easy to care for, they enjoy a cuddle, and love playing.
Their basic diet can be bought from the pet supplier, although fresh dark green leaves daily keeps them in top condition. Tooth brushes are ideal for grooming.
Wire mesh cages with 1/3 covered in for shelter make ideal homes for guinea pigs. Keep the cage in a quiet corner of the yard, sheltered from direct sunlight or drafts. Clean water and fresh bedding daily is advised and moving their home to a fresh section of grass at least once per week will keep your pets very happy. Weekly scrubbing out their feeding and sleeping area with soapy water is strongly recommended.
