Rescue Group: Wheek Care Guinea Pig Rescue
Rex is a carmel and white American boy approximately 8 months old. Rex was originally paired with a baby; and divided from his side of the cage was Scotty. Rex kept finding a way to get to the other side where Scotty was and I would find them sharing an igloo. They decided they wanted to be friends, and I just gave in. I tell people that the pigs usually pick their people, but it seems they also pick their friends. These boys formed an instant friendship and must be adopted together. They are used to dogs, cats and kids and would make a wonderful forever friend for any family.
Guinea pigs are social animals, and should always have a friend of their own kind. These wonderful little creatures live an average of 5 to 7 years, and I've even had them live up till they were 9 and 10 1/2. Children under the age of 12 should always be supervised by an adult when holding guinea pigs. They are also vegetarians. Among their favoriite veggies are Romaine, Parsley, Green leaf/Red leaf lettuce, Endive, Collard Greens, Kale, Tomatoes, Carrots (in moderation) and Green/Red/Yellow or Orange peppers, just to name a few.
