    I know this is a late comment but asking around pet stores may help. There were none when I went to my local pet store but when we asked we were told that there would be two brothers coming in the next day.

    Guinea pigs are very social creatures that actually like and need companionship. However, introducing two guinea pigs that don't know each other can cause some problems of dominance. It's best to keep them separated but close to each other for about 2 weeks, so they can see and smell each other. Then put them together in a neutral area for a little while, like a bath tube or a small room, for a few days. Add some veggies to keep them occupied as they get used to sharing space. This usually gets them over the hump of 'new guy in my space' problem. Then try putting them together in cage with their own territories, like separate hides, and see if they get along. There are times when two pigs just simply won't get along and then will have to be kept in separate cages, but more often then not they will adapt.

    Guinea pigs are very social animals and like a companion. To get a better understanding of them see the social behaviors section on the Guinea Pig Care page.

Hey I want to get a teddy guinea pig. They are so adorable! But I worry it might get lonely. My mother said i could have 1 so what do i do to make it happy? Just play with it and let it run around under supervision for a while? I will do what ever it takes to make it happy healthy and comfortable. Could I get help with this?

    These are very social animals, herd types actually, and they really should have a companion. If they must be kept alone you will need to provide daily interaction and make sure it never goes for too long without attention. Even still, it may get depressed, so you'll have to keep an eye out for that. The best thing to do is ask you mother to let you get two... easier for you and much easier for the guinea pig.

    'Just play with her a lot and she will be very happy.Also,make sure you get all the stuff you need to make her feel like she's at home.remember,guinea pigs love to eat a lot so make sure you don't feed her too much.And when they wan't to take naps just let them be.Oh,and if your hand or finger smells like food,she will actually bite on you're finger or hand,but it doesn't hurt,only if you think it will.So,taking care of a guinea pig is easy,you just need the right stuff to.Now REMEMBER,guinea pigs are VERY delicate when they're babies,so if you let them jump from a high distance,they could probably die.So,when you go to sleep,MAKE SURE she is in the cage.'

    Well if u do, guinea pigs are suppose to b kept in pairs or more. They're very social animals and become depressed easily from loneliness. But if u r home and spend a majority of ur time with it I'd recommend a friend. Employees in pets stores may say its ok to keep one but most don't really know what they're talking about. And b sure to give them plenty of space. Food and hay and vedgitbles daily. . And guinea pigs can't store vitamin c so give them orange slices often and u can even buy drops to put in their water. And don't forget lots of love.

    The problem is not that cavies cannot store vitamin c, the problem is they can not produce it. If you feed them oranges, they can get sweet tooth preventing them from eating normal pellets feed them green bell peppers cut out the seeds

    Just plan on spending as much time as you possibly can with it when you are home! Why can't you have two? Could you get a rabbit instead? Rabbits and guinea pigs often make good companions!

    Well Shannon I have the same problem but I got an answer: play with your guinea pig and give your guinea pig something to play with while you take a break from your guinea pig, hope I helped :)
