A message from the RSPCA regarding small animal adoption:

Buying a pet rabbit, guinea pig, ferret, bird, rat or mouse means that you are prepared to take on a serious daily commitment to care for the animal for a number of years.

Children can learn about caring for others, the responsibilities involved in having a pet in the household, and the unconditional love that a pet will give. Parents, however, must at all times guide children in their choice of a pet and the husbandry of the animal, and be prepared to supervise the day-to-day care so the animal’s needs are met. See the RSPCA Australia knowledgebase for general care and feeding information.

Guinea pigs are interesting and fun little characters. Given the right facilities, they are easy to care for and with good handling, they can become quite tame and will enjoy sitting with you for some companionship. Because they are social animals, it is necessary that more than one pet guinea pig be kept for companionship.

  1. I have a friend who breeds them. he has hundreds. every so often he kills of 20 or 30 and takes them to the local butcher. Apparently they are quite tasty.
