View Full Version : Newbie to Guinea Pigs

06-02-10, 01:23 pm

My name is Pamala and I am a new owner of a 6-month old male guinea pig named Wilbur (or Gilbert, as my daughter calls him). I got him on Memorial Day from a woman on Freecycle. She said that her cats were terrorizing him and he needed a new home ASAP. He came with a cage, food, igloo, water bottle, hay, and chewing treats.

I know NOTHING about guinea pigs and am here to learn so that Wilbur can become acclimated to our family and we can provide him from a good life.

We also have a Boxer and a cat.
