Hi everyone,
After a long hard search of the right Small pet for me I decided on a Guinea Pig for my family. In my area the main source of buying Most pets for people especially small pets is at our local Pet stores, which I will not buy from. So, after a lot of searching I found a breeder 1hour away from me.
We are bringing home a 3week old Guinea pig in 2 1/2-3 weeks.
He/She is just 2days old right now and I picked out him/her by pictures, which I will attach a picture of him/her in this thread. I am VERY excited.
He/She is coming with a starter Cage which is a 30" starter cage, I do plan to upgrade to something larger in a couple months, I love the C&C Cages and really thinking about making by myself instead of ordering one.

Anyway, I am very new, I have read the basics on what I need to buy for my Guinea pig and plan to start doing my shopping this week for him/her.
I am just getting one right now, As I feel I have enough time for him/her to be out of the cage to be happy.

Is there a certain Toy, or certain anything your piggie just CANT live without!?
I look forward to being an active member on this board and meeting you all.

Thanks for having me!

Aww...she/he is adorable. The best thing for my piggies is having a friend, they are just happier that way. So, if your able to I would get another one of the same sex from that litter.
