    First thing first, get him a little house so he can feel safe and also a bed would be a nice idea. Don't forget to give him vegetables/fruits every day and fresh water, but some of the vegetables and fruits will be harmful for him so Google that to be sure. They need love and time to play everyday. That's the basic stuff if you have any question let me know but if I were you I could buy a book or just do a research on the internet!

    Also, he needs unlimited access to hay. It keeps their molars worn down and it keeps their gut moving which is essential for guinea pig health.
