    Behavior Guinea Pig right for me?

    I'm looking for a cuddly companion, or more like an animal that would enjoy sitting in my lap and letting me pet him/her. I can't get a dog/cat.

    Cage How many piggies in 2'x2' cage?

    I figured four piggies was way too many in that space, but since a newbie thought I'd ask. This may sound dumb, but what are the dimensions of a 2x3 c&c cage? I'll pass on the breeder, and look at the rescues. I'm located in Houston, if there are any suggestions?

    Cage How many piggies in 2'x2' cage?

    I know cage size via square feet, but that's gibberish to me. Would I be able to house any piggies in a 2'x2' c&c? I talked to a breeder close by and she said it would be perfect for four piggies. I'd get your thoughts/opinions too. Thank you.
