Hi there. I am a brand new guinea pig owner. Got my first one 3/20/13. Got my second one the very next day (technically my boyfriend's piggie, but he lives with me). It looked like my guinea was lonely, and he needed a friend as they are very social creatures. I have Popper and Punk in my family now and they are adorable! And and all guinea pig advice is welcome. I have never owned these little guys before, but I did have a hamster a while back.
