Hey I have a 2x3 c&c cage I just built today and was looking for a pair of guinea pigs and this one adoption center I went to, said the female pigs had lice and were being treated so I wont be able to get them until then. I thought lice cant live on things for more then 48 hours so are you sure this isn't mites? Any help would be necessary and if so I could call them and ask them if its mites. I just want to get my piggies to my home as fast as possible. Their so little and cute.
