Guinea pigs make adorable pets. Not only are they cute, but their meek, docile nature can also make everyone, grown-ups and children alike, want to pet them, protect them and help them feel that all is right with the world. It can be a wonderful feeling to have pets that look to you to be kept safe. These are inexpensive, sweet-tempered pets that ask for nothing more than a little love. Here are a few more reasons why guinea pigs make wonderful pets.
1. Guinea pigs are inexpensive pets
Guinea pigs are typically either free to adopt or cost little at pet stores. If you buy your cavy, you may need to pay a little extra for one of the rarer breeds. Guinea pigs don’t all need to look the same, either. You get to choose by body weight, length of fur, and color.
