Fact of the Day: Swiss Guinea Pig

In Switzerland, if one wishes to have a guinea pig as a pet then they must have at least two of them. They are social animals, and having just one can prove harmful to their health.

  1. Good one Adam
    However make sure they are the same sex or you'll be soon opening
    up your own "Get Your Guinea Pig Here" shop. They are prolific breeders.
    Little sex maniacs ha ha.

  5. how very thoughtful of them! That is my rule with cats too... whenever someone wanted to bring me one, I asked for two... sadly, my tomcats brother Arsenie died when they were kids, so Ignatius is a lonesome cat and I don't like it
