A Girl and Her Guinea Pig

Growing up in my home we always had hampsters .

And no matter what someone kicked the hell out of the round ball they ran mock 90 around the house in. Until eventually there were so many terds in the ball it sound like someone was shaking a maraca.. We also had a woodstove in the basement so the door going down the stairs was open a lot , many times they took a six flags ride down.   Sometimes we were lucky, my Mom & Dad would allow us to get two of the crazy corner pissing, wheel racing, tube running fur balls.   We even had babies 😳.   That ended our hampster craze.

Now today in my home my daughter has her Guinea Pig.   Meet Fiona!

She is about 2yrs old and the best pet any family could ask for.    She is truly Emily’s best friend.    Over a hour can go bye and she will play with her.     Sometimes doing strange things as you can see

Emily insists on sharing every toy with Fiona.    

    The smallest crinkle of a noise and Fiona will start whistling at you demanding hay.  She will run directly to the door greeting you and getting huge dog kisses from Gizmo🐶😘.  Yes they even love each other.    



I have found that putting children around animals that show love and communication like a Guinea Pig perfect pet match and truly provides a little pet therapy.   Fresh veggies everyday and a given responsibility to our toddler that she loves doing.   

Seeing Fiona sleep so relaxed in her cage while I’m walking around Emily’s room cleaning it proves to me that she is comfortable and feels safe.

Her singing will put a smile on anyone’s face.   And her attention craving personality draws you in.  

So maybe next time your wondering if a cat or a dog is good first pet for your little one you may want to consider why Guinea Pigs make great pets!
