One thought on “How Much Guinea Pig Cuteness Can You Take?

  1. Cute guinea pigs – unsafe habitat. Picture 2 shows a cage floor with perforations that are dangerous to guinea pigs. This is the most common cause of bumble foot, a painful disabling infection that is difficult to treat. Guinea pigs should never be housed on wire floors or any rough surfaces. Fleece or shredded paper bedding are appropriate for guinea pigs.
