A teacher has two guinea pigs he wants to give away and asked me if I wanted them. My last experience with a rodent was in my childhood when I had one sweet and one evil hamster and my fox terrier killed the sweet one. I know NOTHING about rodents. Like cage size, feeding requirements, would they need out of cage time, how stressed they would be in a home with 4 dogs 3 of which would love to eat them for dinner... I know I could keep them from becoming dinner, but if they need out of cage time and interaction, that gets trickier. Gentling techniques would be nice to know if I do get them. Iâ€™m not good with rodents, apparently they find me tasty and I donâ€™t like being bitten. Iâ€™m sure its my lack of knowledge, but would be nice to not get bitten... Oh, and how long do they live?
