I know what you are talking about because I want to get a guinee pig. I will be ready anyhow! You got to learn more about them every day and night. Do you have a guinee pig? If you do what kind is it? Is it hard to take care of? Is it hard to give them a bath? Do you ever cut there nails alot? Are they just sleeping a the time? Do they make alot of noise? Can they BITE!
