Companionship• Guinea pigs are social animals who enjoy the company of other animals of the same type. You will notice the range of squeaks and purrs they make.
• You should try to keep 2 guinea pigs as this tends to make them happier, calmer and healthier.
• Keeping two guinea pigs rather than one is not much more trouble either financially or in terms of work.
• Guinea pigs should not be kept with rabbits incase of injury and due to the different dietary requirements and inability to communicate with each other.
• If you have male guinea pigs this website www.barmy4boars.co.uk is a good resource about companionship- which is a little more complicated in the case of the male.
