Guinea Pigs

Laya and Jimmy were rehomed from the RSPCA in Medway. They are estimated to be between 1 and a half and 3 years old and were put up for adoption because a fox was pestering them in the garden.

Our Laya and Jimmy can be cautious and will often run under their hutch when approached.  They are inquisitive though and you will hear them when you rustle a packet!

Both Guinea Pigs have a great appetite and will quickly finish off their food, they love herbs, hay and spinach. They're favorite is sunflower seeds from your hand and guinea pig treats from the pet shop.

Together, they enjoy spending time in their outside run and hiding in their play tunnels.

Guinea Pigs originate from South America and can be traced back as far as 5000BC where they were used as a source of food. They then went on to play a role in the development of medicines and are believed to be a cure for numerous illnesses including arthritis and jaundice; these would be treated by rubbing the guinea pig over the affected area.
