A lovely little ball of fur. That’s what a guinea pig is. Despite their name, they are not actually pigs. Nor do they come from Guinea. They’re actually from the Andes, although our little lovelies were all born and raised in Bolton. Lots of people have guinea pigs as household pets and there is a good reason for this. They are curious, well mannered and fun, and they don’t take too much looking after. As long as you feed them and keep their cage clean they will be your NBFF (New Best Friend Forever). Not many people know this, but guinea pigs are really good swimmers!
