I adopted 2 elderly guinea pigs over 2 weeks ago . The process was very smooth once contact had been made of my interest . The kind fosterer had told me that in the four weeks she had fostered them they took food from her hands . That same day they arrived they could be hand fed and now I feed them on my lap and they fall asleep for ten minutes . I spend time socialising with them everyday so they gain trust and look forward to spending time outdoors in the warmer weather with them . Please consider giving older guinea pigs a forever home as their personalities are delightful as youngsters given time and patience to get used to you .
