Hamster, Gerbil or Guinea Pig?

I used to love hamsters and gerbils.

But now I need more of a challenge, something a little bigger, you know? Wink

I'm thinking of picking up a guinea pig tomorrow at PJ's Pet Store.  Any suggestions on appropriate 'care'? Grin

The best thing about guinea pigs is that they're really fun to play around with.The disadvantages is the responsibility that comes along with it. You have to clean it's cage, play with it, and feed it.Guinea pigs can be great pets if you take the time to give them attention regularly.

 SmileyGuinea pigs are great!!! They do need more attention than hamsters and more care than hamsters. Also you spend more money on them than you do with hamsters. Each Guinea pig has their own personality like our first Guinea pig, Cutie, was very nice quite and clam but our current Guinea pig, Rooney, is very sweet, noisy when you hold him (that's the way he communicates  with us), and he is not that clam.
   If you give them lots of tender love and care (TLC) than they with love you back. They love attention and being petted. If you are going to leave him/her alone for along time every day I would think of getting two but when I go to school I leave Rooney alone for around 7 hours and he's fine. Guinea pigs like some alone time too. Guinea pigs are quite at night but they don't sleep all night. When he is up at night I can't even hear him. Tey don't wake you up in the morning too. They take around 30 naps a day. Having a Guinea pig is very rewarding if you take good care of him/her. I would say you should get a Guinea pig. Grin
