What Do Guinea Pigs Like?

Caresses

Each pig has its own preferences… the majority likes to be petted behind the ears(they have bare skin there), some on the nose, other on the back, the head or the chin. They don’t like touching the tummy and it is better not to touch their paws. 

Food

They love juicy food (fresh vegetables and fruits), but they shouldn’t eat too much of it. Some pigs love milk – however, remember that adult mammals should not drink milk. Some pigs like tea with lemon and sugar (unfortunately)what is also forbidden, although you can give your pig a little bit of tea from time to time. Dill is one of the most favourite guinea pig treats. I haven’t met a piggy, which doesn’t love it.

Other Entertainments 

Guinea pigs enjoy walking around the flat. Their curiosity about world will lead them everywhere, also into places rather dangerous for them. Touring the space under the bathtub or corners behind wardrobes is highly inadvisable. A smart piggywhich is able to leave the cage on its own, will find “its places” at home. When a piggy hides there, it’s almost impossible to find it. Your pig will come out when it wants to. 

You can also make a paddock outside – use a metal fence and remember to cover the top of it (rodents are food for many birds). The paddock must be really reliable. If it is made from a string, the piggy may bite it through and go for a walk.
