my guinea pig Ratsky will run thru the house, popcorning all over the place, and when I go to approach, will playfully scamper away, so I try a different angle, and he zips off the other way. When I show any lapse in movement, he will come towards me, almost egging me on to play some more. When I wake in the morning, he will squeak and chirp very loudly until I open his cage and show him some affection, then he'll purr whilst I pet him.

Sounds cute! My oldest daughter wants a guinea pig. We need to learn some things about them first though.

well, they are a low maintenance pet, needing a change of litter once aweek , fresh water at all times, and things to chew, because like rabbits, their teeth grow continually. mine will eat almost anything, including strawberries, apples, celery, squash, etc. Mostly though, he eats pellets, and fresh hay . They don't care for loud noises, or any zaniness, so we have a small plastic igloo which Ratsky will hide under, for a little privacy
