What you need to know about Guinea Pigs

Gumbo is 1 of 4 boys signed over to the RSPCA on welfare grounds after several sexing mistakes produced far too many to cope with.

Having come from a place with so many guinea pigs, these boys are understandably very skittish and not used to one to one attention. So you will need lots of time and perseverance to help encourage them to be more relaxed boys. As these young men all become sexually mature they have begun to bicker a bit and as they have now all been castrated we will be looking for female companions to share their new lives with.

Gumbo is currently living outdoors, he has always been an outdoor guinea pig, but may adapt to life inside if given a quiet space to get used to. Gumbo would not be suitable as a pet for a young child as he so nervous.
