Guinea Pig Insurance

I have a pet guinea pig and although Guiness the guinea pig is in good health, he is nearly 5 years old so I am considering getting some guinea pig pet insurance.

My guinea pig is called Guiness. He was a gift from my dear friend Betty and I have now had him for nearly two years. I called him guiness not because of his colouring but because Guiness sounds abit like guinea!

He is quite a shy guinea pig (not that you can tell this from these photographs!), although he will squeak as you walk past his cage when he wants something. Guiness often calls out when he wants some fresh vegetables. His favourites are carrot, cucumber, lettuce, courgette, banana skins, strawberries and apple. If his water container is getting low then he will also call out. He is a clever guinea pig.

My nephew has adopted Guiness as a birthday gift, so although Guiness still lives on the farm my nephew can tell his friends that he has a guinea pig. When he comes to visit he feeds Guiness and sometimes helps me to clean him out, which I think is great and so does my nephew and Guiness!
