I can't have a pet at the moment (money issues) but would like to discuss what per I would like to have if I could. I currently have 2 fish tanks, one has a beta and the other has several gold fishes. But I want something that my kids could interact with. I don't really like cats due to issues with cat litter boxes. A dog sounds great, but I don't know.
So, I was thinking maybe a cute Guinea Pig could fit the bill. They are small so it won't cost a fortune to maintain. I can put him in his tank/cage/house when I'm tired of him and I can let him loose around the house when I wanna play with him.
Any Guinea Pig owner has some insight as per how good pets they can be?
PS: Mods, can someone change thread title to "Guinea Pigs as Pets?" please
