Sure! I have a hamster & it could also be mean by biting you. The same thing for guinea pigs, too.
Just keep a bowl of store bought guinea pig food in your guinea pig's cage and if it gets hungry it can eat out of that. And also you can feed your guinea pig fruits and veggies every now and then. I do the same with my guinea pig, but she seems to have a problem with eating fruits and veggies. :(

It depends on what guinea pig is listening to the music, and what kind of music. If it is a baby guinea pig, then it will probably stop momentarily, and then keep on going. If it is an old guinea pig that has heard music before, he will prbably not care.

Don't be aggressive with him/her either, because then they will be scared and defensive. i hope that this will help you!
My guinea pig always falls over when I brush her so I may be brushing her to hard or she has something wrong with one of legs.somtimes your guinea pig could have a ear infection and may fall over because of that if somthing is wrong or if your guinea pig will not stand up please take it to the vet as fast as you can and keep your guinea pig warm
if they are drawing blood, biting, scratching, hurting each other you need to separate them in different cages. Each guinea pig needs 7 square feet of room. 2 pigs need 8 square feet.
If you are talking about an outdoor storage building then ABSOLUELY NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guinea pigs need to be in cages indoors. If you can absolutely not keep your pig indoors, get a pen but keep it in the shade. If you have room in your house, try your best to keep the piggie indoors.

I personally think it is cruel to keep a guinea pig inside. It will be very frightend of the habitat and may even die of heart attack. Guinea pigs are meant to be outside, they were when they were wild. They can also get fresh air and look at the outdoors rather than a bland room. And my guinea pig lives in a 2 storie hutch outside and he is very healthy. I don't like… Read More
