Chester, was housed alone in his former situation. Guinea pigs are social animals and do best in pairs, but friendship between two guinea pigs used to living alone is never a guarantee.
We were hopeful that Chester would appreciate the company of one of our rescues, a guinea pig named Elliot.
Thankfully, both piggies were friendly to each other and are able to be housed together.
They are now thriving, more outgoing and enjoying company to share life with.
