My bf's niece has a very cute black and gold guinea pig that she bought from a kid that wasnt nice to the poor little guy. The pigs name is Rodney naturally. Anyway she was trying tonight to get me to take him, only thing is i dont know much about them. They keep him in a little cage in the bathroom and feed it dogfood. And his nails are so long they are starting to curl under and he is very jumpy. He dont bite but jumps and makes the little chirpy noise if you touch him. How do you tell if they are male or female? I didnt see any testicals but then again i dont knwo what a pigs genitals looks like. I seriously thought about bringing him home and taking care of him but i am afraid i dont know enough about the things. My bf's niece begged me to take him, she said she knew i would be able to take better care of him then she could and spend time with him, but someone please give me some advice here, what do i need to know before i even consider this adventure? btw these ppl are not mean to animals or anything, they love animals but i fear they dont know how to properly take care of the poor guy, they have 4 goats, 3 cats (one special needs), a rabbit, 2 fish(which i maybe taking also) and 10 dogs.
