Dogs and cats are popular pets in the household but they may not be good options for those who have limited space in the house. Not to worry though, as small furry pets like guinea pigs are great alternatives for the space challenged. These adorable rodents are docile and friendly creatures. You don’t have to worry about them charging in your face when you get home from work, they will simply give you delighted squeaks while wiggling their noses to show their excitement on your arrival. Aside from food and companionship, proper grooming also keeps your guinea pig happy.
