THINKING OF BUYING A PET?
Pets can be excellent companions to adults and children alike. They can teach children the responsibilities of looking after and loving a living animal, and teach them the many skills required to properly care for pets.
Pets can also be noisy, expensive and take a lot of time and effort to exercise and care for. Special consideration should be given to many questions before taking on what is a long term commitment - sometimes a lifetime or intergenerational commitment (Some parrots live to 70 years and some tortoise live to 150 years).
GARY AND JULIE STONGLY ADVISE THAT YOU CONSIDER THE SERIES OF QUESTIONS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE (CLICK HERE), BEFORE BUYING ANY PET.

Guinea pigs are cheap to buy and easy to keep. They are quiet, clean and very sociable animals. It is better to keep more than one guinea pig but two males kept together will fight, and if you are thinking of keeping a male and female guinea pig together, it is best to get the male guinea pig neutered to avoid lots of babies! They live for 4-8 years, and can reach sexual maturity from 9 weeks old with males, and from as young as a month with females. The female has between one and six babies each time.
Has your cat, hamster, guinea pig, mouse or other pet provided you with an unwanted litter? Please do not abandon them - Julie's Pets may be able to buy them from you, take them off your hands or advise you on the best way of finding them a new home
