How cute! I love it when I see pictures of all different kinds of furbabies getting along so well together. :loveeyes:

Please don't let your guinea pigs eat cat snacks. Piggies are vegan. They aren't built for that.
My cats like to hang out with my guinea pigs, too. I try to get them to stop eating their hay. Sometimes they only poop the hay partway out, and I have to tug the long strand right out of the kitty butt.

Thanks for telling me. I was told that they can have dog treats and stuff like that. Lol that is funny about your cats! My cats wouldn't dream of eating hay!

Dog and cat treats / food don't have vitamin C which is essential in a guinea pig's diet just like taurine is essential in a cat's diet. Feed your guinea pig only guinea pig specific food and treats.

I'd love to have a guinea pig but I'm not sure how the cats would react:think:
