I am wondering this because I really would like a Small Pet and I was thinking of Guinea Pigs but im really not too sure and would like too keep my options open. I make only 12.50 per week allowance. I am willing to save up my money for a while to be able to afford the pet but just please what do you think is best for my price range? preferrably something furry.
Guinea Pigs are AWESOME and so are hamsters. My kids have one of each. I do see a better benefit with having a guinea pig because it doesn’t escape like a hamster does. It snuggles and watches tv and can run around on the floor better… just because it is bigger.
The hamster likes to ride around in my daughter’s hoodie and is a great escape artist and chews through its cage all the time…
If you are limited on your space a hamster would be a better bet.
Either way they are both the same cost to take care of. Food, chips, chew toys, vet, nail clippers…. all the same.
