Do guinea pigs need a house in their cage? 

Are you about to welcome guinea pigs into your life and are wondering how to create the perfect habitat for them? How exciting!

So, do guinea pigs need a house in their cage?

Yes, absolutely. Guinea pigs require a place to hide in their cage. In the wild, guinea pigs are the prey of many predators. It’s their survival instincts to shield from potential dangers. Guinea pigs will spend most of their time resting in their shelter when they are not out eating and drinking. Adding a house such as our fleece hidey in their cage is a way to make them feel safe and comfortable. If you have several guinea pigs, make sure to pick a home that is big enough for them all, or add several shelters and watch your guinea pigs happily walk from one to the next. Another way to create a safe space is to use corner hammocks or corner curtains.

In conclusion, make sure to offer, at all times, a place to hide to your guinea pigs. Being able to hide is extremely important to guinea pigs, as it reduces their amount of stress and makes them feel safe and happy in their new home.
