|Interstate adoption (WA only)|
Hi! I'm Gucci which means “cool” in both senses of the word! Living in The Pilbara in relentless heat means I am seeking a home where I can live indoors and stay cool!
I'm a young boy who had a home but life changes and I am currently enjoying my days with a foster family. So far, I've enjoyed a bath and hair cut. My hair can grow quite long so finding a human who enjoys a little hairdressing and pampering will help maintain my looks and my locks.
I love a cuddle and am gentle with small children, but give me a chance to run and I'll hide in my house and hay but that’s what us guinea pigs do!
Just like all guinea pigs I love to bury myself under leaves and vegetation. I love tunnels too. I eat a variety of foods - I’m still trying to decide on my favourites but fresh greens every day are a must. We need to be fed twice a day and our diet also includes hay, pellets and washed fruit and veges.
We’re a bit more heat tolerant than rabbits. At the moment, in the heat of the Pilbara, I go into a safe outdoor cage in the late afternoons with leaves to play and burrow in. During the day I am inside the house where it's cooler.
What else will I need to be happy? A gnawing block, a brush once or twice a week, fresh water in a metal spouted drip bottle and my own sleeping area - with a cover on top. Guinea pigs need their home cleaned every day and their bedding changed every week. We can live for up to ten years. And we make great pets for gentle children.
I CAN FLY TO PERTH!
Flying for a few hours is very important for animals in remote locations because it gives us the opportunity to be adopted. Talk to SAFE about flying me to you in Perth.
