    Hi...sorry two threads in one day...how greedy of me. But I am thinking of getting two guinea pigs and wanted to ask some questions that my researching isn't answering for me.

    1. The bacteria, Bordetella bronchiseptica, that rabbits carry...can they contract this from being kept in the same shed...not hutch...as a rabbit? What about from being outside? Also from being housed in a hutch in which a rabbit has been housed in previously?

    2. Is there a particular type of piggie that is better tempered?

    3. No 3rd question...but open to advice!

    Thanks! xx

    Have no idea about the first question but question 2- in my experince i have never heard of any breeds making better pets than others.
    Hope this helps a little bit :)
