Does your Guinea Pig need a friend? Well, so does Pumpkin! (MSPCA photo)

Meet Pumpkin!  This friendly but nervous fellow needs a little while to get you know you.  Pumpkin lived with a cat in his previous home, so should do fine in a family with a feline buddy.  Due to his nervous personality a calm, quiet home is recommended to keep him stress free.  Guinea pigs are extremely social animals and can easily become depressed, therefore he should go to a home with another male guinea pig.  For a nice slow introduction two enclosures will be temporarily needed.
