Does anyone know how long a guinea pig's memory is? Would it be long enough to remember another guinea pig who went away for a week because of an operation? :o

My piggies are indoors from sept to april but the minute they go back out in the spring they remember the way out onto the grass a nd the bank of ground elder straight away ,and it means finding their way through two little gates..a distance of about 6 metres.They also remember the way back pretty quickly at dinnertime,one whistle from me and they all come rushing back following one another like sheep-so funny.

I'm pretty sure they have quite a good long term memory. I would have thought they would remember an old cage mate, but then you never know. I'm pretty sure my girls remember the 2 I'm looking after now from last year as they didn't like them then and still don't now, but they have been fine with other pigs they've been introduced too :{
