It makes a big difference doesn't it. When I first started renting (14 years ago, blimey!) I had a hamster and two gerbils, but after they died I was in a succession of places that didn't allow pets. Now I'm in my own house I took the plunge last September and adopted some guinea pigs; knowing I have to look after them makes me more disciplined and less self-oriented. It's also nice that there are other living creatures in the house instead of just me!The boys are quite settled in nicely
My house feels more positive now theres pigs in it
Welcome to the forumLicking is nothing to be worried about.
Licking is simply just a sign of love.
Another reason why your guinea pig(s) are licking your hands is because there is salt on your hand (from sweat). It's totally normal that guinea pigs lick your hands.
