Rodents are very common pets. There are a wide variety of species that people enjoy keeping, from little mice to guinea pigs and chinchillas. Here is a list of some useful articles all about rodents (working on my list right now 😉 ):

I’d suggest starting with my Small Rodents as Pets article to give you an understanding of caring for the smaller species.

I’d like to share a few products that I think are helpful with these little furry guys. If you’d like to keep your pet’s nails clipped, I recommend these very Things for their cage set up I will put in this paragraph. Examples of good hiding houses for guinea pigs or rats are ” data-wplink-url-error=”true”>this. These are wooden and are safe to chew, but also cozy and will make them feel safe. ” data-wplink-url-error=”true”>Aspen Bedding are great choices to combine for their cages to stay cleaner and not smell as bad. And the ” data-wplink-url-error=”true”>Guinea Pig Habitat for a single guinea pig or doubled up for a pair.
