Hey everyone.
So aylas special buy from our tax return was a pet guinea pig. She wanted a kitten but we can't have pets except caged animals, and I didn't want a bunny so she picked a guinea pig.

We got him on Friday, he is healthy and clean.

But he is still simply hiding under his climber, not coming out, not eating that I can see or drinking. We pick him up and hold him every day for a little bit, we stay quiet so we don't scare him. He is still scared when being held, but he will look around.

What can we do to help him aclimate better?
