Thomas arrived in our care through no fault of his own and is now looking for a forever home, with a friend to keep him company.
Thomas has been very nervous since his arrival and although he has now settled in to a loving foster home, he is still very shy and prefers not to be handled, choosing to move away and hide if they can. Due to this they are now looking for some very understanding humans who are happy to take a hands-off approach with him initially, and offer him the time and space he needs to build his confidence. He would benefit from the companionship of another gentle and friendly Guinea pig (male or female) who is more confident with human interaction.
After some gentle interactions with his foster carer, Thomas will approach and accept food or treats from their hand, so this will help him to build trust with his adopters over time. His favourite treats are carrot and mint – which he will eat in abundance!
Thomas likes to sit on top of his hides to watch the world go by. Due to his nervous nature, he would benefit from a large accommodation, so that him and his companion have plenty of room to share or have space when needed. He would be best suited to a calm home with older children, who are happy not to handle them.
If you think you can give Thomas a new lease of life, and show him that humans aren’t so scary, let us know by completing a perfect match form below.
Please note that any adopters would need to have appropriate measures in place to allow a bonding process to take place, and be happy to introduce Thomas to his new friend slowly.
