Is it OK for guinea pigs to wear sweaters?
Guinea pigs are susceptible to both extreme heat and cold. As we have mentioned that these little creatures should not wear clothes for a long period of time, making them wear sweaters or jumpers when it’s cold is not a good idea. They can wear such items of clothing only for a few minutes and not more than that.

A problem with letting a guinea pig have the run of your house or if you have them on your lap is that they do tend to pee and poop. Their poops are very small and solid but very easy to spot and their pee is in very small amounts so is very easy to clean. But whatever you do, don’t put a diaper on them.
