Okay, I'm taking care of a friend's guinea pig for 2 weeks while she's away, and... I don't think it's going too well. I'm supposed to refill the water about once per day, and refill the food whenever it gets low. And clean out the cage early next week.
But, uhm, I got the guinea pig on Monday, and I haven't had to refill the food ONCE. I don't think she's eating. So, the stress of moving to a place might have traumatized her a bit? So, uhm, I seriously need some help.
a) How many days of not-eating until a guinea pig dies? I DON'T WANT THE GUINEA PIG TO DIE.
b) How could I calm her down and make her more relaxed and, uhm, Not in Danger Of Dying?
c) Well.. any general advice at all? Any? Please?
I'm so dead if this pet dies under my care. *worries*
