I am sorry to hear that your guinea pig will not let you pet it. It just might be a little scared. I would continue to pet the guinea pig and be gentle when you handle it.

That is the kind of animals they are.

If you want a pet that will let you pet it, get a dog or cat.

You are so wrong. Once the guniea pig builds up a little trust it will let it's owner pet and hold it whenever. You apparently have never owned one so don't answer questions you know nothing about!

It's normal for starters. But later, if you feed them by hand, they will not be so afraid and you can pet them for a short while.

Well, I see you asked why your guinea pig is throwing up. S/he probably doesn't want to be touched if s/he doesn't feel well.

I've had 3 guniea pigs before and once they build up some trust you will be able to pet and hold him all you want. Have fun!
