Do guinea pigs attract rats?
my neighborhood has a wild rat problem and i really want a guinea pig but my mom said "no the open food and hay will attract the rats!" i have a c&c cage and will have a stand for it. i also have a hamster. all the food and hay (for the guinea pigs and hamster) will be kept in plastic containers. and i will clean their cage about every 2-5 days because im using fleece. so, will that attract them? if so, is there anything i can do so it wont? all we are concerned about is them getting into the house. thanks much!
