Piggy sitting

My sister's friend/neighbor is going to the beach next week and needs a person to look after her... wow, forgive me if I spell this wrong... guinea pig (did I get it right? ), in this case me I have other rodents in my room (gerbils, rats) as well as one rat currently on anti-biodics for a URI. Is it safe to bring him into the house, or should I put him in the loft (a finished room) above our 2nd garage, the place that I quarintened my new rats in? I want to put my animals first, but if it is at all possible I don't want him to be incredibly lonley (although I think he's in the laundry room at the friends house...) So, what should I do? Thanks in advance for any help!

putting him in the loft will be fine, its actually a great idea, safer for the guinea pig and your pets. Just make sure that when you go see him you wash your hands before and after you visit with him so as to not bring any kind of germs to or from him to your animals. Also make sure to spend time with him so he doesn't get lonely. Hope I helped

I am piggy sitting right now. Ziggy and Smore are in the front bedroom. I had tried to put them in with Penelope before but that was short lived. She hopped right in their cage.
Piggies are fun to sit for. Ziggy is a great cuddler.
