Hi, so my mom is not letting me get another guinea pig. I know that they are better in pairs, and I have told my mom everything. I have told her and shown her all the evidence that guinea pigs are better in pairs, and she still says no. I have the money for a bigger C&C Cage and there is room for it (i measured) in my room. I have had my guinea pig for about three months now, and she always chews on the cage and I know that she is lonely. I try to be with my guinea pig at least 2 hours a day, but I have a social life and homework and I can't spend all my time with my guinea pig. I have enough money for a second guinea pig and a cage, and I am responsible. My mom doesn't give me a straight answer, and she thinks that our guinea pig is OK by herself, because "all she does it eat". I really don't know what to say to my mother to let me get a second one. (I have already made 3 powerpoints and she doesn't even answer when I bring up this topic).
