Do cats get along with guinea pigs?

I had never thought about this before until my husband told me his mother in law had a guinea pig and a cat. He has always loved cats and the fact that she had a guinea pig and a cat was fascinating to him. He sd that the guinea pig was friendly and even walked around the house with the cat, they did not chase or bark at each other, and the cat had never attacked the guinea pig.

Our cats, however, always seem to chase and bite my husband's guinea pig if he leaves her by herself in the yard. They seem to like to chase him around the yard, and have even bitten him before. I have read on the internet that guinea pigs are very docile and easy to tame, but we have not had much luck. They like to run and hide from him. I'm afrd they'll hurt her and wonder if they'll hurt us too?

When we had them, it was a cat, 2 guinea pigs, and a fish. The cat never bothered them at all. It was the guinea pig's and fish's job to chase the cat and keep her out of the cat's fish bowl. It was a real battle.

I have had guinea pigs and have had cats. My cats are quite the "bully" breed, but never seem to try to attack the guinea pigs, unless they see me approaching. They are quite curious though. I think if you are really committed to getting a guinea pig you should put your cat in some sort of trning so it won't hurt her. When we got our first guinea pig, she got into our cat's cat food and died. We tried to feed our cats the same thing and it did the same thing agn.

We also had a fish that was fed from a bucket of fish food. She would swim right into the bucket and get food, but my daughter thought it was interesting and would sit with her head inside the bucket and watch the fish. We got a second fish a few years later that she was very interested in. She kept swimming into the bucket and we eventually got the hang of what she wanted, but at first it was very hard to understand. Now, they are both still alive and have very good personalities. They still have a "feline" curiosity and will walk around sniffing and checking things out, but they will never hurt anyone and they are very good around people. We have had to have a few of them fixed because of ear infections and other illnesses, but they seem to be good pets, just like cats, and you have to be able to handle them.

I've had guinea pigs and have had a cat (who also loves fish, but I've never owned any fish) but only for a few months. Both cats and guinea pigs are very friendly, and seem to get along fine. I never worried about the cat eating the guinea pig. I would have my dogs and cats all together but they are not so friendly. We had a dog who wouldn't even let the cat in our house but the cat would come right in and they would be just fine together.

I don't know what your dog is doing, but a guinea pig could not be "cornered" by a dog if it wanted to stay alive. I've seen it happen too many times, the cat will jump on the dog and the dog is supposed to be the "alpha" animal in the household. A guinea pig will either run away or let you do whatever you want with it.

That sd, we had a guinea pig that lived indoors for 8 or 9 years. When she got old and had to be put down (too expensive to keep it alive), I found someone who was willing to take the cage, all of it, and the animal. I had her for 3 years. The cat came in, sniffed around, took a look at the cage (which was a bit smaller than a shoebox), and left. She came back a week later and checked it out. The next time, she came in and checked it out. The third time, she was a little more bold, and looked inside the cage. When she did, she ran away.

She came back a month later, when the little girl I had adopted from a puppy mill was going into the kitchen, the cat went in and looked around for a few seconds. She came back in, and when I walked in, she got right in her face. I had to pick her up by the collar and pull her out of the room. She didn't do it agn, and we were a nice place for the next 5 years.

It was not that we treated the cat differently, and it was not that the cat was mean to the guinea pig. The cat was not bothered by the guinea pig. The guinea pig just liked to hide, and the cat just wanted to see what was going on. She never showed aggression towards the guinea pig.

My wife, however, has had guinea pigs all her life. She was the one who rsed them. When I met her, there were five guinea pigs in the living room. I was not impressed. I wanted to put them in a nice pen, but they had one of those plastic play tunnels where the animals are free to go in and out as they please. So I put my guinea pigs in there and closed the door. The cat jumped on the counter and stayed there for the next 2 days. She looked all over the house for food, and at the guinea pig's food.

When I came back to find out what she was doing, she
