About Us
Abasette, the Pet of the Day
Name: Abasette
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Abysynnian Guinea Pig
Home: North Bay, Ontario, Canada
   This is my beautiful piggy, Abasette. She is very important to me. Abasette is black all over except for a few golden patches and three white dots on her nose. She has rosettes all over her body which make her look kind of fat.

    Abasette is extremely smart and she has always had perfect manners. Most guinea pigs ask for food (very loudly!) but not Abasette. She never squeals unless I ask her if she wants food. She is very sweet and never bossy. It only took me about a week to potty train her and after that she has had no more accidents.

    She loves it when I hold her and when I let her sleep in my bed. She also loves it when I rub the little bald spot behind her ears (that makes her purr). She is the cutest guinea pig on Earth and she knows it, so she has a little bit of attitude! I trained her that way (I train all of my guinea pigs to bite people I don't like!). She is also trained to come, beg, freeze, purr, and run.

    We love each other very much and I don't know what I'd do without her.
