Tarot and Spooky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tarot and Spooky
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: English Guinea Pigs
Home: Southern New Jersey, USA
   Tarot and Spooky are English guinea pigs. They are twin sisters, two years old and live in southern New Jersey. We got them both because we were told they were sisters and didn't want to split them up.

    Tarot and Spooky have distinct personalities. Tarot is friendly and curious. Spooky is shy with people but is dominant over Tarot. They are both excellent with children. Like most guinea pigs, they have learned to associate sounds with food and squeal loudly when they think they hear food coming. They recognize the sound of the refrigerator door, the rustle of plastic bags, vegetables being cut on a plate, and the opening of the front door.

    Because they have red eyes, some people think they look demonic. In reality, however, they are sweet, docile pets.
