About Us
Abby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Abby
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, USA
   Our classroom pet is named Abby to help us remember that she is an abyssinian guinea pig. She has a mohawk down her back. When we pet her down along her back, she purrs. We give her vitamins every day from an eyedropper. At recess, we take her out of her cage and ride her around the room in a toy truck or boat. She is weighs about one pound, twelve ounces. We have a record book and weigh her almost every day. We are allowed to take Abby home over the weekend to baby sit her. She has become a part of our class and we love her very much! Abby the guinea pig is owned by Mrs. Taylor's second graders at Saltsburg Elementary.
