||One year old|
||Peruvian Guinea Pig|
||New Jersey, USA|
is one year old. He's a Peruvian guinea pig, but we live in
New Jersey. Timothy is just the most lovable piggie ever. He curls-up
under my chin and snuggles and coos. He loves to be combed and
brushed, that usually puts him to right to sleep!
All Peruvian guinea pigs have long, in some cases, very long hair.
Since I don't show him, I trim his hair to keep him comfortable. He
does groom himself, sort of. But he loves to be brushed and combed.
He lays on my lap and coos and sometimes even falls asleep while I do
Timothy's favorite foods are apples, pears, romaine lettuce, and hay
(timothy hay, of course!) When I put him in the piggie's play area at
night he runs around, in and out of the PVC pipe, and plays with the
cat toys (little balls with bells inside.) He stands up, as best he
can, and begs for treats and he hates to get picked up and put back
in his cage, oh well? He is a wonderful and loving pet. I have only
had guinea pigs for about a year now, but they make the best
pets...along with dogs...
