is Patches, he is an Abyssinian guinea pig. He is about four
months old now. Patches and I live in Swanton, Ohio along with 57
other guinea pigs.
As you can see Patches loves corn on the cob. He will eat that whole
piece by himself and it will be the cleanest cob you could ever
imagine when he is done. Patches and all his other guinea pig family
all get a midnight snack every day, and corn is one of them, but
Patches likes to be taken out of his cage and sit on either me or my
friend's chest and eat his treat for the night. One night we were
watching him eat his corn on the cob, and he always eats from left to
right, row by row... he likes you to hold it for him and he puts his
little front feet on it to hold it steady as he nibbles away.
Another thing that all the piggies including Patches love are green
beans, and again Patches likes to come out and eat his green beans on
the bed... laying with someone so the human can hold them for him
while he nibbles. When I put the green beans in their cages they all
get so excited, I have to be careful that one of them doesn't bite my
finger because they get so excited that they are getting green beans
for their snack... I must admit that Patches and the whole family are
extremely spoiled... but then, what else are they for but to love and
care for and spoil rotten? Patches is a very loving, friendly
piggie... he really has a personality. And of course he thinks he is
special because he comes out to eat his snacks, and if I don't pick
him up, he gets very upset and wheeks his little head off at me and
stares at me, as they are next to my computer...so how can I resist
the little cutie pie?
