Kes, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kes
Age: Deceased,
Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Agutti Guinea Pig
Home: Oakton, Virginia, USA
   The middle guinea pig in this picture is Kes (after a Star Trek: Voyager character) - she should be guinea pig of the day because she was sweet, adventurous and always squeaking without end! When we connected our two cages together, with tunnels, she was the first to go through and claimed the second cage as her own! She was also the best tempered piggy - she let anyone and everyone hold her and (almost) never bit anyone. The almost is there, because if you happened to eat a carrot yourself before picking her up, she could smell it and mistake your finger for a carrot!!! One time, she was squeaking so hard that she had tears running down her face and she was drooling - all because she wanted vegetables. What an actress! She was two and a half when she was killed by a dog.
