Fluffy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fluffy
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Somerset, England, UK
   Fluffy is a big softie, with the most beautiful nature imaginable. He never attempts to bite, he loves to suck clothes and lick you all the time. Fluffy arrived with his brother Sam in September 1998 after Heathcliff our three year old rabbit (and house rabbit of six months) had to be put to sleep. Mum and I called into the petshop to get some food for our other three piggies and we saw a rabbit with two guinea pigs in the cage (the rabbit is hopping around our house too, she's Catherine Earnshaw). I held the tiny bundle of nearly all white bundle of fluff and he offered so much comfort after our loss. We had the piggies. The day I went to collect Fluffy and Sam, I called in the shop to get some water bottles for the hutch, and to arrange transport for the piggies and the hutch, there was a mother with a young daughter (she was about five or six years old), she wanted one of the guinea pigs and pointed at Fluffy: "Oh you don't want that, it's ugly, oh its sold anyway!" the mother said. I made a point of saying quite loudly "I'll see you two later" I hope she heard me. If only that mother could see Fluffy now, he is a beautiful guinea pig, now a two kilo bundle of fluff. He is gentle and affectionate, I feel extremely lucky to have him as well as five other adorable piggies.
