||Seven and a half months old|
is Stewart... he is our 4th guinea pig and has proven to be the
most lovable of the bunch. Stewart was a rescue piggie, found in a small
over-piggie-populated pet store. He had been there since birth and was
six months old when we brought him home. He is by far the most cuddliest
of all the guinea pigs that we own. He loves to be held, and gives back
as much love as we give him. We are very lucky to have found Stewart
when we did. He had been in the pet store and had little to no human
contact since his birth in the store six months prior. He was very small
for his age, obviously undernourished, and was suffering from a skin
condition. There was no way we could walk out of that store without him
but that first day we did. I was bound and determined that three guinea
pigs was enough. That night I lay awake a good part of the night
thinking of that poor little piggie with those pink eyes and brown nose
staring at me out of that cage. By opening time of the shop we were
there, pet carrier in hand, bound and determined to make him ours.
Within weeks of being in our home he was gaining weight, enjoying the
tastes of fresh veggies and being lavished with loads of love and
attention - something that he had never experienced before. Now Stewart
is paying us back ten-fold with his wonderful personality and his sweet
little licky kisses...
