We are Taffy and Sundae, two female guinea pigs. We feel that we
should be pet of the day because our mommy is always telling us how
good, how sweet and how special we are. We know she loves us because
she gave us a home when no one else wanted us. We live happily in a
deluxe guinea pig cage with a ramp and balcony. Our mommy cleans our
cage twice a week and gives us lots of oat and timothy hay,
timothy-based pellet food with stabilized vitamin C, and plenty of
fresh water in a sipper bottle. When we hear the refrigerator open, we
immediately think we are getting treats. Sometimes we're right. Our
mommy whistles to us, and we climb up to the balcony for our treats.
Sometimes it's a baby carrot and sometimes it's catgrass (wheat grass)
served on our pignic table. Sundae likes almost any fresh fruit or
vegetable, but Taffy is particular and only likes the grass and baby
carrots. We both enjoy reading and eating the Chicago Tribune business
pages. We like to read up on our mutual funds. Our favorite thing to
do is to have our mommy or some other nice person hold us and cuddle
us. Then we talk to make sure they know how much we appreciate it.
