Ella Ahsheems, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ella Ahsheems
Age: Three and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Grand Rapids, Minnesota, USA
   This is my guinea pig Ella Ahsheems. She was bought from a pet store three years ago, and was the last pig out of her brothers and sisters to get a home. At first she was a very quiet, and spent her days sitting in the corner of her cage. Within two weeks though she learned that a plastic bag crinkling means its lettuce time. Today in her golden years she spends many hours cuddled in blankets or on my lap. Every night though she gets her exercise by doing rodeo(popcorning) around the living room, then she goes home to eat some more. She is a very happy little pig and purrs when you scratch her ears. She is the boss of three other pigs and she makes sure they know this by always getting first dibs on the food.
