Calamity Jane, the Pet of the Day
Name: Calamity Jane
Age: Three and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Peruvian, Abyssinian Mix
Home: Arlington, Massachusetts, USA
   Calamity Jane is a fabulous guinea pig with lots of attitude. Things haven't always been easy for him; he ended up with a girls name due to a misidentification at the pet store, he has been forced to move with me three times, and he puts up with his feuding brothers with a calm grace. Calamity knows when it is time to eat and isn't afraid to let you know as well. He wheeks for parsley and carrots in the morning and melon and broccoli at night. If you are not quick enough with the food he will run over to the side of his pen and look at you from under his hair, he is quite the coquette! He loves to cuddle and if you offer up sufficient adoration and stroke his fur just right he will promptly fall asleep on you. He has exciting dreams, often kicking his legs as dogs do and then waking up and looking quickly around to make sure no predator has snuck in to steal his treats.
