Petric, the Pet of the Day
Name: Petric
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: USA
   We were searching for a cage for my baby bunny in a pet store, when we came across Petric. He was in a wire cage with another guinea pig, and funny enough, he was trying to hide under the other pig for protection. It was a funny thing to see, little Petric trying to hide under an equally as small white guinea pig, you would have had to be there to appreciate it.

    Anyway, we immediately fell in love with him, and have had Petric ever since, he and my bunny became fast friends. My bunny was very curious and would investigate everything! Petric would join her on her adventures. One day, they even realized that if you tipped over the garbage can, you could probably find old food that had been thrown away. They had a few extra meals on that adventure!

    My bunny recently passed away, but Petric is still with us, I'm sure he misses his buddy, but he is getting used to it. In a way, I think that he also appreciates all the attention.

    He loves to scuttle around and play. He's a very social pig, and likes to make himself heard. One of his favorite new habits is to lick your fingers. It's funny, because he licks them from top to bottom, not missing a spot of skin. He loves spinach, carrots, and as a treat, grapes. But, we sometimes call him a garbage truck, because he will eat about anything that you put in front of him! As you can see, Petric has found a spot in our hearts, and that spot will always be there.
