Tefal, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tefal
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: England
   This handsome fella is Tefal. Tefal (Teef to his friends) is a superstar - a totally funky pig with stacks of personality. Hobbies include jumping up on anything where he can get a better view of the world and liaising with the ladies! Also likes hanging out by the fridge waiting for lettuce and cucumber to rain down!

    Tefal was one of three baby pigs hidden inside Charlie, one of the two females I had acquired a couple of months beforehand! I couldn't bear to part with any of them. When he was born, he had an enormous head which looked quite out of proportion to his body - hence his name (from the tv ads for Tefal goods starring the men with the huge heads??..anyone...??!!..aaah, never mind!).

    Tefal loves his lady pig friends, especially Fred, but won't tolerate any other boars. He's a real softie - he'll sit for hours grooming the ladies, and purring at them. He also loves getting attention and being groomed himself and will quickly curl up on your lap and go to sleep. By day he is a free ranging pig, and potters happily about the house with his piggy friends, most frequently to be found by the fridge. He likes playing in the wine rack and jumping up on top of things to act as watchman! By night, he is the pig defending the most sought after box, which he will pull over the food bowl as he loves his nosh.

    He stars on many pages of Treen's Pigs, for anyone who wants to see more of him! Cheers! Treen
