Chili, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chili
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea pig
Home: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
   Chilli is a very special guinea pig. She is very gentle and friendly, but also has a sense of humour. When we let her run around our living room, she loves to play hide and seek. Chilli gets very excited when we chase after her. Because we know that guinea pigs love affection, we brought in a playmate in for her as well. His name is Petri (after the pterodactyl in The Land Before Time). They get along very well, although they didn't at first. They can't seem to live without each other. They cry when they are separated. So we are sure to take them outside together. Just six months ago is when they started to make their own family. Chilli started to get really fat and we thought that maybe we were feeding her too much. We didn't think that she could be pregnant because when we bought Petri, we were told that he was a girl. But as soon as Chilli had four little brown babies, we knew that it wasn't true!
