Jaws, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jaws
Age: Eight weeks old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Pequannock, New Jersey, USA
   This is Jaws. We got her two weeks before this picture was taken, and it didn't take long to fall in love with her. While she was still a little nervous and shy then, she is coming along nicely and getting used to us feeding her and taking her out. She didn't play with my other pig or three rabbits at that point. She has her own cage with a little house and she was very tiny. She didn't have a big appetite and wouldn't eat anything at all until we left the room.

    Now Jaws has been with us nearly two months and she's very affectionate. She likes to come out of her cage and she'll sit on my lap for quite a while before she actually starts to get bored. Now that she's with us a little longer I let her run around and play with my other pig and three rabbits. She runs so fast it takes quite a while for me to catch her when it's time for her to go back into her cage. She really likes carrots now and if I feed my other pig first, she makes very high-pitched sounds to make sure I don't forget to give her some lettuce too. She still waits for me to leave the room before she runs over to chomp down on her supper. She's very alert and recognizes my voice. When she hears me coming toward her room she starts to squeal and when she sees me she comes running out of her cage. She's really cute and we're glad she joined our family. We look forward to many happy years with her.
