Fred & Xaver, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fred & Xaver
Age: Two months old
Gender: Female, Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Hungary
   These are my two guinea pigs, Xaver and Fred (I also call them Xavi & Freddy. They are not only my pets, they are also my friends. I formerly wanted a dog, but I didn't get one. Then I saw guinea pigs, and fell in love with them! I got Xaver and Fred after my first cavy died. They are young so they are still somewhat timid, but I love them already!

    Xaver has got big, black eyes and a small nose. Xaver has a special talent because he can do big jumps while screaming at the same time. Fred's head is black and brown but her body is white. Fred likes playing with my plush animals. Their favorite food is grass, and they also love eating apples, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, timothy, hay and seed, and in winter, parsley. And they love water, too. When they're hungry and hear seeds plinking into their dish, then they start running without thinking!
