Meeko, the Pet of the Day
Name: Meeko
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Fort Myers, Florida, USA
   Here is my male guinea pig, Meeko. He lives with me and my family in Fort Myers, Florida with one other guinea pig named Penny Lane, and a Parakeet named Gillmore. Meeko is one of the most loving, affectionate pets I have ever had the pleasure to own. His only patterns are shown in his picture, and he got his name from the Raccoon "Meeko" in the Disney movie Pocahontas. He loves to eat, sleep, cuddle, and hang out with Penny (he is terrified of Gillmore, who loves to peck at his nose and ears). Meeko, who is often nick-named "Pig Boy" and "Mee" by myself is a squeaking machine. He loves it when he is held, and kissed by the family. He has a cranky side as well but never actually bites anyone besides my mother. Meeko has been known to attack my mother when he is cuddling with me if she has gotten too close! This pig is a wonderful animal and my whole family enjoys time with him. And one thing I definitely know is that he loves us as much as we love him.
