Gizmo and Fluffy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gizmo and Fluffy
Age: Two months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: New Jersey, USA
 
   We brought home our new additions in mid-November after searching every pet store in New Jersey to find the perfect one and ended up falling in love with two at a not-so-local pet store. Their names are Gizmo and Fluffy, though my two-year-old son calls them Fluffy and Fluffy.

    Gizmo(left) is playful and enjoys being held while watching TV, while Fuzzy (right) is more the boss of the cage and likes the comfort of his home. At feeding time you can hear them both squeak out loud until their bowls is full of veggies.

    They love to be held and petted and go crazy for carrots and apples. They are one of the best and easiest pets to have and since I have such bad allergies and cannot have cats or dogs, to both of my children Gizmo and Fluffy are just like having two puppies in the house.

    We would not trade these two in for anything. They get along great with our children and are very timid and lovable at the same time. They have been a great addition to our family.
