Christmas, the Pet of the Day
Name: Christmas
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: England
   A real character, Christmas is not at all shy, very messy and loves climbing (he thinks he's a hamster!) - although not particularly agile at it! Christmas came to live with me in October '02 and has since become the escape artist of the three guinea pigs I have (two females). Twice he's managed to clamber over and out of his cage; once by nudging aside the lid and making his way over the 16-inch tall cage wall! He is neutered. He's a real wheeker and once he hears footsteps over the stairs - a sure indicator that food is coming - he will wheek the whole place down until he gets what he wants! He eats anything in front of him and his hobbies include purring at the ladies, nibbling on toes and fingers, and popcorning.
