Pedro Piggy, the Pets of the Day
Name: Pedro Piggy
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Massachusetts, USA
   Pedro is very special to me. Being so far from home, I was very lonely. The day I got Pedro that changed for the better. I still miss home but he has made me a much happier person. He fills my life with happiness. When I am having a bad day I just grab him and cuddle with him. He makes all my worries go away. He is very special to me and I could not imagine my life without him in it now.

    Pedro is very quirky. I love when he runs around. Usually at night is when he gets his spunk and takes off running laps around the living room which we have pig-proofed. Since he is a Guinea Pig, he does not do any tricks or play games but when we rustle a bag or open the fridge door he figures he is getting a treat. He wheeks and chirps until you give him something. He is spoiled rotten. I spend time cleaning spinach and doing other things for him that I do not do for my husband and myself.

    For the most part Pedro is quiet. He loves hay and fresh fruits and veggies. His favorite fruit is cantaloupe and orange and his favorite veggies are spinach and seedless cucumbers. Pedro is more of the independent type - until I can catch him (he runs very fast)! I usually pick him up and cuddle him twice a day or so. He is usually restless when I first pick him up, but I hum baby tunes to him and he settles down and nuzzles with me. It is the nuzzling and cuddling that I love so much.
