Rajah, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rajah
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: American Short-hair Guinea Pig
Home: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
   This is Rajah, my four-year-old tortie and white American short-haired guinea pig. He was adopted from the SPCA with his sister at seven months old and was my first guinea pig ever. I had wanted guinea pigs for so long but my boyfriend was reluctant to have pets until we were more settled. For my birthday my friends adopted him and his sister for me and I was thrilled. Even my boyfriend had to admit they were really cute. His sister has since passed on (she had cancer) so he now lives with three other girls whom he adores. He is constantly purring and wiggling his bum at them in the hopes that they will get cozy with him. (He doesn't understand that he is neutered.) He is a very sweet little pig and constantly puts a smile on my face.
