Moe, the Pet of the Day
Name: Moe
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Gloversville, New York, USA
   My pet is special because he is part of our family and he has a cute scruff on top of his head - and sometimes he does a little dance for us. What his dance is, is he jumps up and flicks his head. We don't know why he does this, but it looks fun. He brings joy to our family and we love him.

    Moe, also known as Moseph, has what I think is a funny kind of cheery personality. He is not usually sad and only bites if you do something he doesn't like. He is very sweet and loves to cuddle in your hair. He does know one or two tricks. One of the things he likes is when we close the doors of the eliding room and let him run all around any where he wants to go. His favorite spot to go is under our big blue chair. He hides from us under it. We also have a leash for him that we take him outside on. He hates when we put it on him, but after he's outside, he loves it.

    Since he's only small and we don't want to put him near any older female piggies, afraid they might not like him and hurt him, he is the independent type. In his cage he has two levels and there was a ladder that he could climb up to get to the next level where his food was. One day my mom took out the ladder and forgot to put it back in. We saw him jump onto the next level. So we decided to keep it out and now he always jumps from one level to the next!
