Snickers, the Pet of the Day
Name: Snickers
Age: Nine weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   Hi my name is Snickers. One day I saw this lady come in to the pet store. She was buying a cage and other stuff. Then she came and looked at us and picked me and my sister up. She took my sister home. The next day she came back with my sister and told the people at the pet store that something was wrong with her. She was sick and died that day. I was sad. Then she came and looked at me and a another guinea pig. She picked me. I was so happy to go home. When I got home my mommy saw that I was limping. She took me to the vet. I have a little broken leg. But that is getting better. I also have some cuts on me because bigger guinea pigs would pick on me. The cuts are healing up and I am happy to have a home. My mommy loves me and my daddy says I'm ok. But I know he loves me because he picks me up and holds me and loves on me. And their daughter (my sister) is nuts about me. I love my to be held. I make cuddling noises at my mommy, and I beg for food. I am having so much fun. My mommy is very proud of me. She says I am a real handsome, sweet man. And I know it.

      Thank You,
