Pigwig, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pigwig
Age: Deceased, Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: England
   Pigwig was my introduction into the cavy world and was the most contented out of the three pigs I have and would happily let you pick her up and cuddle her. Fiercely independent, Pigwig stood no nonsense from her piggy friends but loved to curl up on anyone's lap so long as it was soft and warm and fall asleep almost immediately after a few licks and nibbles on specially selected fingers!

    Although content and friendly with humans, she showed her annoyance with her companions very vocally through her loud squeaks of displeasure and if any one pig dared show any rebellion a quick chin butt soon put them into place! She loved fresh grass and Romaine and was always first up against the cage bars when she heard food coming, pushing aside the others to get the biggest, greenest leaf! She also enjoyed lazing in her hammock and in her usual fashion pushing the others aside to get on it!

    Sadly Pigwig is no longer with us. She is very sorely missed and will be remembered forever.
