Lady, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lady
Age: Three months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Tampa, Florida, USA
   Hi! My name is Lady, and I am a guinea pig. I live with my human friend and her family, my guinea pig mommy, and several of my guinea pig friends in Tampa, FL. When I was born, I was the only survivor of five babies born to my mommy. At first my human didn't see me because I was hiding under my mommy. My friend was very sad because the others were dead, and she started crying and trying to comfort my mommy. Mommy, however, had a surprise for her! She raised up so I could peek out, then mommy nudged me toward our friend. My friend was happy that I was alive and called me her "Little Lady." She also assured me that I would always be a part of her family.

    I love my friend soooo much. Whenever someone in her family is holding me and I see my friend, I quickly jump over into her hands and start purring and chattering. I love my friend, and I'm glad that she is keeping me for life. Oh ... and my friend tells me that soon I will be a big sister. Isn't that exciting?!! I can't wait!
