Tuppence, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tuppence
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Coronet Guinea pig
Home: England, UK
   Hello there! My name is Tuppence-Poppy, and I am an eleven-month-old Coronet guinea pig. I am such a pretty girl - my mummy tells me this all the time. I hate being picked up, although I don't mind being stroked (as long as I have some food to get my teeth into!!). I have a cagemate, Charlie-Parsley, and I scold him sometimes because he keeps interrupting my thoughts and trying to shove his way past me. I do love him really, but he can just be so annoying!!

    My mummy, whose birthday is the day after mine, looks after Charlie and me so very well... we get two big salads every day, and we have a spotless house every morning (although we prefer it with loads of poops everywhere).

    I am such an energetic girl... I run so very fast, and jump so high that it makes Laura laugh all the time! I am very special to Laura, as is Charlie, because we helped her feel better after her long illness which stopped her from doing anything. Now she is much better and she loves us so much that can't leave the room without giving us kisses and cuddles and telling us how very special we are to her!
