Cecelia, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cecelia
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: Montclair, New Jersey, USA
   Cecelia is a sweet Abyssinian guinea pig who was born in Allston, Massachusetts. She lived with me for a year in Boston before moving to New Jersey. In Boston, she helped me through the stress of college, kindly offering to reduce my study load by chewing up half of whatever I was reading! She was always there for me, wheeking loudly every time I came home, standing on her hind legs to beg for treats and cuddles, and making the most of our small quarters by racing around in circles on the floor. She likes me to lie on the floor with her and will occasionally break her racing pattern to leap suddenly onto my stomach. It startles me every time, and she knows it!

    Now that we're in New Jersey, she has a bit more room to stretch her legs. She loves to popcorn around the living room and run through her "tunnel" behind the couch. She's a wonderful friend and a delightful source of entertainment every day. Weve just been celebrating her second birthday, and I hope we'll have many more happy years to come.
