Onslow, the Pet of the Day
Name: Onslow
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Golden Agouti Guinea Pig
Home: Anoka, Minnesota, USA
   Onslow was born on November 3rd, 2003 at about 12:05 am. I got to witness most of the birth of this litter. I've watched Onslow grow from a little baby with his brother, Napolean, who he had been with since birth up until a couple months ago when Napolean suddenly and mysteriously died. Anyway, Onslow has adjusted quite well. I tried getting a new cagemate for him, but it seems that it was his brother or nothing for Onslow, so I ended up with a new guinea pig with his own new cage. haha...

    Onslow is a funny, cuddly guinea pig. He loves and trusts me and is very attached to me. Onslow is also a very particular and somewhat stubborn guinea pig. He loves his little green and yellow bowl he has had since he was weened from his mom and will not accept any other bowl for his food. If I put food in a different bowl and give it to him, he'll refuse to eat until he gets his green and yellow bowl back. Onslow also will do funny things like push all his litter together in one pile or move his bed across his cage in front of his food so he can lay in it and eat. When he eats his timothy hay, he lays on his side with his foot stretched out and chomps on it, like a lazy cow grazing on grass. Another cute and funny thing is that for some reason, Onslow is terrified of music boxes. The music scares him and sends him running to hide somewhere.

    Onslow is one of the most lovable and cutest guinea pigs I've owned. We share a strong bond and I hope he will live a long, healthy, and happy life!
