Lily, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lily
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Rhode Island, USA
   I had wanted a small pet for a while (we have two dogs), and then my mom surprised me by getting Lily for me when I had my wisdom teeth pulled. She was the best present ever! I named her Lily after Harry's mom from the Harry Potter books.

    Lily is so sweet, and loves to cuddle with me, and she loves to crawl around under my blankets. She's brave, and loves to explore. As soon as I put a new cardboard box or something in her cage she climbs in right away to check it out.

    Lily is also a good teacher. When I got my other guinea pig, Amelia, Lily showed her just what to do. Amelia followed Lily around everywhere. Luckily Amelia didn't pick up Lily's bad habit - chewing on the bars of the cage!

    Like all guinea pigs, Lily loves to eat! She and Amelia let out loud wheek wheek's whenever they hear the noise of a plastic bag, thinking they're going to be fed. Lily is a very special guinea pig.
