Chui, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chui
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Peruvian Guinea Pig
Home: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
   Chui is special because she thinks she's the queen. She's a high society guinea pig who only allows petting when she's in the "mood". Eats everything and stays very active for an old lady. We love her like crazy. She worships one thing... carrots.

    Chui is quite special indeed. As personalities go, she thinks the world revolves around her. If there are any other pigs in the room, she chases them away and eats the food for herself. If others are getting attention, she watches with spite. Chui has given us some of the most memorable moments in pig history. Once, we put her in a tree about shoulder level to give her a better view of the world. After a few moments she decided she wanted to fly and literally leapt from her perch. She didn' t know that pigs can't fly. Luckily I caught her before her crash landing. Also, Chui lives on a Seefood diet. When she sees food, she eats it!! Anytime, anywhere, anything, Chui will attempt to devour it. We've never seen a pig that can eat rice, noodles, potato chips, mangos and fingertips.

    Still, Chui relies on her exotic beauty to get what she desires. She enjoys sitting in your lap and soaking up a nice rub. She performs a unique gesture when we pet her on the head. She looks up in curiosity like a parrot, searching desperately for her admirer's hand. And finally, the Queen that she is, Chui enjoys long brush strokes under her chin with your finger. In fact, she closes her eyes and sticks out her chin to accentuate the pleasurable experience. Slowly, we've all become her servants...

    She is our one and only Chui!
