Pepper, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pepper
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sheltie Guinea Pig
Home: Somerset, UK
   Pepper came to live with us when he was only about eight weeks old. He was very nervous, and despite loads of attention and cuddles he didn't seem to be able to get used to me. I had a pig called Mango, who I had handreared so he was very friendly, so I introduced him to Pepper and they got on really well - and Mango helped Pepper to realise that humans aren't all that bad! Sadly, Mango later passed away. Pepper got quite depressed after that; he obviously missed Mango and hated being on his own. After a few weeks I tried introducing him to young Fuji, and after a few trips to the run on the grass together Fuji moved into Pepper's home and they've been living happily together ever since. Pepper is a lovely, friendly and happy pig - if a little crazy - and Fuji and I love him to bits!
