Lotje, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lotje
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Rex Guinea Pig
Home: Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands
   I got Lotje from my mother's boyfriend, the day my other guinea pig Winky passed away. She was the most active piggie in the cage and I picked her also because she was a rex piggie like Winky had been. Lotje is still a very lively guinea pig, always asking for food or eating. This picture was made for the piggie calender we made for 2006. We liked this picture best with her in the spring setting. Lotje does not liked to be petted, but is very fond of people (as long as we don't touch her too much, that is).

    Lotje is my happy piggy, as long as there is food, everything is fine by her. In other words her main interests are food, food and food! She has a very special bond with my sister's piggy Yaya. They have known each other since Yaya was about six weeks old. they really like to lick each others ears, but Lotje hates to have us touch her ears!

    Her nickname is Kamikaze Lotje, because she likes to jump of the couch out of nowhere. She also likes to try on the purple cape (which is actually the hammock), we think she fantasizes about being a superpig flying from the couch looking for where the vegetables are coming from.

    Lotje and my boyfriend also have a special bond. When he calls her name she will come running hoping to get a treat from him. he is always allowed to pet her, but mostly i am not allowed to pet her. She loves to play with the snackball, it has an opening where the treats leave the ball. she will keep playing with it until it is empty. She is a happy pig!
