Gillian, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gillian
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Australia
   This is my nine- going on ten-year-old guinea pig Gillian, also known as Gillybean. She used to belong to my cousin, and came into my care when my cousin passed away. My own guinea pig, Conquistador Crinkles, a Textel male, fell in love with her at first sight. Not long after that Gillian had a stroke which left her on a permanent slant, and had a second stroke a few months later. This left her unable to have babies, She wasn't in pain, though, and her "husband" still loved her. And you can see from the picture, she has no trouble enjoying her food, I interrupted her in the midst of piece of a tomato.

    Sadly, Conquistador Crinkles passed away suddenly in September last year, leaving Gillian broken-hearted. And now, unfortunately, we have been told that she has cancer throughout one side of her body and doesn't have long to live. But she has lived a long time, and we hope she has had a good life. We love you, Gillybean.
