Reeses, the Pet of the Day
Name: Reeses
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Agouti Guinea Pig
Home: Chesterfield, Missouri, USA
   Reeses was a Christmas present to me from my parents. About a year and a half ago, my two guinea pigs died and it left an emptiness in my heart. Reeses is very special because he is a rescue piggie and he filled that hole in my heart. He purrs when he is happy and squeals when he wants more food or he wants attention.

    Reeses is very curious and he loves to explore. He would run all over the house if we let him. He can climb stairs (with me right behind him and guiding him along the way). He cuddles with just about anyone. To my family he is just plain cute. He stands up on his hind legs when I put his igloo in his cage or when I give him treats.

    In this picture, when I put the sun glasses on Reeses, he didn't try to get them off, he just looked around and seemed to be saying "What in the world is on my head?" He is very special to me because I never thought I'd get an agouti guinea pig and I got one! They are my favorite color of guinea pig.
