Reba, the Pet of the Day
Name: Reba
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: San Antonio, Texas, USA
   Reba was named after the country singer Reba McEntire, I love her music and her hit TV show. My guinea pig is a singer as well, she loves to whistle at me all the time, throwing in some squeaks and she can be very loud, she also has red hair so I thought Reba would be a perfect name.

    She loves to snuggle for hours and she runs around the bathroom while I take a bath after my workout almost every evening. Reba runs in and out of her blankets to hide and gets very excited when she hears the water running in the tub. Reba likes to play with my small dogs as well; she thinks she's a dog, since there is not another pig around to play with. She gets plenty of attention from us and the dogs so she is a very happy piggy. Reba is my own personal pet that I love to just pamper. She always gets me in a good mood when I come home from work.

    Reba eats her Kaytee forti diet pellets and timothy hay. She loves her hay and eats a lot of it. I give her collard, mustard, turnip and parsley greens as well as some fruits and veggies. Green beans are one of her favorites. I mix vitamins in her water so she gets her vitamin C. All guinea pigs need a Vitamin C supplement or they will eventually get sick. Her enclosure is a 75-gallon tank with no lid for plenty of air circulation. Reba loves her PVC tunnels, too.
