Otis, the Pet of the Day
Name: Otis
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Illinois, USA
   Hi, my name is Otis. Looking at me in this picture, you would never know that I am the ultimate champion of 'Catch me if you can.' I looked very poised and calm here but that's just because I was trying to impress all of you. I am not yet one year old but I am really starting to come out of my shell. I never used to leave my pigloo but I have since become more social.

    While I am sure that my mom is not too happy with my constant pigloo tipping, I think she is proud of me because she always claps and cheers when she finds my pigloo upside down. I haven't figured out how to turn it back the right way so she helps me with that. When my mom first got me, she thought I was a pregnant girl, or maybe sick because my belly seemed so huge. Turns out I am just a really big boy. Sometimes she refers to me as her small dog and not her pig. I don't know what that's all about! Aren't I cute? Mom says I am!
