Patches, the Pet of the Day
Name: Patches
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea pig
Home: New Jersey, USA
   My Mom and Dad got me at a pet store in May of 2002. I didn't tell them that I was bringing my own "friends" with me. In July of 2002, I gave birth to two "bonus" pigs: my daughter Percy and my son Scamper. We are all pretty big piggies now and weigh almost three pounds each.

    Mom and Dad take very good care of me and my babies - okay, I guess they're not babies any more. But anyway, we each get lots of time to play and run around outside of our cages and love with play with paper bags, cardboard tubes and rolls.

    We squeak at our Mom and Dad every time they open the refrigerator. We like to eat pellets and timothy hay. We also like lots of fresh food like chicory, green peppers, carrots, cucumber and celery. We especially like when our Dad feeds us treats like kiwi, raspberries, strawberry tops, apple and grapes.

    My children and I must make our Mom and Dad very happy because they take such good care of us and they like to snuggle with us.
