||One year old|
||Abyssinian Guinea Pig|
||Ridge, Long Island, New York, USA|
named her Piggy because we didn't know if she was a girl or a boy so
we just started calling her Piggy. Whenever we come into the room that
she's in, she comes to you when you call her name. We always let her
watch TV with us, of course with a towel under her, just in case. But
at night when we hold her and we're all watching TV, she'll stretch out
and lay all flat. Sometimes she gets a little too comfortable, and we
have to wake her up to put her to bed.
She was a rescue pig, and her original name was Pasta, and she had a
little sister in the same cage named Raguu. Since they were rescue
piggies, she didn't cost a thing, but that didn't matter, we just picked
her because her little face and her big black eyes looked at us and said
"pick me pick me!" we couldn't resist her.
She doesn't know any tricks but she does like to hide in things, like
boots or under towels, we have a tube for her and she loves to go into
it. When we open the fridge she squeaks and jumps around. She likes to
chew on the bars to get our attention. She's our little princess. And
we are lucky to have her!
