About Us
Margot, the Pet of the Day
Name: Margot
Age: Five months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Glasgow, Scotland
   This is Margot just after her bath. Margot came from a rescue centre just four weeks ago, but has already made a huge impression on us. Our previous Guinea pig Leon passed away at the end of December, and we were all devastated. Not least our other guinea pig Ruby. She was so depressed, and we just has to get her a new friend to try and perk her up a bit.

    Margot is such a noisy little guinea pig, and so very, very cheeky. She chunters constantly, and then wheeks with excitement whenever she thinks there may be food on the horizon. Her favourite is Cucumber, and she goes crazy whenever she gets it. She has also learned all of Ruby's bad habits, and they both beg for human food, and harass us for buttered toast.

    The change in Ruby has been amazing since we got Margot. They charge around together and have great times. They are a pleasure to watch (even if I can't hear myself think at times!). She can never replace Leon, but she is helping to mend our broken hearts.
