Bongo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bongo
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Seattle, Washington, USA
 
   Bongo is my current piggie after many years and many piggies have come and gone. I adopted him when he was about six months old from a shelter, and he is now about a year. Bongo has been my best "road-trip" buddy. We have gone on several trips in the car together to beaches and mountains. He rides in his box on the front seat next to me and is the best travel companion I could ever ask for!

    Bongo is very affectionate! When I hold him, he likes to crawl up my shoulder and perch on my back. I work in a geriatric facility in Seattle, and Bongo comes to work with me often as a therapy pet. The other staff here scoop him up so much that sometimes he never gets to see our clients, but it doesn't seem to matter to him. He just loves everyone equally. He is quite the little love!
