Kirsten, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kirsten
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Kansas, USA
   Hi, my name is Kirsten. I live with four other guinea pigs who are just like sisters to me. Right now, I have to stay in a separate cage. You see, a few days ago, I had to go into the vet and have my right eye removed. My eye hurt really bad and was infected and inflamed. I guess they found an abscess behind it. I hear everyone call me a trooper, though. I guess they are pleased that I starting eating and moving around shortly after the surgery. I take my medicine really well also as I know my mommy and daddy just want to make me better. They even give me any treats that I want!

    Still I can't wait until I'm better so that I can live in the pen again and lay in my favorite spot. My mommy says no guinea pig should have to go through what I went through, so I guess that makes me pretty special.
