Teddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Teddy
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Mahopac, New York, USA
   Teddy and his brother Baci came to our family as a special surprise. We adopted three sows (females) from a wonderful guinea pig rescue called Critter Connection. One little girl was very young and having just been separated from her mother, there was no need to think she might be pregnant. Well, she was! Luckily, she was a wonderful little mother and her two boys were born big and healthy.

    Teddy had tight curly fur resembling a teddy bear when he was born which is how he got his name. As he grew, his fur became long and wavy and he blossomed into a very handsome guy! We all love Teddy because he is very affectionate and adorably sweet! One day, our family searched the house thinking that a bird had been trapped inside. The "chirping" went on and on and we traced the beautiful sound to Teddy just singing his heart out. We are very grateful to Critter Connection of Durham, Connecticut for adopting five wonderful guinea pigs to our family. Each one is truly a joy!

   Teddy says: OPT to ADOPT a homeless animal!
