Stormy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Stormy
Age: One month old
Gender: Male
Kind: Texel Guinea Pig
Home: Glenfield, Auckland, New Zealand
   My pet's name is Stormy. He is one month old, the picture, though, is of him at one day old. He is much bigger now, and still growing, but I love this picture of him. I think that Stormy is special as he was born from my pet guinea pig, so I have known him his whole life! He is a red Texel guinea pig, and I love his wavy copper-colored fur. That's how you can tell he is a Texel - normal guinea pigs have smooth fur, and Abyssinians have long straight fur, but Texels have this interesting texture.

    I have handled him from day one and he is a lovely character. He is so sweet, and never bites. And of course, he is absolutaly gorgeous, as the picture shows. He is absolutely darling, and is just about as sweet as a guinea pig can be. He has a sisiter called Cloudy, she was born with an eye condtion and is blind in that eye, but Stormy and she don't really seem to notice that much at all. They play and scamper like happy little pigs should. Stormy is a handsome boy and a very special pig to me.
