Peanut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Peanut
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: New Mexico, USA
   This is our Guinea Pig Peanut, our light-colored guinea pig. She lives with our other guinea pig Cinnamon, who is a dark-colored guinea pig.

    Our Guinea Pigs make us laugh all the time. Peanut is the more active of our two piggies. Sometimes Cinnamon will just sit there while a ton of stuff is happening. Peanut likes just hopping around going crazy, playing and getting her exercise even if the house is noisy and mom is vacuuming, and my brother is playing the piano, etc. All of a sudden, we all look at her and laugh. When we come home from school, I take out my guinea pigs and cuddle them. Peanut enjoys playing hide and seek with us among the pillows on my bed. Peanut is the noisier of the two, and often squeaks when playing!

    Another wonderful thing is, Peanut is very good and obeys when we tell her to stay. That is how I got this picture of her in the "chef hat." For an active guinea pig, she is also very obedient! She and Cinnamon are also easy to understand and care for. In the morning, they squeal for breakfast and water. I clean their cage every few days and most of the time they are happy throughout the day. Peanut is such a fun and active and silly piggie!
