||Two years old|
||Abyssinian Guinea Pig|
is my beautiful guinea-pig Brownie Furrball. His first "wife" was Cookie
Furrball. She gave birth to three babies on me and my sister's birthday
(May 23). Unfortunately, she died soon after on my mom's birthday (June
17). Then we kept Daisy Furrball with him. She gave birth to three babies
the first time: Bianco, Bella, Bugsbunny. The first set of babies we kept
for several weeks and then gave them away to good homes. The second time
she had another three babies: Cacao, Cappuccino, and Chocolate. The second
time after several weeks we gave all of them, and sadly, I had to find
Brownie a new home as well. We couldn't keep them because we could not
find anyone take care of them during our vacations and could not leave
them alone. Also, we live in an apartment, and we only had a cage on a
table for them in the enclosed balcony, and we decided that it was too
small for them. We knew it was the right thing to do, but I still think of
him as my piggie.
He is very special to me because he reminds of the happy times we spent
together. He loved being cuddled or going under your armpit during
winter because it was warm and dark there. Brownie also loved going on
the shelf made out of cardboard in their cage. Sure, he was a bit lazy
and had a chubby stomach but he is very cute. He really enjoys being
played with, and eating. His favorite food was: cabbages, apples,
carrots, straw, and the special treats and seeds.
I taught him to go from the beginning of the windowsill all the way to
his cage. He could also stay on his back for a few seconds if you put
him that way. And what made him very, very special is that when Cookie
died he took great care of his kids. He was a very good father, so I
believe he should be honored.
He has colorful nails and small, furry paws. He has beautiful eyes, and
Brownie, I love and I always will, even if you don't live here any more,
I will always remember you!
