Nicholas, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nicholas
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Florissant, Missouri, USA
   Hi'ya, I'm Nicholas, the lucky guy who was adopted by my mom and dad when I was about two months old in 2005. I also have five very pretty female cavy neighbors who share Mom and Dad's home with me. Mom and Dad named me after our veterinarian, a cool dude who takes good care of us kids whenever we get a boo-boo.

    Since I'm the only cavy guy in the house, I have my own bachelor pad, and I like to move my cardboard house all around in my cage while I'm inside of it. I love all the attention I can get, and Mom always laughs when I start moving my house around. Mom and Dad say that I'm like a little bull-dozer, so that's why they gave me a toy bull-dozer (top picture) for my second birthday in 2007.

    All that house bull-dozing gives me an appetite, and I like baby carrots, romaine lettuce, spring mix, raddichio, baby spinach, grapes, apples, hay, and of course my pellets. My most favorite veggie is parsley, but Mom lets me have a little bit of parsley every day because too much of it could cause bladder stones, she said.

    I love getting a daily ear-rub from Mom. I also like to play hide-and-seek with Dad in the morning when Dad gives all of us our breakfast veggies.
