Lucy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lucy
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Glasgow, Scotland
   This is Lucy. She is a two-year-old Abyssinian Guinea pig. We got her from Thistle Cavies, a rescue center in Scotland. When we got her, she'd had a bad fungal infection, and her previous owners did not know how to take care of her. After three weeks at the rescue center and two weeks with us, she is well and truly on the mend. She's nervous of people, but she is getting braver every day.

    Lucy is a companion for our other Pig, Margot. We lost our previous pig last month, and it was devastating for all of us (especially Margot). This are looking up for all of us though, as Lucy is a lot of fun. She is a lovely pig, and posed for her picture like a pro. She has the loudest wheek (especially when you chop veggies or rustle a bag that might contain food) I have ever heard, and she has the biggest ears I've ever seen on a piggy. She has won my heart already.
