Miss Piggy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Miss Piggy
Age: Five and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Wiltshire, England
   Jackie (Miss Piggy) was my brother's guinea pig but he gave her to me so I renamed her Miss Piggy as Jackie really didn't suit her! When we first got Miss Piggy she wasn't very friendly (unlike my guinea pig) which died at an early age. After about a couple of years of having her and after my piggy had died, my brother started to ignore Miss Piggy, so mum gave her to me.

    She is so friendly now - she's like a different pig! She is a very demanding piglet and she is very much a drama queen. She hates being brushed, she will just squeal and squeal but she loves baths! She loves splashing around in the water. She is also a very stubborn little pig. My cat is scared of her as she throws herself at any cat who comes near her so they all stay away! She will also let you know when she has had enough of being in her pen, as she will sit by the entrace of her pen and wheek for us. It is really cute.

    She comes indoors every winter and she is put in mine and my brother's tv room so when we are watching a movie she will squeal along to it. She loves the X factor! Even though she isn't perfect and she can get pretty grumpy and pee on people she doesn't like, I still love her because she brings so much laughter to the family!
