Capucine, the Pet of the Day
Name: Capucine
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Peruvian Guinea Pig
Home: Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada
   My pet is a Peruvian guinea pig named Capucine, he is an 8 month old male, don't let the pretty long hair fool you. He lives in Trois-Rivieres (also called Three Rivers), Quebec. Capucine is always hungry, eating fruits and vegetables all the time, as well as his regular food. He often gets bows in his long reddish curly fur, so he runs away when he sees the brush. We try to tell him how handsome he looks, but really we brush him so his fur won't get tangled and be uncomfortable. He doesn't mind getting petted, but hates getting brushed!

    When we first got him, he was close friends with our other guinea pig, Esther, but they don't get along anymore so we need to have two cages in the living room. Now, his only pet friend in his cage is a stuffed guinea pig named Camille. Guess which one is the real one! We love our little Capucine!
