Otto, the Pet of the Day
Name: Otto
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Wrexham, North Wales, Britain
   Otto is simply wonderful. He's incredibly sociable and will take any opportunity to make himself heard by purring, clucking and chirring - although he rarely squeaks, probably because he knows I'll do anything he wants without him having to demand it. He's very smooth and lithe and enjoys racing around the floor, but he does less of that now that he's middle-aged. He still behaves like a youngster when he jumps around for his favorite food, freshly picked grass, and he pouts just like a toddler when he's given something unworthy of him, like carrots or Royal Gala apples.

    Otto loves to have a cuddle (when it suits him) and especially likes to snuggle up on a fleece blanket or a soft jumper. However, his favorite occupation by far is chasing female guinea pigs, and he devotes hours every day to monitoring where the girls are and seeing whether he can impress them with his sexy dancing. They're never impressed by him though, although he melts my heart every time!
