Blackberry, the Pet of the Day
Name: Blackberry
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Peruvian Guinea Pig
Home: Hartford, West Virginia, USA
   Blackberry is special because I rescued her from a home where the owner had grown tired of her. Blackberry wasn't being properly cared for anymore, so I was glad to take her and give her a good home. She is a very sweet and beautiful guinea pig. She has just had a hair cut in this picture. She is a Peruvian Guinea Pig and her hair will drag on the ground and can get tangled if not cut, as she does not like to be brushed much.

    When I clean her cage, she will purr when I put her back in, it is like she is saying "thank you." She will purr when she gets lettuce in the mornings too. She loves hand-picked grass/clover, dandelions, cilantro, carrots, celery, and apples. I feel blessed to have her as part of my family.
