About Us
Olivia, the Pet of the Day
Name: Olivia
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: Glasgow, Scotland
   This is Olivia, our almost two-year-old Abyssinian Guinea Pig. She lives with us in Glasgow, Scotland. When our beloved Lucy passed away during the summer, we needed another little piggy to fill the huge gap in our lives. We went back to the rescue centre where we've picked up our previous pets. Olivia was chosen for us by the lady who runs the rescue. Olivia had previously been kept with six other piggies, and had to fight tooth and nail for everything she got. She is such a big girl, she must have been a very good fighter.

    It has taken us a few months to win her over, but I think she is finally realizing that we are good people, and we love her. She has learned loads of bad habits for our other piggie Margot, and the pair of them get into trouble on a daily basis. Olivia loves to cuddle with us, and is a kissing machine. There is nothing sweeter than a piggie percolating on your chest.
