Leela, the Pet of the Day
Name: Leela
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Charleston, South Carolina, USA
   Leela came to me from the now defunct South Carolina Guinea Pig Rescue. I saw her picture on and knew she was the guinea pig to round out my little herd. As I was about to go on vacation, I put her on layaway! The rescue boarded her for me until I could got back from vacation.

    She is quite a little character. She is so flexible that I call her the Ferret Pig. She can stretch out to nearly a foot long when she wants. Her favorite foods are carrots, basil, and green bean snaps. Her hobbies include eating, tormenting her cagemate Zathras, eating, hiding under the sofa during floor time and eating. When I hold her, my lap is not enough. She climbs onto my shoulder, and tries to climb on to the top of the recliner. When small children want to pet one of my guinea pigs, she is usually the one that I allow them to pet, as she is the gentlest one that I have.

    Leela is a wonderful guinea pig and I hope that she has a happy, healthy life for many years to come.
