is Zack. His former owners could not keep him, so now he lives with us
and his two friends Zeke, another guinea pig, and Dale, a ferret. We have
heard that ferrets and rodents don't mix, but that is not true here, they get
along fine. Zack likes to hide in his little wooden house in his cage. He also
likes it when we brush him, and likes to eat Dale's food, even though we have
told him that is not allowed. (Ferrets are carnivores, and guinea pigs are
supposedly vegetarians.) He is crazy about parsley and broccoli, too,
so that's good.
Zack's bad side is that he likes to hide underneath the bed and can stay there
for hours, so that we won't take his freedom from him and put him back in the
cage. But how could we get mad at him... look at that face! Zack is a great
guinea pig, we love him to pieces!
