Sooty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sooty
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: UK
   Sooty is an Abyssinian guinea pig, which is hy he has such wild fur. He got his name for his black markings on top of his head, otherwise he has all white fur. He is special because he is so friendly! Sooty loves being cuddled and stroked as much as possible. Even when we give him a bath, he loves it and purrs and purrs instead of jumping out and getting me soaking wet like all my other guinea pigs do! Don't worry, Sooty was not being squashed at all in his picture, he was happily sitting on my lap, very sleepy!

    Sooty actually went to live with two of his sisters for a while, but now he has moved back in with us and lives happily with his mother. He still loves being cuddled and petted. Sooty loves having a bath, and he likes to swim in his baths, which is quite unusual for a guinea pig! He loves eating spring greens and broccoli.

    I think Sooty is one of the most special guinea pigs in the world! He is friendly and affectionate and a very good pig.
