||Six months old|
||Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia|
is our guinea pig, Patch. When we first bought him he was so quiet we
decided to put him on my daughter's Bratz toys to take some photos of him. He
just sat there and didn't even move. These are the actual photos of him right
as they are, they haven't even been adjusted in any way, he sat so still!
Patch is about six months old now, and just a normal guinea pig, we're
not sure what breed he is. He is very quiet and shares a bed with a
quarrion (cockatiel). He loves to lick gravy off your finger, or cheese
sauce, too. He goes to school in a basket to pick up my daughter Kahlia
whenever we get a chance to take him, and the kids just adore him. He
even goes up to the shops.
He has learnt to jump from his bed into his basket, and probably thinks he is
going somewhere each time he does.
He even has a favorite grass, which my husband goes out and picks for him,
whether it is raining or sunny. The grass is pastparllon. Patch cuddles into
you at nighttime, and goes to sleep on you. And now, he has even learnt when
my husband comes home so between the dog and the pig, I know when John is
arriving home. As soon as we wake up in the morning, Patch has to be taken
into my daughter's room to cuddle with her, and as soon as she comes home from
anywhere, he has to come out of his cage to be with her. Patch is very special
to us and he is part of our family. We would be lost without him.
