About Us
Stewie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Stewie
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: English Short-Hair Guinea Pig
Home: Illinois, USA
   This is one of our very favorite photos of Stewie - you can see his "beauty mark" on the side of his lips (move over, Cindy Crawford) and it looks like he is smiling for the camera while exiting his house! We rescued Stewie and his two precious brothers as babies from a neglectful household in 2005. "The Triplet Scamps" have provided us with soooo many laughs, love and fun over the past years! Stewie required two very, very serious and intricate surgeries (2008 and 2010) due to bladder stones stuck in his teeny tiny ureters! Fortunately, he has the best doctor and a very strong will to live and returned to his high quality of life - twice!!

    Stewie keeps us in stitches with his antics! We joke that we watch him more than TV! He is nosy, sweet, kooky, funny, smart, impatient, lovable and bossy! He has a miniature personalized Illinois license plate on the front of his cage that says "2COOL4U" and we think that sums up his personality perfectly!

    You can see more funny and sweet photos of Stewie and his brothers (and all the GPs we've rescued through the years) at our non-profit GP web site Guinea Pigs R Fun.
