About Us
Katie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Katie
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Cornwall, UK
   Mrs. Katie Cuddle-Hugs was one of the first born to our original couple, Mrs. Honey and Mr. Hubie Cuddle-Hugs.

    She had brothers and sisters who are sadly not with us any more, and I am pleased to say she seems really happy on her own since Aubrey died. She has a run every day, which she loves. She is a bit nippy sometimes but she always has been. She doesn't perform any tricks but loves constantly running in and out of her tube when in the playpen.

    She is special as they all are, but she is a survivor. We were ignorant about piggies when we first had them and were given the wrong information so we ended up with quite a few babies. However, we kept them all and gave them a loving home and as much as we would like choaties (our name for baby piggies) we would not go down that road again. I wouldn't rehome them except to friends on Wheekers - the guinea pig forum I now belong to - so we knew they would have good homes.

    Katie loves food, she is a pleasure to feed and she gets plenty of variety. Often quite late at night I am having supper and I look up and Katie and her granddaughter Lolly are doing the same, we all have supper together. It is just a nice feeling.

    I hope she is with us for a long time yet - she is six years old and shows no signs of slowing down.
