About Us
Igor, the Pet of the Day
Name: Igor
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Crested Guinea Pig
Home: Knoxville, Tennessee, USA
   Igor is a very special guinea pig. He is a white crested guinea pig with golden agouti spots on his eyes and rump. He used to live with a little boy, but unfortunately the family could no longer keep him and he came to us. His name is Igor because he has a head tilt. It could have been caused by an ear infection when he was younger or a spinal injury, but Igor is perfectly healthy now with just a little tilt.

    Igor is approximately one year old, but don't let him fool you. He has more energy than even the youngest of pigs. He will run laps around his cage for an hour at a time. He jumps from his house, to the floor, to his ramp, and back to his house. However, even though Igor has tons of energy, he is also very lazy! Expending so much energy makes him very sleepy, which is why his nickname is "Sleepy Piggy". Most of the time, you will find him sleeping - in his house, on his mat, in his hay, but usually on top of his house. That's right, Igor is no stranger to sleeping wherever he can, and he greatly enjoys the higher view from his "apartment". When he's not running circles or sleeping, Igor enjoys giving kisses or eating kale greens. He is a truly remarkable pig, and our family is so grateful to have been able to bring him into our home.
