Mugsy Atticus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mugsy Atticus
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Pequannock, New Jersey, USA
   I would like everyone to meet my little cutie, Mugsy Atticus. I have two pigs, Mugsy and Batman. Mugsy came to us on May 6th after we lost another great love, Cassidy. My little girl got very sick and I put her to sleep. After I returned, my other pig Batman was so lost and looking for her and then he refused to eat. I figured I better get another pig before something happened to Batman. That's how we wound up with Mugsy only, as it turns out, Batman isn't too crazy about him.

    They live separately but I let them out together, when I'm with them, and for the most part there is usually some sort of altercation. I hope they get more used to each other but if not, that's okay too. At least Batman is eating again! I love them both and Mugsy is a pleasure to have around. He is so sweet and likes to be held and never gets fresh with me. I think he looks great in his pictures.

    He gets very excited for his carrots most of all and loves to sample all kinds of fruit. We keep him busy with his tasting menu and he loves it here. He is playful and likes to jump in his cage sending the shavings flying and making a big mess!
