||Two months old|
am introducing my little piggie, Punky. He looks like a big hamster (his
nickname is Giant Hamster). I got him for my birthday. He came from a pet
shop, and he lived in a little terrarium with one bunny and three other guinea
pigs. I loved him at first sight. Four years ago I had three other piggies
(only males), but Punky is very different than them. They were not very
tame, but Punky is! When I take him to his "night room," and go to the the
sitting-room, he comes to in front of the cage bars, after climbing the
bars, and begs for attention (and of course food). But most guinea pigs do this.
Why Punky is special? Because he isn't very afraid the loud noises, and he
came with me to our weekend house and Margaret Island. He likes when
someone is petting his fur. When I whistle a little, he comes, because I
taught him if he hear this sound, he gets delicious food. I don't know
why, but guinea pigs are crazy for the cucumber, and Punky is too. Punky
loves playing with his toys, but he doesn't like bathing. I hope that one
day he will be a therapy piggie, because he is housebroken, and doesn't
pee the human who is holding him! He has some fans among my friends. He is
intelligent - when I play him his own sounds (I sometimes record his
voice) he never responds to his own sound! He is a very special guinea
pig, and I hope he will be healthy and fun like now for a long time!
