is Pepe! Before we had Pepe, I had another Guinea Pig, Caramel. I loved
her so much! However, one day, she suddenly passed of heat stroke. It was
quite a shock to the family. For a while, I became depressed.
One day, during summer vacation, my mom came home holding a towel very
carefully. I saw something moving inside! I was very shocked when I saw
Pepe's head pop right out of the towel! According to my mom, Pepe came from a
family that couldn't take care of him anymore. She drove to the person's
house, and picked him up. He was originally named Mister Mister, but we
thought it was unfitting. My dad suggested the name Pepe, after the cartoon
character Pepe Le Pew. He told us he looked sort of like a skunk, and we all
agreed on the name Pepe, even thought skunks' stripes go lengthwise! Pepe
just fits him, we all agree! He really lights up our home every day!
