||One year old|
||Peruvian Guinea Pig|
||Brooklyn, New York, USA|
is Teddy. He is a Peruvian guinea pig and is one year old. He lives with
his friend Stewie (who doesn't hold still for photos) in Brooklyn, NY. Teddy
is a ham and you can play with him like an action figure, and pose him for
photos! When you hold him, he is like mush. He loves to lay down as flat as
possible and enjoys having his chin scratched. He is very affectionate but a
picky eater who only enjoys fresh lettuce and cucumber, although he will eat
his other food when he must. The romaine and cucumber the piggers get only
twice a day, as a fresh snack, otherwise it's pellets and timothy hay all the
way! He is also big on naps. He does like getting brushed and he is currently
sporting his snazzy summer do because it is hot in Brooklyn.
Piggies are precious, sweet animals, but are also prey animals and are
delicate, so Teddy and I want people to know to love their pigs and take care
of them! And to adopt a piggie if they can! They are funny and social
critters and are the perfect small pet!
