See Alex the Guinea Pig, the Pet of the Day
Name: Alex
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Bakersfield, California, USA
   What makes my Alex so special is that he was the runt of the litter. And there wasn't a good chance of him surviving because he was neglected by his mother. So I went through a lot of researching and stores to find some way to save him. I always had faith in him surviving but I thought that there was no way he would, that is, until he found his mother's "sister" who already had a litter of her own, was taken in by her. He just had help from God who helped nurse him back to help. Like I said, I had no idea that he would've survived.

     I was watching his mom and aunt as I was fostering them for a bit. Once he was weaned, and went on pellets and hay, we found his mom and his mom's "sister" a good home. They were adopted as a pair because they were inseparable.

      Alex doesn't know any tricks yet. He is pretty vocal so when anyone walks by him he will "whistle" or talk to us until we say something back. The second you open the fridge, he whines for fresh veggies. Even if you are near it and not even touching it, he will whine for some.

      Alex, the piggy, is a survivor. It is clear that runts can survive but what makes Alex special is because he went though a different story. P.S. He loves selfies! :)
