Ziggy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ziggy
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Hazel Green, Alabama, USA
   This is little Ziggy, wishing everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day. I call him "Ziggy" because he just zigzags around in his cage. I considered calling him "Gemini" after the zodiac sign of the twins. He is really two little guys in one. When you look at him from one side, Ziggy is mostly white. On the other side he is mostly black.

    All of the male cavys at my house have been neutered. Two sets of brothers get along fine. Ziggy is just a little too aggressive to be with another male. If a female comes along, I think he will do fine. Right now I have his cage beside Jerry's, who is also alone because he picks on his cage mates. At least they can see each other and have some company.

    Ziggy doesn't know any tricks, but he sure knows when it's treat time. He and all of the others go "weak, weak" when they hear me coming with kale, celery, carrots or collard greens.

    Guinea Pigs are wonderful pets but they are not like a cat or dog. Sometimes people get tired of them and don't want them anymore. Ziggie is a rescue, but I feel he is happy in his new home.
