Dearest Timbit, what an adorable, precious little guinea piggy you are! You are so cute with that sweet little face and the so-soft-looking fur, and you have a great personality, too. You like to play around and pretend to get stuck under boxes, and when someone picks you up, you just melt (so to speak) in his/her lap. You do pick on your brother sometimes! But we know you and he and your dear people all love each other very much, don't you. What a delightful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Timbit, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and your brother and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.

Death thought about it.
CATS, he said eventually. CATS ARE NICE.
