I loved my Guinea Pig, Petals. Petals was a great pet for a kid like me because she was hardier than a smaller hamster or gerbil in the hands of a learning child. Petals was great because, unlike my hamsters, she wasn’t nocturnal, so it was easy to play with her during the day and she didn’t keep me awake at night. She was definitely louder than any of my other rodents, often squealing if she needed something or was unhappy for any reason. Petals LOVED red peppers, and it was fun to watch her eat them. She was also more willing to sit still and let me hold her compared to my hamsters, which made her a good cuddle buddy. In general, Petals was willing to put up with anything. No complaints about this little piggy!
