After the loss of my pet hamster Hammie last February, I was on a search to find the one pet I wanted more than any other. A skinny pig. What is a skinny pig? A hairless guinea pig. I know, they sound weird. You think of pink and wrinkly when you hear hairless, but they’re actually the most adorable things ever. No store in my city had them, and the store owners said whenever they do have them, they’re usually gone within a few hours to a day. Yup, they’re pretty popular, everyone loves these things. So I had to wait a week until they had one, and my mom fell in love with him even before I did. He’s cuddly, he cries when he’s upset. he whines when he wants food, and he purrs when you pet him, and he snuggles up to you. A small animal that cuddles with you? I’m in love!
I’m not sure what I love more. The big eyes, the floppy ears, or the cute little muzzle. I love it all! I named him Jasper after Jasper T. Jowls from Chuck E. Cheese. He’s the dog mascot (there’s a mouse, chicken, monster, dog, and a human mascot). And he’s my favourite one so like I do with literally all of my pets, I named him before I even got him or saw what he looked like. But I think it fits him quite well!
They live five to eight years rather than one to two like hamsters, so we have a long journey ahead of us! So glad I got this little baby, he’s absolutely precious. ❤
See you soon,
