Marco Piggy Piggy (Guinea Pig)

Marco Piggy Piggy is a 3 month old guinea pig. I got Marco from a locally owned pet store in my city. I've had him for about two months. He was born March 29th.


Sometimes when I take naps, I give him a separate blanket that he hides in to sleep. I love bringing him outside to watch the sunset and get fresh air. I named him after the male singer from one of my favorite bands "Nightwish".

My first grandchild had a guinea pig. I was raising a baby squirrel named Rocky. My 4 year old granddaughter combined guinea pig with my Rocky, and from then on, any small animal resembling either of those were Rocky Pigs, so your Rocky Pig is adorable, and you are going to enjoy how sweet they can be. Really nice little pets.


Thank you for sharing him.

When I was in 6th grade we had a class guinea pig named Irving, red & white like Marco. We kids took turns taking him home for the weekend to feed & care for him. I loved him so much that my parents surprised me with a guinea pig of my own one day. Mine was a red & white female I named Turandot, after an imperious princess in my favorite opera (I grew up with classical music). She really was a character, and we ended up calling her Piggy most of the time. Once she bit my curious poodle right on the nose! We kept her in large cardboard boxes with a screen for a lid & Piggy used to chew her way out of them! The dog used to steal her lettuce, which later led to all our dogs getting a piece of lettuce for a treat at dinner time. Piggy used to cuddle up with me when I would read in bed. She was affectionate with people, but didn't really tolerate the dog or cat. Guinea pigs are so cute when they groom themselves, & their high-pitched "wheat! wheat!" cries always made us run to see what was the matter (usually she just wanted attention). Piggy lived to be 7 years old & I have often thought about getting another guinea pig. This brought back fond memories. I hope you enjoy Marco Piggy Piggy & have many fun years together! Thanks for sharing him with us, and please keep us posted on him from time to time.

Guinea pigs make really nice little pets. They are charming and I love their little whistling voices. Marco Piggy Piggy is a handsome little guy.
