NICKNAMES: Tuk-Tuk, Piggy, The Piglet, Mrs. Piglet

Piglet the guinea pig was adopted in June 2009 from a private party in Banks, Oregon.
During Piglet’s stay at the HappyCavy Forever Home, Piglet was The Queen. She spent her days laying around, resting in her pigloo, and dominating snack time. A lot of people thought she looked like a bear…maybe it was her slow, calculating nature or her beautiful black coat. She loved to sleep and eat, and thought there was nothing better than snacky time!
