Candy was a black and brown guinea 'Abysinnian' guinea pig. Her front
left quarter was brown, along with her nose and most of the rest of
her was black. She weighed about a kilo. She was slightly lighter
than her sister, Flossie. This is because she got to the food after
Flossie even though we tried to be fair and split things evenly. She
always lived indoors. See Guinea Pigs : general
for details on her food, their housing and silly tricks.
She was called Candy because this time we wanted a 'fluffy' (candy
floss) name for our guinea pigs. The last two males we had were
called Kernighan and Richie ....
Sadly, on February 25th 2001 she died. She was about 6 years old.
