Flossie was a black and brown guinea 'Abysinnian' guinea pig. Her
rear left quarter was brown and most of the rest of her was black.
She weighed about a kilo. She was slightly heavier than her sister,
Candy. This was because she always got to the food first, even though
we tried to be fair and split things evenly. She always lived indoors
in a cage. See Guinea Pigs : general for
details on her food, their housing and silly tricks.
She was called Flossie 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 in March 2000, she died of old age, at a bit over 5 years old.
