Princess Piggy Poo is so soft that sometimes — even after all this time — it still takes me by surprise. You might think that all guinea pig fur feels the same but from my limited experience there are a range of textures even when the appearance is similar.
My friend Doug had a cavy named Mr. Cucoloris that had coarse fur. The rest of the Cucoloris guinea pig family had average fur. Until I met Princess Piggy Poo, I never knew a cavy could feel so velvety. Initially, I thought it was her baby fur; the way human babies have soft skin. I prepared myself for the day she would outgrow her silky hair, but to my delight that never happened.
Princess Piggy Poo still has the loveliest, softest cavy fur. It’s addictive and relaxing to pat a guinea pig that feels like velvet. Cuddling Princess Piggy Poo is better than a glass of wine after a stressful day — and no calories.
