#Furholics: Meet Tom And Jerry, The Amazing Guinea Pigs At The Nagda’s

Meera and Jayesh Nagda got two little Guinea pigs for their daughters Maitri and Tanvi. Soon Tom and Jerry cut down the girls TV time and taught them to be more responsible.

The Personalities

Yes their personalities are very different from one another. One is very shy and one is notorious, hence the names.

Daily Routine

Mornings begin with a few pieces of apple. Then time out of the tub to run around, back to their tub with their crunchy food. After that it’s a bit of sun bathing and nap time till the children comes from school.

Then they go to the garden with them or visit friends for more playtime, snacking and after sunset it’s time for bed!

Life after Tom and Jerry:

They brought a lot of change in the family. The children learned to love even more, handed their emotions better and became responsible for the pets.  Tv time went down and playing with Tom and Jerry took up more time.

They try to make them run, they make various toys to get them to exercise and play games like mazes. Nobody is bored at home!

Good Food

We feed them all types of salad vegetables, leafy vegetables.

We also try new fruits and veggies… if they like it we know we can add it to their meals.

Easy Pets

They are cute, less maintenance, vegetarian and do not need much attention like dogs and cats do. With regard to maintenance, they do not require any special attention.

The only daily requirement is to clean their cage.
