She is an Abyssinian guinea pig.
What an odd name for a guinea pig!

Update: PS3 passed away today at 6:30PM April 26, 2016.  She was 5 years and 2 months old.

PS3 was the most vocal guinea pig, I've ever had. She "wheeked" when it's time for feeding. She was the first one to run to the edge of the enclosure during treat time.  She is now with her best friend PC.

A friend mentioned on the phone that her kid doesn't want his pet guinea pig anymore. And it's only been two weeks since they got her. It was timely that I just got one at a pet store that week. I also know that guinea pigs do better when they have companions.

And so a second cavy (another word for guinea pig) was welcomed to my home. I was not sure what to name her. Her top half was shiny black and then I saw my PS3 it was glossy and black. And that's how this guinea pig gets an odd name.

PS3 was skiddish at first, but she bonded well with PC, the other guinea pig. Eventually, she trusted me and will let me pet her. She has a voracious appetite and would steal food even when another guinea pig is eating it already.
