Hi, and welcome to Planet Pet Passion! My name is Jenna, and I’m the main writer and editor of this site. I’m currently owned by 8 guinea pigs (yes, 8!), 2 rabbits, a fun-loving border collie, a Fischer’s lovebird, and several fish. I’ve also had rats, mice, hamsters, and cats in the past.

My primary goal is to educate people on all aspects of animal care, behavior, and training. I have a deep love of training, enrichment, and the human-animal bond. Helping people achieve a stronger relationship with their pets and understand them on a deeper level has always been my passion.

I hope to share that with all of you through this site! Thanks for taking the time to visit, and enjoy your time browsing through the content here on Planet Pet Passion!

Keep scrolling to meet some of my furry sidekicks! You may recognize them in photos throughout the articles here. They are always happy to do some modeling for me to help illustrate the site (with plenty of treat compensation of course!)

Guinea Pigs


This sweet boy is 5 years old and he is quite the character! He was adopted from a local humane society at 1 year old. He’s a little escape artist and he’s always being nosy and getting into something (just in case there’s food in there, you know?) He’s naturally a little clown that makes anyone smile without even trying.

He’s also very calm, nonchalant, and not phased by anything. He brings a very calming presence to other guinea pigs. This ability helped immensely when I brought home his girlfriend, a spayed albino girl named Willow.

Willow had been a lab guinea pig for the first year of her life, so naturally, she was pretty timid. TJ wasted no time making friends and showing her how to live her best piggy life, such as lounging on fluffy beds and squealing at the human when she’s too slow with the veggies. 😉


Willow is a 2 year old spayed girl. As mentioned above, she was born a lab guinea pig and was then retired and put up for adoption after a year.

Despite her tough start, she has quite a big personality and she’s gained a ton of confidence. She is a queen, and she makes sure TJ knows it!

She’s a huge foodie, and she has come to really love people too. She’ll jump up on my lap excitedly for treats and gentle strokes.

TJ has also taught her to push down fences and squeeze through small spaces, so she is well on her way to becoming a little troublemaker! She is such a sweet soul though and I’m happy she has her forever home with me and the rest of the piggies.


Peach is a sweet 3 year old fluffball. She’s likely a mix between a Peruvian and Abyssinian. Peach is a big guinea pig, but she’s a total sweetheart. She loves petting and will close her eyes and purr when you stroke her head and neck.

Peach is a total diva too. She’s not big on running around, and she only likes the greenest parts of her lettuce. She also loves sprawling out on her bed like a little pancake. 🙂

She is also a huge foodie, as long as the menu is prepared to her liking, of course! 😉


Daisy is a 3 year old girl, adopted from a family that could no longer care for her.

Daisy is such an easygoing, sweet pig. She is unphased by everything and loves everyone she meets. She is very patient and loves modeling for photos.

She’s also the biggest foodie ever and will eat nearly anything. If it’s edible (or not) Daisy will try to eat it! She’s a chunky monkey, but she still loves to run around and explore at every opportunity.


Poppy is a mischievous 3 year old Abyssinian piggy. She is always curious and quick to learn new things. A little bossy, but she is such a fun little character!

Poppy is always running over and interested in anything I’m doing. She loves to be in the center of everything. She also LOVES her lettuce and will do anything for a nibble of her favorite veggies.

Poppy was adopted from a family when she was about 1.5 years old. She is now bonded with her new friend Pansy and living her best life!


Pansy is just under a year old, and she was adopted at a young age from someone who was allergic to her.

Pansy is a super fluffy and adorable mixed-breed piggy. Her hair is wild and adorable, it’s the cutest thing.

On the contrary, her personality is super sweet and easygoing. Her favorite thing to do is lounge in her cozy unicorn bed (spoiled piggy!)

She also loves her food, as long as it’s something she likes. Like Peach, she only likes the greenest parts of the lettuce. Healthy foods like sweet bell peppers are tolerated but not overly appreciated. 😉


Skylar is a fairly young guinea pig who is full of energy! She loves food, saying hi to people (aka seeking more food!), running, and jumping.

She is so smart and curious, and because of this, she’s always getting into mischief! Despite her naughty tendencies, she’s such a sweetheart who loves to jump on your lap and socialize. She is full of confidence and loves life to the max.


Skittles is the daughter of Skylar, and she is absolutely full of beans! Like her mom, she is energetic, adventurous and a tiny bit of a troublemaker.

She loves exploring every nook and cranny she can get into. She also loves socializing with people and she absolutely lives for her food! Skittles is always so curious and she loves to be involved in everything.

She has also become a little escape artist, learning to push fences and squeeze through little corners. Her favorite things to do (besides eating!) are running, popcorning, and exploring as much as she can.

Other Animals

Jigsaw and Jinx

Jigsaw and Jinx are 3 year old mini rex rabbit sisters. Jigsaw (grey and white) is the most affectionate and food-oriented. She loves to groom her sister and cuddle up to her. She’s a gentle soul and gets along with everyone.

Jinx (brown and white) is a little more bold and curious. She always likes to poke her head into things and see what’s going on.

Both girls are super sweet and easygoing. They love to run over and greet me at the door. They also enjoy learning some cute little tricks for additional fun and enrichment.


Ally is a happy, crazy 2 year old border collie. She loves adventures of all kinds, including kayaking, hiking, camping, agility, and more. She loves her people and getting cuddles, but playing in water is her holy grail!

This girl is super smart (too smart usually!) and loves her agility games and learning fun tricks.


Tao is a super handsome and chatty 2 year old male Fischer’s lovebird. This little guy is a big parrot in a small body!

He is very social and always comes over to greet people and chirp up a storm. He’s super active and always a lot of fun to have around.

He also loves to hang from his toys and run through newspaper tunnels. He LOVES his millet, but climbing on shoulders is by far his favorite pastime.
