Tuesday Tails Blog Hop

When whee heard about this blog hop run by our furfriends Dogs n Paws, whee just had to take part and urge you to do so too. Whee want to highlight the plight of piggies at a local rescue. Anim-Mates is our favourite animal rescue ever. The work they do is simply amazing.

You can see all the lovely piggies here and all the other animals including cats, dogs and rabbits.

Here are the piggies seeking homes at the time of writing this post:

Adorable just neutered little boy Squidge is looking for a furever home

Coco and her two adorable daughters are looking for a loving family to give them the happy life they deserve

Cute crested boy Bobby has just been neutered and is now looking for a new family to care for

Tender, Tents and Tolerating!

It is not often whee are sharing. In fact Mummy has believed for a very long time that Nibbles merely tolerates me but you may have noticed in the last post whee like to cuddle up together sometimes. This is a source of great amusement to the hoomans who claim to remember the first few wheeks I was part of the family and how Nibbles looked like a new mother or father who could not get the baby to sleep through the night. I was young and rather hyperactive! However they also nicknamed me Mojo for a little while because Nibbles was very sad over the loss of his friend Nugget and I brought back his zest for life.

The bond whee share is more that of Father and Son rather than brothers as Nibbles and Nugget were. He berates me if I am naughty and keep him awake with antics. I keep him young by chasing and playing games with him. I get so enthusiastic about veggie time that he has no choice but to be excited too.

As he has gotten older, he sometimes forgets to eat and drink and is a little doddery but I make sure he moves around and does things. In return when I was ill he sat at my side and nudged me over to the food bowl at breakfast time. Whee particularly love to share our blue tent and doze in it on warm days in the garden:

Some say animals do not love or do not understand hooman concepts of love. But if whee were purely instinct driven animals why would whee take care of the weak ones in our herd and mourn losses so deeply that whee nearly give up living ourselves? Sometimes with our basic right and wrong morals and consideration for one another, Mummy thinks whee show more humanity than some hoomans she knows.

Who are you closest to? Is it another animal or a hooman? And hoomans, do you believe that animals ‘love’?



Not Much Time Left!

Whee are asking you to send us a pigture of you celebrating or your wild parties to celebrate our blogoversary! So far whee have had some great entries which have made us giggle.

Cute Overload?!

When Mummy first told us about this song whee thought it was called cute over ‘LORD’ and while whee are probably that too whee are more overloading the cute scale. Here is us having floor time and playing with the hoomans today. Hope you like it, and yes, it is another ear worm song!

Whee Can’t Get Over It, Whee Can’t Get Over It, Oh No! Whee’ll Have To Hide Under It!

Well whee have once again been cut off from you, our fabulous furfriends and boy has it been distressing. Look, whee spent our days comfort eating to cope with the intense sorrow:

Well it what happened was our dear little compawter, nearly joined the great motherboard in the sky. But whee are ok, because some Techno-Savvy hoomans at a shop have fixed it and now . . . It lives!!! But whee couldn’t get over the problem, so like with this tent, whee hid under it till it went away!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Whee have so much to share with you. First, whee have some new additions to our Buddy’s Babes page with their love poems from Buddy himself. Second, whee will be reviewing some amazing treats. Truth be told, whee kind of already ate most of them! And thirdly, you may have noticed the counter on the side indicating our impending blogoversary, well whee have a special little surprise for you regarding that and whee can’t wait to share!

Yet again, whee will be catching up on your blogs as soon as whee can.

Squeak to you later

Well you would not believe what I have been through! There have been many accusations over the past couple of days over the cause of a ‘smell’ around the living room. Mummy pointed out that the smell appeared most often when I was out of the cage. To my outrage I was the subjected to a sniff test where all the hoomans stuck their hooters in my direction and sniffed loudly.

Buddy, of course found this hilarious but I was appalled. Such treatment did things to a little chaps ego. Mummy declared I would be having a B.A.T.H. I did not know what this was but now I do, I can assure you that these things must be avoided at all costs. Soaking me and covering me in some fancy stinky shampoo is really going to damage my reputation.

So what if I am fluffier, brighter, and whiter at the end of this? (below are my after bath pigtures, I look at bit stunned after meeting the hair drier for the first time – its a monster!)

How will I ever recover my dignity?!

Basil – The Bashful Piggy


The Grass Is Greener

You know the saying the grass is greener on the other side. Clearly that’s what Basil thought as he felt the green-eyed-monster jealousy which you saw in that pigture of Nibbles yesterday. And no wonder! Look at what Mummy gave us first before getting to his run:

Whee are only allowed a handful each as Spring grass is very rich and can give us upset tummy’s if whee are not careful.

The grass is always greener.



ps. thank you efurryone for your kind wishes, I am feeling and looking much better. I am off all my medicines and Mummy is spo happy.

Cavy Caption Contest – Watching & Waiting!

Hiya guys, well whee have another pigture for you to caption. It’s from when whee were  playing in the garden. You’ll notice how bootiful I look having my portrait done but who is that nosy piggy in the next door run?
