So yesterday the hooman asked you to take guesses at what I had been up to the previous evening that was so naughty. Plenty of you had brilliant ideas but no one guessed exactly the
mischeif fun I had.
Now I don’t know about you but sometimes I like to pretend to be a hooman. So that night instead of cuddling in my usual spot on Mummy’s lap, I climbed off onto the sofa next to her. She said I was looking extra cute as I snuffled around the cushions. I lay down and stretched myself out to my full length as I’d seen the hooman do before when she wanted to claim a sofa as her own.
Then I realised I was at a slight height disadvantage! So I gently “encouraged” Mummy to get up.
“Now that’s not quite how it happened Basil-“
She was quite happy to move onto the floor and make way for me after a few gentle nudges…
“I think you’ll find I wasn’t that happy about-“
She got up and sat on the comfy floor. The other hoomans were quite accepting of my human dominance also.
“Well with you rumbling, biting my clothes and trying to dig your nose under me and flick up, I didn’t really have much choice! Plus you tried to nip anyone who wanted to sit down on the sofa near you, even though there was plenty of room!”
I don’t know what you are talking about hooman, I was furry comfortable!
Does anyone else like to pretend to be something else once in awhile? What are you up to today?
You may remember our Don’t Parsley Me By contest raising awareness of animals in rescues. (If you missed it, this is the link to the video of all the entries from it) What has made us bring this up again? Well, though whee aren’t discussing it every minute of the day, there are lots of bootiful animals in rescues, efurry minute of the day!
BlogPaws has done a lovely badge encouraging hoomans to adopt from rescues when looking for a new addition to their furmily, and whee were super duper happy to see a guinea pig included on it! See:
They did a blog post which included seven reasons why you should adopt. To see the full post click here. One of their reasons particularly struck a chord with us because it is so true!
Guinea pigs and other furry rodents get excited when their parents walk into the room. Have you ever heard the happy squeals of a guinea pig? I have owned several and it is incredible when they see you and are just as thrilled with your presence as your dog might be.
Whee do squeak like crazy when the hoomans get home. Basil is particular loves his little hooman and whenever he comes home from school Basil goes crazy wheeking and popcorning with happiness. Trying to get out of the cage for cuddles. Seriously! If whee had tails, they’d be wagging!
Mummy tried making a video of the moments leading up to when Basil’s little hooman gets home. (She has to shut up the cage so that he doesn’t go to the front door. Usually it is open so he can run around it whenever he wants!) He sits . . . and waits . . . . and squeaks a lot! Mummy sort of failed though because her camera died before the little hooman came in! Camera – 1 Mummmy – 0
Whee hope you like it. And remember. Think rescue when getting a pet.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil
ps. Thanks to efurryone who noticed and commented about the new seasonal banner and background. It was Mummy’s attempt because the little hoomans weren’t there to help so she is glad you like it!
