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?
As you may or may not know, whee have lots of snuggly tents, cardboard boxes and cosies for when whee play in the garden. Unfortunately there is only one that I like and it also happens to be Basil’s favourite. He will happily snuggle most things but I’m sure he goes in this one to annoy me.
So yesterday, when whee were enjoying a lovely evening run, I got my revenge!
I would say it’s not what it looks like . . . but it is. (apologies for blurry pigtures these were taken on Mummy’s phone) Basil had made himself comfy inside MY tent.
So I huffed . . .
And I puffed . . .
And I sat on top of it till he got out!
Who says whee piggies don’t have a sense of humor eh!? Anyway a few bits and bobs before whee end this post. Firstly, the sad news. There have been two terrible losses in the guinea pig world recently. First was Peaches who left for the Rainbow Bridge on Friday 20th. Whee cannot put into words how much whee feel for Sandra who was a wonderful cavy slave to her. Please pop over and leave a message to let Sandra know you are thinking of her. Also, if it weren’t for Peaches, another piggy Snuggles would not have had her tumor discovered. So Peaches last, and most memorable to us, act in this world was saving the life of her cage mate. What could be a greater thing than that?
The second loss was Ariel from Princess Guinea and Ariel who sadly passed away yesterday. She was a bootiful piggy and one of my Buddy’s Babes club. Whee know that her hoomans are heart broken at the loss of such a wonderful little piggy so please pop of and leave some words of comfort for them.

Now for some slightly happier news, whee are the proud recipients of two awards. Though whee have received both before whee felt they deserved a mention. To get something once is an honor, to be thought of twice by different furfriends is humbling. Thank you The Cat on My Head for The Wonderful Team Member Leadership Award . And thank you to Review Books and More for the Shine On Award. Please check out both blogs if you haven’t already! ^_^
So much happy and sad feelings, what a topsy turvy Tuesday. Please have a lovely day efurryone
