Funny Feline Friday

Ok, so today whee thought whee would tell you about a kitty who has decided that he owns most of the street! Mummy called him Kit.

He is very confident and friendly and likes to visit our garden and spend time with our hoomans when they are out there. He sometimes even walks part of the way to work and home from work with Mummy. But recently he’s a puss that’s getting to big for his boots!

He has decided that, even when the door is only slightly open, he wants to try to get into our hutch. As you can see from the pigture below, he’s quite determined.

Whee don’t mind the hoomans making other furry friends but when those furfriends try to get into our hutch whee have to really put our paws down. None of us have even met this “Kit”! Are whee right to feel be unimpressed by this moggy’s manners?

Have you ever had any unwelcome visitors or wildlife trying to let themselves into your Hutch/House?

Thirsty Pig Thursday

With the weather slowly starting to warm up whee want to remind hoomans about  something furry impawtent. Water and the impawtence of checking your pets water bottles or access to water. This is why whee came up with FULL – Fill, Upend, Leak, Look

IMG_3471

Fill – Is it full to the maximum line allowed for the bottle? Some have limits. Making sure you provide them with the most water you can is extremely important, especially when it is hotter and they are drinking more.

Upend – Tipping the bottle up as it would hang on the cage will allow you to check it is working properly.

Leaks – Is the bottle leaking from anywhere?

Look – Is there any discolouration to the water or any green algae type build up. If there is you need to clean it.

Please remember to check your pet’s water bottle regularly. If they break it can easily become quite serious in hot weather with dehydration and heatstroke very real dangers. For more information please check out our guide to Heat Stroke.

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday

So whee have seen signs of Spring but obviously I need to sniff out where it is hiding in between the bursts of sunshine!

Happy Wordless Wednesday

A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice – Our Review

Now as you know, whee don’t normally review books. Much like the newspapers whee poop all over they are extremely munchable and usually they are a little too long to keep our attention!

But thanks to this book the little hoomans got Mummy for Pigmas whee have been converted and discovered a literary interest (not just because it’s full of pigtures of cute ladypigs but that may be part of it!)

So here is our review of A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice.

Plot: Based on the novel by Jane Austen (which Mummy is apparently a fan of) this tale follows the story of Elizabeth Bennett as she navigates the apparently complicated world of the British Regency. Only this time she’s a rather cute cavy so suddenly a hundred times more interesting in our opinion. If the story is not your cup of tea the guinea pigs in costumes just might be! Whee have to say that whee are rather jealous of a certain “proudest, most disagreeable man in the world“. That Elizabeth Bennet is one of the prettiest piggies whee have seen!

Price: It varies but it the RRP is £7.99

Paws Rating: Whee give this solid 9 paws out of 10!

Do you have a favourite book? Also who do you think wore it better:

Whee are definitely going for the beautiful Molly the guinea pig!

Hope you’re having a great day efurryone. Squeak soon

Wonderful Wildlife!

Whee are quite lucky where whee are there is so much wildlife around. Mummy loves taking pigtures of the wildlife (when she’s not taking pigtures of us of course!). Our most recent garden friends are the three fledgling robins who have left the nest in the tree in our garden. It is so funny to watch them grow and learn from each other. Quite like whee learn tricks, both good and naughty from each other!

Do you have much wildlife from you? Are you enjoying seeing the joys of Spring and all the baby animals learning from their pawrents?

Hope you’re having a great wheekend!

Throwback Thursday -A Little Handful!

IMG_0815

So I have always had quite a pigsonality as this pigture of me as a baby demonstrates! Here I am a literal handful and this week, two years on I have been accused of being  a metaphorical handful!

From the great t-shirt tearing trouble (you don’t want to know) to the hair-cutting-commotion of yesterday, it’s been a adventure and a half in the hutch household.

Let me tell you about the hair incident. Well to my surprise the hooman was quite unimpressed by my hair dressing skills, and I’m wondering if I should be offended.

It all started when I noticed her hair was getting a bit long and decided I should take matters into my own paws, or should I say mouth! I cuddled up to her face and neck to put her at ease, even kissing her ear, before settling down.

Then I got to work. After a couple of minutes she half turned suspiciously and said, “You’re too quiet, what are you up to?”

Then she picked me up, off her shoulder and held me in front of her. I smiled my most innocent toothy grin as a large hunk of hair fell from my mouth. Her mouth fell open and I smiled more thinking she was shocked at my amazing handiwork. “Naughty Noah.” she gasped, placing me on her lap and pulling  the remainder of a good couple of inches of her hair from my mouth.

“Naughty?” I squeaked back, outraged that she wasn’t recognising my obvious creative genius.

“Naughty!” she repeated, as she carried me back to my cage.

I watched as she held the wad of hair in her hand, “It’s so wonky…and…uneven. At least it was only a small section I suppose.” she muttered, still apparently in shock as she wandered out of the room.

I huffed. Well there’s no pleasing some people!

What’s the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done?

Hope you’re having a great day, and remember to keep me in mind if you’re ever looking to update your fur-style.

Wordless Wednesday – Can I Help You?

I’m always happy to help

Happy Wednesday efurryone, what are you doing with your day?

Whee are pleased to announce…

Noah has been given the all clear! Despite the fact they were so sure he was going to lose his eye they made the consultation we went to with the surgeon he has shown his fighting spirit and his eye is back to normal!

They did think his sight might still be affected but otherwise he is his usual naughty self again!

image

The biggest thing whee want hoomans to take from this is that quick veterinary treatment can really make all the difference for guinea pigs. Piggies are very good at hiding injuries and illness because as whee are prey animals, whee have to be! Even with going on the day of the injury to see the vet Noah still very nearly lost his eye. (Not that whee think he would have minded being a pirate piggy!!)

If you think there’s is something not quite right then it’s always best to get it checked. You can check our health check page to see if you can spot any signs that something might be wrong.

How was efurryones Valentines wheekend?

Hope you had a great one!

An Update on Noah – Whee Need Your Help

Whee are so sorry for the lack of updates. After Noah started to make an improvement he then suddenly went downhill again and looked much worse.

Another vet trip later and he has new eye drops to try to help but he really hates them. He does however still like the painkillers and takes them like a champ!
image

As you can probably see, his eye is very sore and he is not himself. So whee would like to ask you, on this soggy Saturday, please tell us your funniest animal related jokes or stories so I can try to cheer my fluffy little cagemate up

Whee hope you have a great Saturday and please keep Noah in your thoughts on Wednesday as that is when he goes back to the vets.

Well Eye Never!

Well I’m finally feeling a bit better and hooman has asked me to write a little post to let you all know! It’s amazing the trouble a little bit of hay and a scratch can do to an eye though.

So what happened…Well Mummy saw a little bit of hay on my eye during morning snuggles and cleaned it out. By the evening my eye had gone cloudy blue, was weeping and I couldn’t really see. She rushed me to the vet and by some strange coincidence another piggy had been in that day with the same injury. Unfortunately for that other little piggy their eye was so bad they had to have it removed. I am quite lucky that I have the chance to try eyedrops and painkillers.

So far Mummy has noticed an improvement in my eye. The blue colour is mostly gone and it’s no longer bloodshot. I am much more bright in myself but still a little unwell so paws crossed I am back to normal soon!

I feel like this pigture sums up how I feel right now:

How are you spending this Tuesday?

Whatever you are doing, have a great day!
