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?

Well as promised whee have put some of your questions forward to Super Nut. Of course whee cannot ask him to reveal his super secret identity but he did allow us this image of him in his costume:
Now for the questions you wanted us to ask!
Us – Hi Super Nut! It’s great to have you here on the blog today.
Super Nut – *sends a smoldering pouty look in the direction of the readers* It is great to be here.
Us – So Super Nut, our first question is . . . . How did you get your name & what makes you the most famous guinea pig super hero?
Super Nut – *cough cough* Umm did I say I was the most famous? *clears throat nervously* I . . . Well . . . Well my name actually stands for something. It’s, now you have to say this in a posh British accent to get it, Not Uh-fraid of Things! Get it? Okay well my spelling wasn’t so great and . . . Yeah. Next question.
Us – Alright then. Next question is; Do you fly to the rescue? Is that fun?
Super Nut – *chuckles* Yes I do fly to the rescue and it is so much fun I sometimes fly around just to enjoy myself!
Us – Whee love this question. When you fly through the clouds, do you taste them? If you do, what do they taste like?
Super Nut – I’ve got to say that is an awesome question. Actually I have tasted clouds and they are not as nice as they look. Think melted snowflakes. Not nice, and that stuff can really give you frizzy fur!
Us – Is it OK to fly after eating a big meal?
Super Nut – Well it is okay but not recommended as I found out to my cost when I lost my salad leaves over Tower Bridge once. Not a pretty sight. Luckily the commuters blamed the pigeons!
Us – An odd one now! Does Super Nut wear his underpants on the outside of his tights?
Super Nut – Oh that is an odd one. Firstly I wonder how I would fit in tights or wear underpants?! I do have a very nice leotard which is very masculine and boarly and has never ever led to me being mistaken for a ballet dancer. Ever.
Us – A little defensive aren’t whee?! 😉 Next whee would like to know, are you required to change into your cloak and hood in a telephone booth, or if you are able to do so in any other place?
Super Nut – Actually I can change pretty much anywhere. Dash behind a bush or tree or lamp post or hooman. They never pay much attention until I’m in costume. And contrary to popular belief these costumes are highly uncomfortable and take some time to get in and out of!
Us – Can Super Nut leap over tall buildings (or cardboard boxes) in a single bound?
Super Nut – Of course! Who cannot?! Hutches, cages, magazine racks, the telly. What’s that? The sofa?! Don’t be ridiculous!
Us – Do you have a wardrobe of super capes and masks so you can send the blue/red outfit to the cleaners from time to time?
Super Nut – Actually I have a variety of spares and wear them on a cycle. Unfortunately I just got laser burns on one so I need to buy more!
Us – One for the ladies now! Do you have a girlfriend too like the “Lois Lane” ? And whee will combine this with another reader’s question of; Are you married?
Super Nut – *waggles eyebrows* Wouldn’t you like to know! Alright alright. Currently there aren’t any ladies in my life! 😦 A hectic world saving work means a lot of strain on a relationship. *looks sorrowfully at readers*
Us – Next whee want to know, is Super Nut is a lone hero or does he have a side kick like Batman had Robin?
Super Nut – Currently I am a lone hero. But I am in the market for a sidekick.
Us – Ooooooh how would you like a little help with that?!
Super Nut – I am intrigued! Alright How?
Us – Readers, bloggers, furfriends. How would you like to be Super Nut’s sidekick? Joining him in crime fighting from The Nut Cave?
You would?! Great. All you need to do is come up with a superhero name and send a pigture of yourself either in costume (photoshopped or real) or au natrual to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Use the subject ‘Super Sidekick’ and please make sure all pigtures are jpegs! You have until midday (Uk time) Monday 3rd December because Super Nut has a special mission to jet off on then.
Whee will have Super Nut choose his favourite and announce it hopefully that evening. So roll out the capes, pull up your big girl pants and slap on those masks . . . It’s world saving time!

When she made no move to do the normal hooman thing of going to the toilet I examined her movements more closely and realised she was dancing. Strange though it was I squeaked at her to explain herself. She picked me up (I had been running around the living room enjoying floor time) and began to explain.
All over the world there are animals who do not have and will not have a safe, loving home this Pigmass. Whee cannot help all of them or take all of them in (no matter how much whee might want to!) but whee can do a little something for a few guinea pigs in a UK rescue thanks to a wonderful idea run by some incredibly kind and generous individuals on a guinea pig forum whee adore. Secret Santa.
The idea is this: you send your name and say you would like to be paired up with a piggy (unfortunately it is all closed up now but whee managed to enter in time!) then you wait for them to pair you up! Today Mummy recieved the message saying which piggies whee were paired with.
They do include this:
“Please note: secret santas are anononmous! so don’t tell anyone! ”
Sorry guys but whee cannot reveal our piggies! Suffice to say whee did a little research and they are bootiful!
Mummy says she will shop for them tomorrow and she cannot wait. Whee have reminded her not to forget us! I did point out that the piggies are gorgeous . . . And I am gorgeous . . . And who wouldn’t want to unwrap me on Pigmass morning but she loves me to much to give me away, even for a good cause. *sigh* Sorry Ladies (and/or Gentlepigs!), I tried!
Now you are out of time to join in this secret santa but whee do have a little plan to help spread Pigmass cheer.
Why not find out where your local shelter is and see what they need. Blankets, towels, shampoos and toys are almosts always welcome. Then get your hooman to do a little Pigmass shopping and package up whatever you can get. After that you can write a little note or use this one:
There is ice on the ground,
And a chill in the air,
But luckily for you,
We have warmth to spare.
It may not be much,
But I hope it brightens up your day,
And makes lives better this Christmas,
That’s all I hope and I pray.
Tuck that in and send it on it’s way. You may not recieve any thanks. In fact if you do it properly and don’t tell anyfurry then you won’t but the feeling of warm fuzzies and Pigmass cheer will make you feel ten paws tall!
So why not try it. Presents can be big or small, money or packages, whatever you can give. Make a pet’s Pigmass!
Our new addition, Baby Basil, has surprised me. As with when Nutty arrived to be my new companion, I find myself bouncing around the cage more. Squeaking a little louder. Being more friendly. (Not like Buddy who is struggling to get more than a few minutes sleep at once and is too exhausted to play all the time. Though he did some very impressive zoomies today!)
It is as though he has rubbed off on me! I am quite an elderly gentlepig now so to behave this way is quite peculiar. I haven’t even really met him. Whee just squeak at each other across the garden or the living room.
Nutty appears quite jealous really! Mummy always used to call him Baby Nut but now his middle is no longer ‘widdle’ he cannot really be consider a baby. He is far more like a stroppy teenager, rumbling around the cage and complaining loudly should someone ignore him for longer than three seconds.
Mummy is careful to give us equal attention (well I would expect no less!) but this isn’t enough for Nutty. I am seriously considering the advice giving to Buddy on handling Basil and sitting on Nutty until he calms down and listens.
I may not be a spring chicken but with my newfound bouncy-popcorning, there is life in this old piggy yet!
