So you may or may not know but Buddy has a very naughty habit of tipping the food bowl over and throwing it all over the cage. Not only is this messy and means the cages needs cleaning out more reguarly but also, Basil doesn’t like eating food that has been on the floor so he has been going hungry.
I have searched and search for a solution and I have found it in the Stay Bowl! Initially it sounded like a bit of a gimmick. A bowl that is tip proof? Sure…
But for $9.95 (which roughly £6.80) where was the harm in giving it a try?
So it didn’t take too long and arrived with a lovely note.
The size was good. A lot of people tend to over feed their piggies but these bowls allow for good portion control. So I filled it up, put it in and kept my fingers crossed!
Buddy had a good go a trying to bite the edges and tip it over. At one point a worried Basil stepped on it to keep it in place!
But true to it’s promise the stay bowl, stayed upright!
So what are my thoughts?
Price: Great, pretty much the same price a good quality normal bowl
Appearance: The blue was great and matches their cage. It actually holds more than it looks and can contain the perfect portion size.
Thoughts: It actually works! It’s been four days since we started using the stay bowl and so far no spills or messes made!
Rating: 10 paws up out of 10!
Buddy disagrees and wants to give it a much lower rating…
I guess he’s going to have to find another naughty habit to wind us all up!
Have you got a product that you love that solved a problem for you? Any products you’d recommend for piggies?
Have a great Saturday
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?
Mummy said of all the things she saw and did on holiday, one thing stood out. A trip to the beach for the day. But this wasn’t just any day out at the seaside . . . On the stretch of coast next to the village of Horsey is a place known as Horsey Dunes. This is a major wildlife site perhaps best known because of the huge numbers of grey seals on Horsey Beach.
Yes, Mummy visited a beach and was stunned to see some wild seals, up close and personal!!
The above pigture was a close as Mummy got but using the great zoom on her camera she could capture some closer portraits of these sweet creatures.
One little one made Mummy laugh as it posed in the water, only to be hit in the back by a huge wave!
Little moments like this inspire our Mummy so much. Mother Nature and animals are things whee can all love, appreciate and protect. She says she could have sat there all day and all night. If you want to find out more about the seals of Horsey you can take a look at the page Friends of Horsey Seals, which contains some brilliant facts. Did you know that around half of the world’s grey seal population is found in Britain?!
Do you have fascinating local wildlife? What’s you favourite piece of Mother Nature?
Have a great day efurryone

You are probably wondering about the strange title. As you know whee guinea pigs don’t have tails as whee have evolved to not need them. BUT our friend Tufty has one. Tufty is a squirrel who visits places round us quite often. He needs his tail for balance but whee are furry jealous. Whee wish whee had tails. So whee got Mummy to take pigtures of Tufty for us to look at.
Mummy says whee are adorable just the way whee are but sometimes you cannot help the green eyed monster!
What are you jealous of? Is there something or someone that you wish you were like?
Have a Thursday

Whee have all been talking about wanting Spring to hurry up and arrive and stay fur awhile now. Though the weather can still be a little cold whee are seeing the first signs of spring in tulips and other flowers in the garden. Whee were also thrilled to discover that our little curled parsley plant survived the winter! So whee got to enjoy some fresh parsley in during our garden time yesterday. Here are some pigtures
Have you noticed any new signs that Spring is on the way where you are?
Happy Flowery Friday efurryone!
Well Mummy was having a little look at her stats to see what people are searching for that brings them here.
The great part is, the majority are searching the blog name and finding us. Other searches include “help, my guinea pig has heat stroke” “my guinea pig is sick, what should i do” “guinea pig first aid kit” “homemade guinea pig toys” “what to give bored guinea pigs” and “try to stay mad at these adorable faces”
All very cute and normal, but then there are some strange one’s that made Mummy pull faces and wonder how on Earth they ended up here!
A few of our favourites include:
“if men had tails like dogs do name something that would cause them to wag“ – But hoomans don’t has tails . . . I suppose they would wag if they saw a cute piggy though.
“i just smile becuase [sic] i have no idea what you are saying pics“ – Often whee don’t know what the hoomans are on about. They say you should humor the insane though!
“mummy pumpkins“ – Daddy pumpkins, Auntie pumpkins, Uncle pumpkins and baby pumpkins?
“i like pig butts and i can not lie“ – Those skinny piggies can’t deny!
“how to prevent a deck from being slick when wet“ – What . . . ? Just what?! Put some hay on it whee guess.
“disney crows shoe fly“ – Erm. Well whee like the Disney bit but you lost us after that!
“why piggy not happy“ – Because hooman no make good grammar right.
“guenea[sic] pig addiction to basil“ – That’s easy to understand, I’m addicted to me too ~Basil
“please may i“ – May you what? Dance a jig for our entertainment? Certainly.
“little rodent like creature with face like pig“ – Nope, whee got no idea what that could be . . .
“doing nothing mission accomplished“ – *cough* Our every day plan *cough*
“look into my eyes you will see tumblr“ – *squints* Nope, whee just see eyes. No Tumblr in there
“whoever says they slept lik [sic] a baby obvioysly[sic] dlesnt[sic] have one“ – Well that’s not at all bitter! Lack of sleep impairs one’s ability to type (Mummy feels for you!)
“babes bauddy[sic]“ – Can’t decide if they are searching for Buddy’s Babes or something else entirely and really can’t spell!
“amazing feet awards“ – Whee do have nice feet! What do whee win?!
“how to huch[sic] a teddy real good“ – Is it just our immature Mummy sniggering or does this sound really wrong?!! ^_^
“poop through feathers“ – Whee don’t have feathers . . . let alone any poop through them!
“more+rounded”.+skinny+girls+are+good+as+ramp+models+but“ – You really didn’t plan to end up on a guinea pig blog did you my friend?!
“why is it i have no idea on what’s going on around“ – Whee ask ourselves the very same thing. One of life’s mysteries whee suppose!
“a song that says it’s like bing bing bing bing it’s like woo woo woo woo“ – Whee don’t know it but it makes us wanna dance!
“santa tells me if i’m nutty or nice“ – I’m Nutty and nice . . . s’all good! ~Nutty
“as charming as you are, you are unlikely ever to receive a better valentine“ – Wow, harsh. How did that get you to us? Should whee be insulted?!
So there you go. A selection of crazy from the very weird searches that led hoomans here! Why not check your stats and let us know the weirdest searches that brought hoomans to your blog?! Give us a good giggle!
Smile this Saturday

After a long night pawtying, and keeping the hoomans up by knocking the water bottle off his cage and throwing things around multiple times (being surprisingly noisy!), one little piggy didn’t really enjoy the early morning run in the sunshine . . .
Our hoomans revenge! Can you guess which piggy it is!
