First whee are going to play a little game with you that our Mummy calls ‘good news, bad news’.
Whee will start with something easy.
Good news . . . Whee are entered in two competitions whee would love for you to vote for us in. Bad news . . . It will take some of your time and one needs a facebook account.
The other contest is with our local newspaper! Please vote Basil (ME!) as the cutest pet by clicking here and using your facebook account (if you have one). It would mean a lot!
Now to the horrible bit. Good news is . . . whee are alive and phsyically fine. Bad news is . . . Well it’s hard to know how to put it so I’ll just tell you the story from my point of view.
It was a little after midnight. The hoomans were in bed. Buddy was in a hay nest sleeping in a pigloo. I could hear Nibbles snoring. When all of a sudden there was a very loud dull boom that made the whole house shake. I dashed to Buddy side and whee both looked around frantically in the dark. It was then I saw it wasn’t fully dark. Orange light seeped under the curtains. I relaxed. Hoomans car machines have headlight that colour. There was a strange whoosh and pop noise like fireworks and I glanced at Buddy. This wasn’t normal. I heard noises upstairs and Mummy coming down them. (I always recognise my source of carrots footsteps!) She reached the bottom of the stairs and stepped toward the front door and whee could see her through the living room doorway (Whee live in the living room by the way!). All of a sudden she stumbled back and screamed something. A word whee recognised.
But whee know fire. It sits nicely in our fireplace and makes the house toasty on cold nights. Mummy dashed back up the stairs screaming at everyone to wake up. Then came running back down to us. She leaned over our cage to look out and whee saw the fire. Huge flames all over a hooman car machine outside. This fire wasn’t well behaved. It was greedily reaching for everything nearby. Hoomans were outside their hutches and really scared. Mummy and her Mummy, with the help of the little hoomans, lifted our cages and carried us into the quiet of the kitchen. Mummy was on her phone calling 999 to come and save us.
Efurryone was shaking and frightened. A loud siren split through the air and whee panicked and tried to hide again. But the hoomans seemed relieved by this extra noise.
Mummy explained that they were the fire brigade and they had come to put out that naughty fire that belong in a fireplace not a car. She said they think somebody did it on purpose. Whee don’t know why.
Our furmily had to spend a long time clearing up glass from all over the front of our house. Our neighbour Mrs Old-Lady was really frightened and our little hoomans needed lots of hugs before they were brave enough to go to bed tonight. It’s really mean of somefurry to do that. Whee are still a bit shaky as is Mummy. It was just really loud and bright. Why would anyfurry do this? Hoomans are strange and sometimes very stupid creatures.
After much deliberation (and snack breaks and arguing!) whee have chosen a winner. This poem was written by Carmeline, Lola, Mina and Lily the piggies with a small amount of help from their hooman slave! Whee are pretty sure you will agree this fab potion poem is a very deserving winner!
Blade of grass and root of beet,
Top of carrot, corn so sweet,
Hurry up! We need a treat,
Fill our bowl with things to eat.
Nice fresh grass and dandelion,
Picked by hand with dew still on ’em,
Crunchy pepper, green or red,
Come on, fill the bowl, we said.
Nice lush grass so tasty and green,
The biggest tomato we’ve ever seen,
A piece of fresh apple, to share between four,
Quickly our slave, we still want some more.
Lots more grass and celery stem,
A sizeable piece of banana skin,
Fill the bowl slave, you know what to do,
Feed us with love, for we do so love you!
Well bootiful ladypigs, firstly congratulations! Secondly, if you could drop our Mummy an email with your hutch address and with pigtures of each of you attached as jpegs, whee have a prize bundle to make up and send to you!
Have a great Pigoween efurryone. Why not tell us in the comments what you have been up to?!
Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil
PS. Whee will check efurryones blogs as soon as whee can!
PPS. Hope efurryone got through the Frankenstorm safely.
So Mummy has agreed that this year I will get to dress up for Pigoween and she will let me scare the trick or treaters! In preparation (and inspired by a discussion with Sammy from one spoiled cat) I have created some mock ups of possible costume designs, themes and ideas!
If you guys could be the fabulous honest furfriends I know you are and comment which is your favourite (if you don’t like any then tell me that too!) then I would be really really grateful!
Also, don’t forget to send in pigtures of your costumes to firstname.lastname@example.org for the Cavy Crypt Costumes Pet photo contest. Skip back to the post before last to see more details, particularly if you have no idea what I am on about!
Anyway be truthful guys! 😉
When the moon’s an orb,
Of glowing white,
In darkest depths,
Of the deadest night,
This way comes,
They call this place,
A Creepy Cavy Crypt,
Though there are rumors abound,
Residents remain tight-lipped!
Whee call on friends,
Of the blogosphere,
To join us there,
And feel no fear.
Wear your scariest,
Outfit and face,
And then you won’t,
Look out of place.
Send your pigture to us,
In jpeg form,
And before Pigoween,
A winner shall be born.
Yes, whee are pleased to announce our newest Spooktober ComPIGtition! The Cavy Crypt Pets Photo Contest! For this you need to send us a pigture of yourself (or your pet), in an outfit or with a scary enough face that you will blend in at a graveyard pawty! Any pet can enter; fish or furry, feathered or scaly!
The pigture must be a jpeg form when you email it to us email@example.com with the title Cavy Crypt Contest and the name of you pet, creepified! If you are with a blog please include that there too!
You can use edits to decorate pigtures but you don’t have to. Only one entry per pet.
