New Additions

Posted on

From this morning our little household has grown from four to six with the addition of two lovely baby guinea pigs. Many many years ago when I was still in primary school I wanted pet guinea pigs. I wanted them so bad that I used to beg my parents to get some for me but to no avail. Even tears and tantrums were ineffective against my parents steely willpower. To console myself for not having pet guinea pigs I bought books about guinea pigs and played with friends guinea pigs and even made a clay guinea pig in art class. Yet it was never the same as having my very own pet guinea pigs.

So today Mr T, Miss M & I went for a road trip across town to the Cavy CottageΒ to pick out some new additions.Β And so, with no further ado, I’d like to introduce you to our very first family pets:

Smokey and Dusty are eight week old brothers. That’s Dusty at the front he’s the more adventurous one and less comfortable with people. Smokey is hiding at the back and seems to be the more docile one (he’s easier to catch and seems to be quite content being held).

Mum promised that when I bought a house she would buy them for me and she has, to some extent, come good on that promise as we used our Christmas voucher to purchase their new abode. Thanks Mum! xx

  1. Nice one folks! We saw the craziest guinea pigs in Canada, so cute. Never have I seen creatures so thankful for lettuce. Lots of love Matt and Lauren.

  2. Are your sure that they are borthers as many mistakes have been made and the first you know of is when dusty is preggers and you have a dozen more.
    Would that then make them your Grand kids and Mrs M and Mr R bwould then be a Great Granny and Great Grandpa
    He He

    • Actually I haven’t checked Kenny. We are living in blissful ignorance and hoping that we don’t go out one day to find our brood has multiplied. I am far far to young to be becoming a grandmother.

  3. Aww how cute! I know exactly how you feel, I always wanted a bird but mum never let us have one 😦 There are so many hidden benefits of having your own house haha

    • Naww, so do you still want a bird? We’re planning on getting some chickens down the track – fresh eggs for us and manure for the garden. The house ownership definitely has some bonuses, too many to list here actually. It’s been a really really good decision so far πŸ™‚

      • Yeah I still want a bird πŸ™‚ I mean, we had chickens & ducks and stuff but they were never interactive enough for my liking. Chooks are totally worth it though, to have your own eggs πŸ˜€

  4. mmmmm not exactly the lawn mower we were thinking of but definitely much cuter.Congratulations on your new additions.
