A Piggy Interlude #1

An earlier conversation…

Fern: Thank you for cleaning out our cage, giving us new fleeces to snuggle on and tasty noms to devour.

Me: You’re very welcome Fern.

Fern: Let me demonstrate my continued gratitude to you by chewing on your jumper; I’m fully aware it’s your favourite.

Me: (sigh)

My gorgeous guinea pigs

The girls have now claimed the leopard print dressing gown and like me to make it into a nest so they can sit on the desk next to me as I work. I wish I had the ability to re-fashion it into a fabulous piggy palace but as I barely manage to sew buttons on, this isn’t going to happen!

Instead, they’ve been promised a snuggly bed for Xmas and I’ll cut the dressing gown up and try to make a little cover.

If you’re wondering why I don’t take many pictures of Rosebud, it’s because she is still painfully shy. I only take pictures of her when she’s happy for me to do so and I never use the flash, as I know it would petrify her. ¬†Photographs don’t do her justice anyway – she even more beautiful in real life. ¬†I have no idea why she is so shy but she is getting a bit braver as time goes on. Fern, on the other hand, is an utter diva and demands to be picked up, cuddled, photographed and generally fawned over! So of course, I oblige!

I hope you enjoy these pictures of my beautiful guineas. Have a great weekend!

Look how cute I am!
