Merry Christmas

Hello, readers! I know it's been a really, really long time since we've posted. We're sorry about that. But we've come to wish you a Merry Christmas!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, readers! We are so happy, partly because we get so much food, but mostly because we get to celebrate with the humans! Here's a photo from our piggy buffet:

Finally! We got around to telling you guys about our adventure with pumpkin! Now, we should only have this food 1-2 times per week. Now, onto the results!


Hello Again!

Hello readers! We are so sorry we haven't been posting for a few weeks. It's been really busy here. Anyway, we just wanted to say hi! We hope you're having a nice day!
P.S. We'll be sharing our experience with pumpkin soon!


Happy Birthday, Bandit!

Today is my birthday! Although the humans picked me up a lot, the food's worth it.


Fall Favorites

Hello readers! I know it's been a while since we've written a post, so we were thinking of ideas, and Fluffy came up with the idea of listing a few of our favorite things in fall. We liked it, but she didn't want to get out of her cuddle cup, so I was the "model" for this post.


The Piggy Place Fall Pignic!

As you may know already, yesterday, we went to a pignic! It was very fun, and we look forward to going to another. We'll show you a few pigtures of what it was like!


We're Going to a Pignic!

Hello there, readers! It's a busy time of the year, and we piggies have been busy, too, so sorry about the absence of posts lately. Anyway, time to share the news: we're attending our first pignic!


Wheekly Guinea Pig Help...Clipping Guinea Pig Nails

Looks like it's time for another edition of Wheekly Guinea Pig Help! A few days ago, the humans gave me a "paw-dicure". I think the human version is called a manicure. Anyway, let's get started!


Back to School Wheek!

Hey readers! As may of you know, the small humans are going back to school soon! We decided to do a photoshoot for Back to School Wheek! Enjoy!


Sandy's Performance

I'm the "athletic one" of the family, meaning that I can do the most tricks. Today I've decided to show off a few of the tricks that I've learned.


Time for a Trim!

Hi readers! A few days ago, I got a fur trim. Although I don't like getting them, it does prevent yucky stuff from getting attached to my fur.


Another Update

Hi readers! If you've been wondering why we haven't been posting lately, it's because we have a conflict. We were going to notify you earlier, but our post wouldn't publish. We hope to write to you soon!

Grooming Product Review...Burt's Bees Baby Shampoo

Hi everyone! Today I'll be reviewing a baby shampoo from Burt's Bees. This baby shampoo is tear free and is safe to use on your guinea pigs.

Wheekly Guinea Pig Help...How to Bathe Your Guinea Pig

We're doing a special edition of Wheekly Guinea Pig Help! Today, I will be taking you with me while I receive a bath from my humans. I don't like getting wet, but I guess I had to get a bath one time or another.


Summer Photoshoot

Hi! Today, we worked with our humans to create a summer photoshoot! The humans didn't get the pigtures they wanted, but we gave them a good laugh with some of our bloopers.

Wheekly Guinea Pig Help...A New Addition to the Family

Today, we'll be giving humans a few tips on things not to do and what to do when you have a new piggie in the house. We've all experienced it before, and we've decided on a few tips.


Just an Update!

If you have been following this blog for a while, you may have noticed that the layout of our blog has completely changed!


Toy Product Review...Cosy Cuddle X-Tunnel

Hi! Just today, we received an exciting package that we've been waiting for. It contained a "Cosy Cuddle X-Tunnel" from an Etsy shop called TheCosyHut. We have classified it as a toy, though I've seen many of my friends taking a nap in there.
Looks promising...

I get the first sniff!

Celery, that's not how you use it!

There you go.

Oh! A strawberry!
This is quite comfy.
Well, turns out it was promising! All of us piggies liked it! And the humans are happy because they can "just stick it in the washing machine" as they put. I'm not sure what that means, but they seemed happy about it. Anyway, 5/5 piggies enjoyed this product. Thanks, TheCosyHut!


Happy 4th of July!

Right now (for us Americans) it's the 4th of July! Or Independence Day. Either way, we're very excited to celebrate this great holiday (and snatch a few extra treats)! Happy 4th of July!

Happy Birthday To...Fluffy and Olympia!

We're back, faithful readers! And we have some special news...it's our birthdays! As you may know, Olympia and I are the senior guinea pigs on the island. The humans gave us a special treat today in a private dining area.

Hello humans!
What's this? Is it...watermelon?!
Oh, it's yummy!
It is yummy!


Hey, that was my piece!

As many of you may know, watermelon is one of our favorite foods! We were very happy with our birthday present. Oh, and in case you didn't know, we're turning five, which is very exciting!

Just an Update

Hey, readers! We just wanted to let you know  that we won't be able to post for a wheek or so due to an event. Sorry about that! Thanks for reading, and we'll see you in a wheek!


Toy Product Review...Ecotrition Snak Shak Acitivity Log

Today we're going to test out a product that really could be classified as a toy, hideaway product, or even a food (you can chew on it). Even though this is edible, it's not good to have all the time, but it's okay every so often . It's not extremely dangerous, though, on the other hand.

Sniff...sniff...hey, guys, check this out!

Let's take a little nibble...

Om nom nom!

As you can see, it's good for chewing. The humans particularly like that we're chewing on these because before we would chew on our cardboard boxes. Turns out, 5/5 piggies enjoyed it (for one use or another)!


Wheekly Guinea Pig Help...How to Properly Pick up a Guinea Pig

Hello readers! Today, I, Celery, am going to tell new owners how to properly pick up a guinea pig. Many of you probably know how already, but it never hurts to tell new owners.
Tip: Don't scare us piggies! We're prey animals in the wild, so we get scared when some human suddenly grabs us or grabs our scruff.

  1. Put your hand under our belly.
  2. Lift us up slightly.
  3. Immediately support our rump with your other hand.
  4. Make sure that we are secure.
  5. You did it!
Hope these five steps helped in learning how to pick us up! Thanks for reading!


Going to the Vet...Fluffy and Bandit

Bandit and I have been scratching a lot. A lot. The humans noticed this. Today, they put us each in a weird container with holes. We didn't like it.
Bandit...I have a bad feeling about this. I'm going to escape!

Then we were lifted up in the weird crates, and we were placed into a really big, and we mean huge, black thing. We found out that it is called a 'car'. Then, we sat for a long, long time until we finally stopped. I sniffed. My instinct was right-- we had come to the vet. We had come to Cedar Pet Clinic.
Bandit, look! There's the sign! I was right! This is bad...

We were then taken inside, where we took a deep sniff...and smelled danger.
It's Moe...this means trouble.
Thankfully, Moe didn't seem to see us. Actually, he probably didn't care. Anyway, we waited a minute or two and then were whisked away into a room a few human-steps away. Our crates were opened up, and Bandit was taken out!
I guess I'm the lucky one! I don't get to be picked up! Yay!

Well, as it turned out, I was picked up, too. The vet said that we either had mites or lice. Then Bandit and I were each taken away into a back room, where our vet, Dr. Baillie, did some work. When we were taken back into the room, he told the humans that we had mites.
Yes! Back into the room where our humans are!

Dr. Baillie gave us some medicine. It says "for puppies & kittens", but it will work for us, too. He gave us the right amount for all five of us piggies. He wanted to make sure that no one else had any mites and that it wouldn't spread. Thankfully, it wasn't a medicine that had to be injected.
Looks funny. Smells funny, too.

After that, the vet took two of our humans into the back room. He came out again, and he also showed the humans what kind of mites we have. It was a mite called Notoerdres muris. It could also be the mite pictured below. Both are supposedly extremely similar.
Bandit, that's on us! That's kinda gross...

Unfortunately for our humans, they had to clean the whole island as well as the cage and stuff. In case you haven't read our blog before, we live on a carpet that is covered by towels in the middle of the floor. We never stray onto the floor-- that's uncharted territory. 
Wow! Look how different our island looks while the humans
are cleaning it!

Thankfully, the medicine is supposed to start working within 24 hours. Thank you, Dr. Baillie, for the medicine (even if we don't like going to the vet)!


Wheekly Guinea Pig Help...Keeping Cool in Summer

It seems like forever since we've been able to write another edition of wheekly guinea pig help! I forgot to mention-- it's me, Bandit, writing. We're so excited-- it's finally summer time! This is my first summer! I believe we did a previous post on finding the right temperature to put us cavies, but today we wanted to spread some ideas around on how to keep cool during the summer time in case your air conditioner is working (or another case like that). So, let's start!
  1. Freezing Water Bottles: This is one idea that we've heard about. All you have to do is freeze some water bottles, then put them in an old sock. We've heard that some guinea pigs like to use these as pillows!
  2. Plenty of Fresh, Cool Water: This may seem like an obvious statement, but fresh, cool (not chilled) water is something that we piggies enjoy, too!
  3. Cold Tiles: Small tiles stuck in the freezer for a while can also be put in our living area (covered in a towel) to provide us with an optional source of coldness.
  4. Lettuce!: Lettuce naturally contains lots of water. You could even rinse it off in water before you give it to us to eat.

I hope you enjoyed these tips on keeping your piggies cool in summer!


Food Review...Watermelon

So, today the humans decided to give us watermelon. Of course, Olympia, Sandy, Celery, and I have all tried watermelon before because we've been with our humans for a while. On the other hand, this is Bandit's first summer (well, technically it's spring, but...)! So, here we go!
I got it!  I got it! It's all mine now...

You get the smaller piece, Olympia. Heheheh...

Save some more for me!

Okay, guys, remember, I'm the dominant pig...just a friendly

Happiness on the island...ahhh...

So, as you can see all of us loved the watermelon! By the end of the day, our chin fur was pink from eating watermelon. We forgot to mention above, we can have watermelon 1-2 times per week. Also, we like to eat the rind as well. We love it all! In case you haven't guessed yet, 5/5 piggies loved this juicy fruit!
