  1. I love guinea pigs. They make such distinctive fwee noises and I can too, so we always seemed to get along great.

  2. Seriously cute ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. And did you notice there were six words in the title? Debs will be proud ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Cute little fellas and I’m all agog to hear the noises, Sue. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. How sweet! My best friend used to have a guinea pig too when we were children.

  5. Very cute Sue. A great square and Iโ€™m looking forward to hearing the noises!
    Mind you, Iโ€™ve never had a guinea pig and wonโ€™t be able to judge your accuracy.

  6. Ah, that takes me back. I had a long-haired Sheltie guinea pig in the late 1970s. I named him Oskar, after the boy in ‘The Tin Drum’. I could never imitate his cute noise, but I loved to hear it. He lived in an huge old fish tank indoors during the winter, and in a purpose-built hutch outside, in warm weather. I lived at number 8, and he had his own brass hutch number too, 8A, I used to take him to the Vet to have his nails clipped, and when he lived to be over seven years old, the Vet told me he had never known a guinea pig with such longevity.
    He still lies buried in that Wimbledon garden.
    (And I nearly forgot. Nice Cavy shots!)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Awww. Guinea pigs were part of my childhood too. Not mine, but my brother’s, but he used to pay me to clean them out ๐Ÿ˜€ I (and he) were devastated when a dog attacked their hutch and killed the mother who was defending her babies.

  8. Mine was called Pippin, from around the same era as your photo I’d guess (1970’s)?

  10. beloved by my too – lovely to see them all squared up

  11. Aren’t Guinea Pigs associated in some way with most people’s childhood? ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I love pinny gigs, when I was little and mine had babies, I sold them to the pet shop!
