My favourite photos

As this is just the first baby steps for my new blog, I thought I'd post some of my favourite photos of my guinea pigs, past and present.

Here we have one of Custard's sisters, 'Sophie' hanging out in their old cage at our last house. She lived a long life, and only passed away a month or so ago at over 4 years old.

This is one of Custard's sisters, 'Sweep'. She got taken by a neighbourhood cat last year. She was so beautiful.

These two were 'bonus' piggies! I purchased their mum, a baby herself, from a pet shop, only to realise a few days later that her belly was moving! About a month after that she gave birth to these two gorgeous little girls, 'Milk' and 'Mondi'. Mondi was a satin throwback - very stunning. They found a new home with a co-worker's little brother.

These are all of our girls eating watermellon. From left to right we have Fifi, Sweep, Bundy, Sophie and Custard. The four fluffy girls are the babies-in-the-bowl in the picture at the top of this blog.

This is Custard (still alive and kicking!) and her sister 'Bundy' running free range at our last house. Unfortunately Bundy was attacked by a cat and had to be put down at the vet. After her death none of the piggies were able to run free range again after being able to do it for the whole of their lives - over 3 years! It was very sad.

This is Bundy as a little baby. From memory she was about 1-2 days old here. Such a sweetheart!

This is Bundy saying hello to baby 'Milk'.

And this is Custard jumping out of her old cage to have a bit of a run. Those 3 years of free range were so much fun, for them and for us!
