Me and my piggies!

Hello. My name is Romy and I am seven years old. I am home educated. I love guinea pigs. This is my blog about my six piggies and what they get up to. I am doing it all by myself.

Runnig about and swapping cages!

Today Toby learnt to jump into the babies' cage. Also when we got home from Taekwondo Little Frosty was in the biggies cage! It looks like they'll be playing musical cages from now on :o)Here are the guinea pigs weights today. I weighed them all one by one.
Frosty = 350g
Zippy = 600g
Mac = 600g
Scrappy = 640g
Toby = 900g
Willow = 1500g


A normal male guinea pig should weigh between 900 and 1200g. So Toby is perfect size but Willow is too big. The other ones are still growing. I worked out for my maths today that Willow weighs the same as Toby and Mac or Zippy put together!! Frosty is very little and cute. He has a funny shaped head. He looks like Stuart Little!

Hello to my new guinea pigs!

On Sunday we went to a guinea pig show and we bought some guinea pigs. Mac, Zippy, and Frosty. We had three others already! Willow, Toby and Scrappy. We used to have two other piggies; Pippy and Squeaky, but they died :o( Here are some pictures of them all.

Scrappy. (He bites!)


Willow. (He's very big. He weighs 1.5 KG!!!)


Toby (Looking cute!)


All six piggies getting to know each other :o)


Mac. (He's the prettiest. We have to brush him twice a day.)


Zippy. (He runs very fast!)


Frosty. (He's a little cute baby.)

I am going to use this blog as a diary about my guinea pigs. Today they all ran around in the dining room together. But Scrappy went back in his cage and sulked. I think he's sad that he's not the baby any more. Here is a picture of Pippy and Squeaky. I still love them.
