I don’t think i’ve properly introduced two of my favourite boys to you here on my blog. Pippin and Percy.
They came into my life in January of this year as teeny little balls of fluff that have now grown into bigger balls of fluff. SO FLUFFY. I have always loved guinea pigs since I was a little girl. There’s something about them that I have always been attached to. I always felt that anything smaller than a guinea pig was a bit skittish, and i’d be scared i’d lose it or hold it, and I once had a bad experience with a rabbit as it scratched my arms until they were both red raw when I was trying to cuddle it. Guinea pigs have a cute temperament. They will sit on your lap, they’ll run about an play and they’ll fall asleep on you and squeak at you for food. They are really friendly and find that their characteristics are so hilarious. Having had them for 7 months I can now distinguish the differences between the two personalities which I love.

Pippin is the one with the brown ear and long hair at the back. He is a little more laid back, like the older brother of the two. He is very clever and can usually suss out when I want to take him out the cage and hide in that one spot where it’s the hardest to get him. He knows the noise of my footsteps in the morning and squeaks for food and waits by the gate. He is also a little softy and is the least likely to nip anyones finger if it was put into his mouth. He mostly licks. I think it’s because he knows it’s not food, he’s a clever one.

Percy is like the naughty younger brother who is more adventurous. He has the loudest squeak, and is much more of a fidget. Although he much prefers cuddle time and will curl up and sleep on me, whereas Pippin will just sit and watch the world go by. He is the first one to run up the stairs when I fill the food bowl and gets the most excited for everything, although he will also nip you if you poke your finger near his mouth as he will think it’s food. He also got stuck behind a dishwasher at one point so he isn’t the smartest crayon in the box, but I love him.

I love having them scattering around in their hutch and listening to them squeaking away every day. They are so cute and I love them both so much.

If you ever want to see more of them, let me know in the comments and i’ll do more blogposts

    Your Guinea pigs are so cute!! Sadly my Guinea pig, Scruffy had to be put down today and now the other one, Cutie is all on his own. We bought Scruff as a replacement Guinea pig for Cutie because his brother Pipsqeak had died of heat stroke while they were both still quite young. And now Cutie is on his own again 😔

    I longed for guinea pigs and I got them on 14 February 2012 (yes valentines day!) One was black and white and it was called Iggy (we got them second hand) the other ginger and white and called Messi. Iggy died last week and Messi died two days after him. I miss them sooo much!

    Hey Zoe! I would really love to see more about Pippin and Percy, especially what you feed them, their cage, and maybe their bedding set up. I’m interested in getting some guinea pigs and I think you might have some awesome tips for us! xx

  • Rebecca Bentley

    I’ve got two guinea pigs called chip and dale and chip looks quite similar to you two guineas.mine also have completely different personalities, chip is more confident and definitely squeaks the loudest while dale is alot quieter but loves cuddles.

  • Tiara

    Please do more about ginea pigs or even a video on YouTube because I’m thinking of getting one soon

  • mollie copeland

    I have two rabbits called Tom and Jerry. Tom is easily more irritating as he escapes often but he is more laid back. He is also calm if you cuddle him. Jerry is always the first to the food and is more energetic as he races around the cage all hours of the day. He also struggles a lot if you try to cuddle him.

  • Faith Smith
