  1. el senor cuy has very cute foldey ears, but I feel bad about mock-nomming heem

    in other news, bleck blehh ptooey! cilantro tastes like soap 😦

  2. LUV how the stem is sittin over to one corner of his mouf.
    Kinda looks like a grumpy, no-nonsense cowboy, chawin’ on a stem of hay at the General Store ….

  3. Have you noticed that peegs are one of the few anipals who have fur ON their nose.
    I had one as a girl and used to love when she’d stick her nose in the crook of my arm and fall asleep because it was warm not cold like my dog’s nose.

    Sorry Miss Peeggy, you know that salad dressing is not allowed on a white couch.

  5. Ugh. I can’t stand cilantro, either. Too bitter.

    And I’m not this cute and ear-foldy, either. 😦

  6. But Ranch dressing is white it’s not like she’s asking for Catalina. 😉

  7. Not cute! They’re inflicting cilantro upon that poor, innocent piggie! Cruelty!


  9. PLEH!

  10. Mmmm yummy cilantro!

  11. I just want to say: ‘Ira’ is a great name for a guinea pig.

    McPeegersons! So cute

  14. It does! It does taste like soap!

    The NY Times published this article:

    “Flavor chemists have found that cilantro aroma is created by a half-dozen or so substances, and most of these are modified fragments of fat molecules called aldehydes. The same or similar aldehydes are also found in soaps and lotions and the bug family of insects.”
