He loves attending ‘pignics’ with his friends. Boston strong! (P.S. regarding the ‘Benny’ link above: ‘Wheek.it‘ is a URL shortening site that supports guinea pig rescues with every click from a Wheek.it URL. Wheek wheek!” – Cuteporter Susan R.

Nikki K., what say you? “You HAVE to see this completely redonk eBay listing my vet’s office shared with me. There are a bunch of photos on the listing! This is a charity auction listing on eBay for a hand-made Guinea pig-sized chain mail and helmet to benefit the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue“: Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? This hand-made scale-mail and tiny steel helmet will keep your guinea pig protected and secure in all situations. The scale-mail is made from polished steel scales and steel rings. It was painstakingly “woven” by me over several weeks in an effort to better prepare my guinea pig Lucky for the dangers of the modern world. The helmet was purchased at a Renaissance Faire later as it was the perfect finishing touch. (Only 5 4 3 2 days left!)

Let’s Celebrate THE PIG

Twix a.k.a. Twixie a.k.a. Miss Wiggly a.k.a Wiggle Worm, etc., etc.

Super Nicknamer and Guinea Pig Mom, Cristie H. writes, “Hi! About a month ago our little wiggle worm/cuddle puddle/snorfmeister, Twix, had a pretty risky surgery to remove an infected mass from her abdomen. Luckily she pulled through the first surgery but lingering infection and damaged tissue made a second surgery necessary. So last Thursday Miss Wiggly had her second surgery. Twixie did really well and is on the mend with lots of fruits and veggies to encourage her healthy appetite. Since then Lady Wiggles Von Wiggleton has been much more chipper and fiesty! She’s still being tube fed to help keep her weight up so the huge mixing bowl helps to keep her from throwing her butt into reverse and escaping my clutches.”

“I’ve been a huge fan and daily reader of Cute Overload for years. Keep up the great work you fabulous internetters! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the pictures!” – Cristie H. (mama pig), Kyle (papa pig) and Twix!

Note to self: Use “internetters” more often.

Interview With The Guinea Pig

Prime takeaway from this interview: toilet paper is not just for your bum. It’s soft & chewy.
