Three Little Piggies - My New Friends

Hi Pals,

I has three new piggie friends - he he - not the farm kind of piggie, but these are cute little Guinea Pigs.    

M first became acquainted with "Crippie's Corner" a couple of months ago while researching some things on Parkinson's and took an instant liking to "Crippie" once she started reading this young lady's bloggy.   No, Crippie doesn't have PD but she does have another handicapping condition.   M says Crippie is one of her blogging inspiration friends.   

It just so happens Crippie has some little Guinea Pigs that are so adorable that I'd love to give them a nose tap.   I think they would be fun to play with (keep in mind that I has no toothies or front claws so I couldn't really hurt them.)

Yesterday Crippie published very helpful information regarding the care of Guinea Pigs.   These were things I never knew and I has never seen this information published in a blog before.  They are also things that I think every ooman should read before they decide to get a Guinea Pig - just like oomans need  to research what it's like to have a doggy or kitty or bunny. They are more than just cute, little, adorable critters - they are living, breathing animals who need special care and equipment and attention.   

Please take a minute to read all about Guinea Pigs in Crippie's Corner and maybe even bookmark the page so you can pass the information on to someone who might be thinking about getting a Guinea Pig.   You'll love Crippie too, and she certainly knows all about Guinea Pigs.

Stay warm pals - it's freezing in WI.

Mom thinks Guinea Pigs have such cute fur, the way sometimes it looks like somebody licked them backwards. One of her favorite books to read to her little kids years ago was about Guinea Pig Podge.

Hey, Mario, I love how you always think of others. The info on guinea pigs is so important for people to know. We have fun finding other blogs, too, but don't go around too often.

Happy Saturday, my furriend!

pee ess: It's wicked cold here, too.

We have never had a guinea pig but they sure look like fun. We will have to go read all about them. Thanks for telling us about these little animals.Take care.

How cute! I just LOVE guinea pigs! I will go read more about piggies now!

I'm always looking for a way to get our old kitty, Chairman Meow (aka Kitty) to play. He'll be turning 18 in March - and our vet said he's the best looking 18 year old she's seen in a long while. Which is good news for us.

Stopping by on the blog hop today - I posted a great rescue of a raccoon named Harbor - get your hanky out as you see his first reaction to freedom. That's why I just love animal rescuers!

Awww, Guinea Pigs are adorable. TW loves ferrets too. We'd have one but Pop doesn't like them cos he says they're rats. I'll check in on your new pals.

I hope you are having a wonderful day Mario!

My brother kept guinea pigs as pets when we were growing up. One minute he had two, the next, 15!!! They are cute little things :)

Tamago said...

I love Guinea Pigs, they are so cute!!
I agree with you that they are more than just a cute critters, we need to do learn about them to give an appropriate care.
It's getting cold here in the south, too. Stay warm and have a wonderful weekend!!

I would love to have a play date with you, my hobbies include eating and watching chick flicks.

I wonder what the boys would do with a pet guinea pig... Guess we better not test that out yet...HEE HEE

Have a great day.

Ooh I bet my brofurs would have fun with those piggies. We've been reading Crippie since you mentioned them in another posting. What an inspiratrional story.

Dude, We have a same kind of the friend and we do flirting to the same ladycat. I wonder is it wicked ? we are a good friend : )

Oui Oui said...

Those little piggies are so cute, but they would probably be safer at a different house than ours! We'll have to go over and visit them...that's safe for everyone!

Clooney said...
