Hello everybody. Happy Easter from me, Percy, and all the others here at George’s Guinea Pig World.
We had a nice couple of days last week and Mummy brought us in a little bit of grass on one of them. She said the grass isn’t growing as much as it did before the snow, though. And then, guess what? It snowed again last night! It turned to rain agin, but it’s still too cold out there for us to go outside.
Mummy’s been very busy cleaning and tidying. She stands by her box of paper and tears it up for hours on end, then she takes the box downstairs and comes back with it all empty. Then she fills it up again. It’s funny to watch her, but I suppose it’s a bit like eating hay. As soon as you finish, more arrives.
I’ve stopped taking my metacam for a bit. Mummy says there’s no sign of my lump, and if it comes back I can have the metacam again. I’m having the nutrimed instead, which is also supposed to help keep the lump down. Nutrimed is better for me because it’s not so strong and better for my kidneys. But sometimes metacam is the right thing to have, and sometimes nutrimed is better. I’m happy if Mummy’s happy. She’s giving me and Midge both a Joint Support tablet in the evening, and I think that is doing both of us good. Midge seems much less grouchy now he’s having that. It has something called glucosamine in it, and it’s good for our joints. This is Kevin with the Joint Support bottle.
Bertie gets very jealous if he doesn’t have something, so Mummy gives him a few pellets of our Pro-Fibre. He loves them! Well, so do we. We have a small scoop each in the evening. It helps our digestion. Midge likes them because it means we’ve got more in our foodbowl. He loves eating out of his food bowl. I do too, but not as much as Midge does.
Anyway, we’re all well, and everyone downstairs is fine, too. I know, because I usually get to have a quick chat to Neville in the morning before Mummy puts me back after my run. See you in a couple of weeks.
