A is for Aunties #A2ZChallenge22

Hello, I’m Biggles.

Welcome to George’s Guinea Pig World. George isn’t here any longer, but we keep his blog going in his honour. This year Ludo, Locksley and I are blogging from A to Z about our Favourite Things.

#AtoZChallenge 2022 Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter


We don’t have favourite aunties, we love all our aunties.

There are some we know personally, like Auntie Dani, Auntie Anne, and Auntie Linda (who lives next door).

Most of them only I know, because they are in Norfolk, where I used to live. Auntie Vikki, Auntie Sophie, Auntie Rosemary, Auntie Claire, Auntie Doris (but she only visited us in Norfolk, she doesn’t live there). And Auntie Shirley, who lives in Suffolk. I think Mummy sometimes misses them. She calls them her Guinea Pig Support Network.

Then there are our online Aunties: Dawn, Tori , Noelle, and some more recent ones, like Hilary (sorry if I forgot you).

Mummy hasn’t got a big support network in Hampshire, because we moved in at the start of lockdown. And then Ludo and Locksley joined me later the same year. They’ll be blogging later in the week, so come back and meet them then.

Do you have any pets? Any guinea pigs? Any aunties?

till tomorrow…

  1. Aunties are the best! Like Grandma’s, but let you get away with more. Alas, no Guinea pigs here anymore. I do have two cats and a border collie mix who is just about 1 1/2. My human aunts didn’t live near me, so I barely knew them.

      I don’t think I know about Grandma’s. (Do I Mummy?)
      Probably not, she says. We get cats in our garden. Mostly Mummy shoos them away. Auntie Sophie has dogs that might be collie-mixes, and Mini-Auntie Bea won a rosette at Crufts for handling hers. Junior Handler class. (I don’t know, I just write what Mummy said).

    No pets right now. Our bestie kitty cat Callie left us quite a few years ago, as did our parakeet and all of our fishies.

      Oh that must be sad. I bet you miss them. Mummy sometimes says she ought to stop getting more guinea pigs, but not yet. She’s hoping I won’t go to the Rainbow Bridge for ages yet, though. She won’t get any more till after that.

      Haha – I’ve met a few large kitties online – you should see Max, of Max’s famous Adventures.
      Thanks for visiting, Tasha.

    Mummy says thanks for including her. She’s honoured to be your online Auntie.

    I don’t have any Aunties who come see me, but there are some nice online ones. I do have an Uncle Wayne who visits sometimes though, and Mummy says it would be him or Grandad who would take care of me if she and Daddy couldn’t for some reason.

    Squeak soon,

      I think we’re honoured that your Mummy is an online Auntie. It’s all very complicated, isn’t it?
      We have an Uncle Wayne too, apparently, but he lives in New York with Auntie Dawn. It’s probably not the same uncle.

        Yes, it’s very confusing. And, no, I don’t think it’s the same Uncle Wayne. That’s very cool you have an Uncle Wayne too though. Squeak soon, Mollie

    Hi Biggles – that’s kind of you to shout out for me … I’m an Auntie just up the coast … but when we move we do miss people don’t we … just enjoy your pals, any Aunties who might visit and the Spring sun – and new grass = delish! Cheers Hilary

      You’re welcome to come and see us any time, Auntie Hilary. I wonder if Mummy might look for a cottage in your direction next year? We’re going a little further west in May for a week’s holiday. It’s to help us recover from the exertions of the AtoZ. I’m just typing what Mummy said. 🙂


  5. Auntie Dawn

    I’m honored to be included in this list of special aunties.

    Augustus, Lynley, and the Satanic Conures have many aunties; your mummy is one!
