Y for Yawning #AtoZChallenge

Kevin's carrotHello! I’m Kevin.  I’m a ginger and white guinea pig and I look after both George’s Guinea Pig World and our Facebook page.  Percy and I have been sharing the workload for our A to Z Challenge this year, and I’m finishing it off this weekend.

Our theme is “Our Favourite Things”


yY is for Yawning

There’s something very satisfying about yawning.  We all do it, and I’ve seen Mummy do it too.  Most yawns are unscheduled, but I’ve realised I often stop for a yawn just as Mummy suggests it’s time to stop having our breakfast cuddle and I climb up onto her arm for the trip back upstairs.

Mummy has often said she’d like to get a picture of us yawning, but she hasn’t managed it yet.

Auntie Dawn is a wizard at capturing yawns.  So here are a selection for you, all of the late great Atticus the Kind.  Thank you for lending us your pictures, Auntie Dawn ❤ ❤

Tomorrow is our last day, even though it’s Sunday.  We might not post on Monday.  We’ll see.

 

 

We had Grass!

Percy here.  Not much happened this week, except we said goodbye to Auntie Dawn’s Atticus, which was very sad.  We’re just waiting for news of whether she found someone else needing a good home yesterday.

The most exciting thing that happened to us was that Mummy brought in some fresh grass from the garden for us.  Here’s Midge enjoying his (and Kevin with his in the other photo).

Atticus

Atticus begins with A and he’s the first guinea pig in my A to Z Challenge this April.  I’m Dylan, and you’ll find me under the letter D when we get to it.

Atticus lives in New York City with Auntie Dawn.  I’ve met Auntie Dawn but I haven’t met Atticus, except by thought transfer.  I’m not very good at thought transfer and I don’t know if he is, either.

Dawn's little dude

This is Atticus as a bitty baby, when he first came to live with Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne and Peepers and Tweek and Willoughby.  That was after Saku died.  You’ll meet Willoughby and Saku later.  Not Peepers and Tweek, they are conures which is a type of parrot.

Atticus is a smooth-haired pale Himalayan type of guinea pig.  You’ll see what a Himi (that’s short for Himalayan) should look like when we get to L for Lupin-Buckmore.  They don’t come from Himalaya, it’s just the colour name.

He’s pretty cool, for a pale thing. He has his own meme on Facebook #Satticus . That’s short for Atticus Saturdays.  There’s always a great photo of him in his cage or on BW or Dawns’ lap doing something good and saying “hi, look at me!”.  He’s got lots of fans too.

He’s not in any of Mummy’s stories yet.  I asked her and she said he will be, but probably not till right at the end.  She said that about me, though, and I’ve got a short story all of my own, now.  Well, my brother’s in it too – and George.

In case you’re wondering, George started this blog and everything else about George’s Guinea Pig World.  I’ll tell you about the legendary George when it’s time for G.
