Z for Zebra stripes #AtoZChallenge

Hello! 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’ll be doing this last week.

Our theme is “Our Favourite Things” – and I hope you’re not tired out from all this blog-visiting (I am)!


Zebra striped snuggle sack

Our zebra snuggle sack is everyone’s favourite.  It’s quite old, but it’s worn really well, especially when you consider it gets sat on, sat in, and washed quite often too.  It’s got cotton fabric outside and thick fleece in with an extra bottom layer to make it even comfier.

Mummy got it originally for Hugo, who was black and white with a Zorro stripe on his side, just like Auntie Dawn’s Mariusz.  They were pretty hard to tell apart, which is why, when Mummy wrote her books, Hugo and Mariusz were the same person!

As far as I know, Mariusz never hid in the zebra snuggle sack, which Mummy calls the camouflage sack.  All our black and white pigs use it to hide in plain sight.  Humphrey’s and Hector’s white noses disappear very well into the general stripeyness.  The grey and white piggies have used it too, and at the start of the A to Z it was Percy’s, although Bertie & Biggles put in a strong bid for it.  Mummy eventually gave it to Percy and Midge, and they’re very pleased.


This is the end of our A to Z 2017 and I hope you enjoyed learning about Our Favourite Things.

Did you see the interview we did on Mummy’s blog?

Apparently we have to do something called Reflections on Monday week.  Come back and see us then – and every Monday.  We’ll be here, probably with a new apprentice!
