Mr Percy Pig

Hello and welcome to George’s Guinea Pig World.  I’m Percy, and I run this place with Kevin.  George set it up in 2009, which is before I was born.  I live with Bertie & Biggles in a nice cage next to Oscar, and his brother Midge lives next to Kevin.

Our A to Z theme is “Our Favourite Things”


eE is for Evening Cucumber

I think I suggested when we did C for Cuddles that cucumber was even more of a favourite thing.  We get little bits of cucumber at cuddle time in the morning, but in the evening, Mummy comes into the kitchen to make herself a drink and cut a slice of cucumber for each of us.  Oscar and I live in the kitchen, so we lean over the side and watch her to make sure she gives us the best bits.  Apparently Hugo and Hector used to do that as well, although most of us come to the side of the cage to get it straight from her hand.

Bertie & Biggles only arrived two weeks ago but they’ve already become brave enough to take their cucumber from Mummy’s hand.  Mummy’s very pleased with them.

Mmmm, Evening cucumber!

My daily grind

I thought you might like to know what I do all day.  I’m very busy, of course.

A typical day at this time of year goes something like this.

The sky gets lighter in the window above our heads and the sun comes up and we can see it’s bright at theother end of the kitchen where we live.  That’s good, that means it’s sunny.  I have a drink and a bite to eat, and tell Dougall it’s his turn in our nice snugglesac, because it’s my turn in the hammock.  If I’m lucky I get to snooze before Oscar comes biting the bars and disturbing me.

C is for Cucumber and Carrots and Chard…

This one is REALLY difficult to choose.  It’s the most difficult of all.  I mean all these LOVELY things we like that begin with C.  Cucumber, carrots, chard, cauliflower, coriander, chard, caraway, celery, celeriac, cabbage (well, I’m not that keen on cabbage).  And then there’s wild flowers, colts foot, cats ear, camomile, cornflower.  Fred and George tried crocus once.  Mummy told them off as it’s supposed to be poisonous as it’s a bulb.  I didn’t know that.
