D for Dandelions #AtoZChallenge

Will I be all right in this bath thing?

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”

dD is for Dandelions

Personally I think dandelions are over-rated but everyone else adores them.  There’s even a moving picture on our YouTube page showing George eating a dandelion right from the stalk end to the flower.  Only Mummy can’t find it.

Here’s a photo of Victor eating one instead.

My week, by Percy

We didn’t go outside last week.  It was very rainy.  Mummy said it was cold.  She didn’t even bring grass in for us. We had some dandelion leaves though. They were from Auntie Heather next door. I thought we might go outside yesterday.  Mummy went out very early.  Then she came in and we had cuddles as usual.  Then we went out again.  When she came back she said the grass was too wet.  She picked some for us though.

We do get out of our cages.  After cuddles every day we run around on the floor.  There are things to play with.  There’s a box of hay to jump into and eat.  There are tunnels.  Big ones and small ones.  What I like most is running around the edges.  Sometimes Mummy stands by the edge.  She does things on top of the edges.  I discovered I can run over her foot.  You have to be careful because sometimes she moves her feet.  Her feet are about the same size as me.  Oscar and I spend a lot of time under our cages.  There are boxes and tables on legs.  It’s fun running behind them and between them.  There are lots of old smells there too.  Messages from people from the past.  I don’t know who they are, though.  Maybe Kevin will tell me what he knows about them.

I’ll tell you if he does.

Have a nice week.
