Caroline's Pets

Our Much Loved Herd of Guinea Pigs & Jack our Geriatric Snake

Our guinea pigs love having supervised access to the garden where they are allowed to run free in our cat-free, enclosed garden.

They race, jump and dive under and between the bushes with delight. When it is time to round them up we merely have to squeak and they all come running in a line. They have their own ramp so they can come inside our house, which they often do to be groomed and to get their favourite tasty treats - Fresh Basil, Thyme, Corriander and Mint.

This is Bubble my eldest daughter's Guinea Pig. She was initially the boss of the herd but has recently been ousted out of her leadership position by Carrot

Carrot belongs to my youngest daughter. She is the brave and cheeky one of the bunch and will often nibble on your toes while you do the washing up.

This is George my son's Guinea Pig. Named after the childrens TV series Peppa Pig. We did have a Peppa but she sadly passed away due to a congenital defect not long after she was born.
