PERMANENT RESIDENTS     HomeBack Home

We have a number of our own Guinea pigs which are much treasured pets.  

Here are a few of our permanent residents who occasionally give us some lovely babies, some of which we sell to good homes – please see our for sale page for further details.

Toby dutch guinea pig

 

TOBY  

Toby is our original guinea pig who started us off with our love of cavies. He was bought from a local breeder as a pet for my middle son and is an excellent father

FUDGE 

This is fudge, our first female guinea pig. She is an excellent mother and is always out to greet you at the bars of the hutch first thing in a morning. She recently has a litter of 7. She belongs to my elder son

Maxwell Himalayan guinea pig

 

MAXWELL

Maxwell our Himalayan, (or Max as we call him ) was obtained from a local children’s farm as my younger son fell in love with him on a visit. He is a wow with the ladies and insists on the rabbit giving him a daily all over wash

RUBY  

Ruby was bought, along with Harvey from a retiring breeder in Yorkshire . She was a lilac/gold/white alpaca and is the quietest, softest guinea pig you could ever hope to meet, always there to greet you when the car reverses down the drive. We sadly lost Ruby a few weeks ago after an emergency caesarian section

Harvey Alpaca guinea pig

 

HARVEY  

Ruby’s partner from the same breeder in Yorkshire . A lilac/white alpaca. He is adorable and very gentle. He and Ruby had 3 litters

TRUFFLES  

Our recently acquired sheltie is still settling in nicely. He was only 16 wks old when this was taken but is a whopper. Beautifully marked

Sammy Abyssinian guinea pig

 

SAMMY 

Samantha was bought by my middle son with his birthday money as he always wanted a “scruffy” guinea pig. She was our first Abyssinian and has produced several litters for us. A real sweetie

SCRUFFY 

Scruffy is the offspring of Sammy and Toby, he was one of two babies, the other sadly being handicapped and dying. He was our first Abyssinian baby

Two young Peruvians ladies recently acquired both about 12 weeks old and quite little characters

 Daisy Peruvian guinea pig

 

DAISY (1) 

This is Daisy, our first Peruvian, who was pregnant when we got her from a breeder who was discontinuing. She is the mum to Belle (below)

BELLE

Belle is the original Daisy’s baby (above). She was one of four babies which she had whilst they were away boarding and we were on holiday, the babies not being due. She was the only one of the four to survive hence we kept her

Squeaker crested guinea pig

 

SQUEAKER

Squeaker was originally a pet belonging to another family who felt they couldn’t give him the attention he needed hence we said we’d have him. He certainly lives up to his name and is very talkative

SNOWFLAKE 

Snowflake is another of Fudge’s babies who nobody wanted so we kept her. She is a crested DE white
