This morning I came up with the idea I’d love to write a guinea pig themed Christmas blog post. I didn’t know what to write, but I felt inspired to put a call out on social media to see if anybody had any festive piggie pics they’d like to share.
I was not disappointed.
The piggie love was overwhelming, so thank you to everybody who took part.
Here we have the Hottest Invite of the Year:
#Piggie2020 aka The Guinea Pig Christmas Party!!
‘I’m going to wear my hat,’ said Cinnamon.
Jasper laughed. ‘That’s not a hat, that’s the promotional lid off a bottle. Your hoom’s winding you up!’
Shimmer and Shine giggled.
‘Hmph, don’t you go laughing at me when somebody’s eaten too many carrots to fit into the sleigh,’ grumbled Cinnamon.
‘We’re not laughing,’ chorused Tilly and Fred from underneath their giant Santa hat.
The other piggies looked around.
‘When is this nativity going to get started?’ asked Misty.
‘My hoom has just started to build it…we’ve got a stable and a sleigh to start us off’
‘I’m all ready for my starring role in the guinativity!’ said Honey, standing proudly.
She cast her eyes at the others squashed together. ‘Just because you’ve got cozy new beds in front of the Christmas tree, don’t you go thinking you don’t have to do any work!’
Mo kept his head down, he’d found a tasty treat in front of the tree.
Distracted by the tasty treats, he didn’t see Tiny sneak in for a nibble.
Before Scot decided he also wanted in on the action.
‘That’s not very spirited, not very Christmas!’ came a disapproving voice.
‘Is anybody still playing hide and seek?’ called Honey, wondering if she’d disguised herself too well.
Tigger and Eeyore kept very quiet, they were still playing…
‘Just keep still, they won’t know which are the piggies and which are the puppets.’
Angel glanced about: Who was meant to be hiding and who was meant to be finding?
‘I’m starting to feel a little sleepy.’
‘You can’t sleep yet! We haven’t done our hat shot!’
‘I don’t know if I feel like having my photo taken today…’
‘Don’t be shy, it’s fun! Look at this lovely poinsettia, it matches my hat and the floor…I think it must be tasty!’
‘Tasty? You can say that again!’ laughed Jasper. ‘My hoom gave me a pumpkin the size of a house!’
‘Pumpkins? I didn’t get the memo about any pumpkins?’
‘Then that means you didn’t get the note about our Christmas Card Selfie! Say Hay, Hay, Hay!! Merry Christmas everyone!!’
Thank you so much to everybody for sharing your piggie pictures with me. It was an absolute joy to write about your pets, I hope you enjoyed their story too.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas xxx
