Piggy Carriers



Our local animal rescue has started selling cardboard carriers for people to take home their adopted pets. Here is a photo of one. You can see a pigture of a piggy on the side so one would assume that piggies could be put inside.



Here is a pigture of me. Agent Big Red, sitting next to the carrier. How am I going to get inside?



Here's how! Whoops! Too small.



 Our Slave brought home a Vivid Arts model pig in a box the same size as this carrier.



Her box had better airholes in it too.



We don't think much of this box and think that the people who made it should not have put a piggy on the side. Here is a better use for that little box. A nice hidey for a model piggy.



We don't think cardboard boxes are very suitable for piggies. Agents Curly and Wizard were brought here in this one.



That size box is the right size for one of our mousefriends, although she could have gnawed her way through it on her way home from the rescue. Slave always takes a plastic carrier when she collects mice. This is our mousefriend Lady Grey.



This is one of our carriers. Slave has several for when we need to travel. Much safer for piggies. Thank you for reading this. Agent Big Red.

Agent Zeppelin reveals all

We've travelled to the south of the Netherlands for an exclusive photo shoot with Agent Zeppelin. We've told you that Jimmy is an extremely handsome boar. But we admit, it is kinda hard to see with all that hair..

So here he is *drumroll*

Knappe man he! Cc @gekkeflappies

As you can see, he has a very cute nose

 Jimmy the man!

He also has a very cute cagemate; the lovely Pepper (who won't sit still, so that is why her staff is standing by in the back of the pigture)


(Sjeuf) wat een bjoetie he! Cc @gekkeflappes

Friday Video: Perfect Balance

Today a video that is very different from what you've come to expect from us. We promise we'll put up a piggy video next week. But for the agents amoung you, this human and her balancing skills are a real inspiration. Make sure you watch it until the end!


Have a nice Wheekend!

Testing Tasty Treats

We have been given some tasty new treats to try out they are little pots of piggy salads from Living World Green we have 4 flavours to try last night we tried Strawberry Marigold and Green Oat salad.




As you can see there are plenty of Strawberry bits which are my favourite part



Iron Hamster liked the Marigold flowers best, he suggests less Strawberry and more Marigold



Agent F1 had a nibble of everything and doesn't have a favourite bit

F1 says if the the humans want to improve this for piggies they should make the tub the salad comes in from cardboard and not plastic then we could play with the tub and eat that as well!!

He does like eating cardboard.

Calendar piggy: May 2013

This months Calendar piggy is the lovely Clover. Here you can see her spring pigture that is in this month of the Undercover Guinea Pigs Calendar 2013. Clover tells her story below...

----

Hello everyone,
my name is Clover, aka. Agent Dahlia. My real name comes from the fact that I was born on St. Patrick's Day. My secret agent name comes from the fact that I like to pose for pigtures by flowers, as you can tell from my calendar pigture; especially dahlias. I am a 2 year old Sheltie and I live with my mom Flower, and my Abyssinian friends, a mother and daughter, Nutmeg and Cinnamon. You can see a pigture of my mom and I here.


I have a not-so-secret admirer next door, Barney, who always looks at me longingly. He tries to chew through the bars of his cage so we can be together, but it hasn't worked so far. I am very special pig to my human, because my dad died unexpectedly 2 weeks before I was born, and my brother died when he was only 1 year old. To my human's surprise, I look almost identical to my dad! My favorite things to eat are parsley and cucumber and I really enjoy grazing outside and running up the stairs. I turned 2 years old in March and had a party for my birthday with my favorite foods. Here is a pigture of me in my party hat.



Thanks for reading about me!

Sincerely,
Clover aka. Agent Dahlia

Food from the balcony

We are currently enjoying the balkony very much. We have gotten seeds from the Guiny girlz and our waitress has planted them in a pot.


Since she has sown too much of them, she picks a little every day and we get to eat it!


The waitress rinsing off the dirt


Yum! We loooove these!


The balcony where our waitress likes to bask in the sun like a big pink lizard when she is not busy bringing us food. She is also growing strawberries and a variety of herbs so we are looking forward to the summer.

Friday Video: the Desert Rain Frog

For an animal without fur, this desert rain frog is pretty cute. Or to be more precise; sounds extremely cute



Have a nice Wheekend!
