✨🐹 Going to the National pet show and you can join us to! 🐹 ✨


Hello Wheeklies!

So tomorow (sunday 8th nov 2015) we’ll be going to the National Pet Show at the Birmingham NEC! We’re so excited as there’s so much to see there from :
  • Vet & Pet talks
  • Rabbit jumping show
  • Small pet zone ( there are dog & cat zones to!)
  • Pet trade stands and more!
Since maybe some of you might not be able to make it to the Pet show or just wanna see what its all about. We’d like to invite you to a free quick 10 minute scope we’ll be hosting at the Pet show and maybe feature a special guest to!
You guys are more than welcome to sit in our Periscope live show at 11:00 oclock (UK time) tomorrow. It’s absolutely free and the link will be available on our twitter account @gpigwheekly tomorow.
Note: What is periscope? Periscope is a Live streaming app available for use on mobile devices ( check out the google play store or apple store to find it). Using Periscope you can search us ” Guineapig Wheekly” and tune in with us when we are live scoping. You’ll be able to see what we’re up to , comment and follow us for regular updates on when you can sit in on our scopes.
