Well its been quite the busy and crazy past few weeks! I hope you’re all doing well? What have you been up to? As some of you may or may not know in January this year the Guineapig Wheekly UK was shortlisted thanks to all your votes in the UK Blog awards of 2016. I made a little vlog of the day for you to come along with me and so we can experience it all together.
Sadly we didn’t get to explore london that day but maybe sometime soon we can go again.
Looking back on the Guineapig Wheekly UK after it turned a year old last wednesday ( 23rd of March) I can’t believe how far we’ve come. The Guineapig Wheekly UK has made so many new friends, there’s around 10,000 of you now all together and I just really wanted to thank you for all your support over the past year. Here’s to many more wheekly cute and fun filled years together.
Thanks for helping me to grow.
Back in November 2015 I put together a couple of guinea pig doodles and thought why not make a guinea pig Christmas card collection. Since it was the season of giving it also made sense to do good with my talents and so through selling these guinea pig Christmas cards, I decided to donate a % of the profits towards creating a care package for a Guinea pig UK charity rescue.
Would you like to know what happened next?
Hello everyone! We’re very excited to share with you our interview with the lovely little Patrice! She is quite the guinea pig celebrity and not to mentioned a professional model. Both Patrice and her owner Lorri strive to spread the word about good guinea pig care and opening up others to adopt vs shop.

Now every year we all get so excited to complete our Christmas wish list in time before Santa gets here. This year, everyones wish list is no doubt different to their last. Sometimes on this Christmas wish list is a guinea pig. Although asking for a pet or giving a pet as a gift at Christmas may seem like a good idea, there are some things to take into account before you top that piggie with a pretty bow and pop it under the Christmas tree.
What’s that? Your head is feeling groggy, your nose is all bunged up and you’re feeling pretty lousy. Sounds like you have a cold my friend! Not only now are you classed as the main contaminate in your whole household, but with that comes the worry of giving it to your pets.
Now as much as we love our small pets from hamsters to rats, rabbits and of course guinea pigs, each are different when it comes to catching a cold. Today we’re going to cover Guinea pigs ( who’d of guessed) and all your questions to ease your mind whilst you blow that runny nose.
We hope you are having a wonderful week so far! Today we have some exciting updates to share with you.
