They whinge and whine the moment I step foot in the upstairs hall…but they don’t do it for anyone else.

They shriek when I’m fixing food in the kitchen (especially peeling carrots – such a quiet task) or running water in the sink (it reminds me of the shower scene in Psycho)!

They stare at me with their little beady eyes any time after 9:30 p.m., willing me to “feed them”.

When we go on holidays for more than a day, they have to come with us.

They are our pets…and I am (I somewhat reluctantly confess) their “mom”!



Guinea is extremely inquisitive and a bit of a bully. She is sprouting more and more gray hair every year.

Rock Star is very skittish and shy, and always looks like an unmade bed. Don’t worry – while Guinea steals her carrots, she is almost twice Guinea’s size.

We adopted them from a family at church who needed to find them a home in a hurry. Little Guy talks to them, shows them his new things, shares his secrets and plans with them. They are “family”!
