Last week my guineas had to come inside for a few days as we were having a patio relaid...unbeknown to me they were casing the joint and learning ...oh boy were they learning..

Since last week they come in every day at 2pm as their shed gets too hot. My study is upstairs, they are downstairs. (See pic) but now if they hear me even open my door i get full on whistled at, wheeked at and screamed at. If i date go to the kitchen and open the fridge..omg! One screams so hard her voices breaks!

How quickly they learn..but secretly its lovely having them so close!

They are amazing little critters arent they? Whenever anyone asks why I have guineas or states ' they are really boring arent they' people see them in whole new light when I tell them these stories. They are secret planners and schemers! and way more intelligent than most humans!

@Wiebke how on earth do you manage with them all in your house! It must be sooo noisey!

Haha, getting you well trained!
Do you think they have a guinea pig manual they share? I always remember the Starlight Barking with the 101 Dalmations and how they communicated at night, I wonder if guineas do the same by some telepathic means? They may have telepathic 'Ted Talks' for training your hoomon? How to get the best out of your Slave? When to wheek and when not to wheek?

I think they have secret video camera's and you end up as part of a documentary on a guinea pig show where they show how their slaves have done that month!

When is it not time to wheek? If there's even the slightest hint that food might be on its way us piggies must make sure the slaves know how starving we are! Yes we only ate 10 minutes ago but that was 10 whole minutes ago! That's almost animal cruelty right there!

Wheeky wheeks,
Eddie and Elvis 🐾

Yes, it's like 'The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy' (TV) - where the humans think the mice are their pets but really they are part of the mice's experiment ..

Yes I have to tiptoe silently through my house in the dark if there's any chance of getting a quick coffee before Tallulah notices me and starts demanding breakfast... and if I'm trying to work from home I have to hide in my bedroom because if they see me it must be snack time! Lockdown has certainly plumped up my piggies, mealtimes must be anytime I come out of my bedroom and if I dont give in then there is a chorus of outraged wheeking in the background of my Zoom meetings!
