Pinto is seriously thinking about making complaints about the mistreatment she is receiving at the hands of these humans and asks Betsy's assistance.
Dear Pinto
You need to write a letter of complaint to the GPU (Guinea Pig Union) that goes something like this:-

"Dear GPU

I am not being fed! My Slave makes me wait hours and hours and hours (well probably around 5 minutes) for my pellets. I hint by standing with my feet on my food bowl and I just get ignored. Even when my Slave sees my looking at her cutely with my feed on the food bowl I still get ignored! It really isn't good enough. I may get lots of hay but I JUST WANT MY PELLETS. I like eating my pellets they are very yummy.

Yours sincerely

Pinto the Piggy"

Hope this helps!

Hello all,

Haven't been on for a while for health reasons. The pigs are still being their naughty selves. Womble had a case of bloat about 2 weeks ago but we got him treated and he was back to his usual demanding self in a couple of days.

I noticed he wasn't eating or coming to the bars to beg for his morning veggies and I had noticed the night before his poohs we getting smaller. He was sat in his hide fluffed up and feeling sorry for himself so I booked an appointment at our regular vet. (Littlecroft)

The vet listened to his belly and said his gut was quieter than it should be so she gave him an anti-inflammatory and a gut stimulant, told us to feed him critical care to keep his gut moving and told us to use the infocol we had. We also gave him less veggies for a couple of days. She told us to bring him back the next day. After a couple of hours he was eating like normal and by the next day he was much brighter but we kept an eye on his input and output for the next couple of days.

The girls have gotten big!
Truffle is over 1kg and Pinto is not far behind at 800-900g.
Pinto is the most demanding guinea pig and starts the veggy war cry and gets the othet two wound up.

Truffle is noisy too, but nothing beats the high pitched Pinto scream.
I'll have to put a video up soon, but it is so cute.😘
We call Pinto 'our sunshine' because she brightens up our day and she's blonde.

Womble is happy enough in his own company, he regards the other guinea pigs with a quick glance or a little sniff and then gets on with eating pretty quickly.

We're wondering whether Womble is a little older than the rescue told us and maybe Stripe was as well, regardless we love our grumpy little old man.
We got him in 2018 and they said he was 8 months but being a rescue this maybe was an estimate so we put hia age around 4-5 years old. :)

Sorry about the long update. Hope everyone is keeping well. Below I have put a couple of pictures I have taken. I will add some videos later on when I have the time to upload them to youtube.

Lovely to see the piggies. Sounds like you’ve had your hands full. Well done on getting on top of the bloat so quickly.

Lovely to see you again.
We missed you.
Good to see all your piggies thriving and happy that Womble recovered quickly from his bloat.
Hope you are ok now.

Thank you. Womble is great now, his normal self again and I'm on medication, which did have some horrible side effects for a couple of weeks but now I have adjusted. :) Thank you for hoping I'm ok. :) I hope you and your guineas are well.

Pinto does the chonky leg and has a le lounge.
I'm talking to Pinto. Truffle head butts her hide and peeks out curiously to see if I have anything.
Womble comes out only for food and does zero poses. He sniffs at the phone camera and looks disgruntled when food doesn't come fast enough for his liking.
How very dare!
