Naomi and her "girls"...

Thought I'd post some pictures of Naomi and her two guinea pigs, Sweet Pea and Sapphire. They are pretty funny little critters!

They make a whole array of sounds: chirping and squealing and purring. They race around madly first thing in the morning but otherwise are pretty sedentary. They like to cuddle and recently Naomi sewed two matching "cuddle cups" (basically pet beds), for them which she uses when she brings them into the house. They are often curled up in these beds on the table next to her as she is doing her school work. (Who knows maybe we'll have some very educated guinea pigs!)

Here they are enjoying a nice juicy dandelion from the yard!
Here Little O is feeding them a carrot. He has abbreviated their names to, "Pea-Pea" and "Fire".
This is so funny... Sapphire is lounging on her back, munching on a carrot! 
Oh the life of a pampered guinea pig!


  1. Did I read that correctly? ... Guinea pigs on the table!?! I guess Dad has soften a bit when it comes to pets ;-) Very nice job on the 'Cuddle Cups' Naomi!

  2. Your post makes me smile! It's dear to see how caring Naomi is toward her little pets (good choice of names, Naomi! :-)). The last picture is too much!
