Kirk's tales

These humans!

kirk_profile_2Again we had visitors! Although our humans promised these ones are the last in a long row, I have my doubts…

To be honest, I don’t really care if other humans are coming and sleeping over, just that we don’t get to go out in the house that much: apparently we poop all over and not all the humans are happy seeing this kind of stuff.  But Spock suffers the most: the visitors are somehow sleeping on the couch or on an inflatable bed near buy and he feels his territory is menaced. He does some crazy things, like going out on the couch and shouting out loud. But the craziest thing he did was to get out in the middle of the night and sit on a human hand that was somehow lying on the couch. The human visitor woke up with a Spock on his fingers. His shocked face: priceless.

Anyhow, these last two human visitors were nicer and really found of us. They also came with a nice photo camera and took a lot of professional photos of us. Also I’ve got to cuddle in their bed and to be petted more often. Still no supplementary pellets for me as the hf is worried I’m getting too chubby. (I’ve got to 1.4 kilos…) I think she needs therapy to understand the fact that I am a big boy and that my bum is the most precious asset.

Before going back to sleep, I’ll show you below some photos taken by the visitors. By the way, do you think I’m fat?! Forget it! You don’t have to answer…

Image updates

worf_profile_2We had a lot of time in our hands these days (we took a break from planning how to rule the world…). The humans were super busy cooking and eating (apparently there was some Christmas thing and a New Year’s Eve thing, whatever this is…). So the laptops were left unattended and we were able to crop, resize and rearrange some nice photos taken in 2014. Of course I had to do all this as I am the one with the knowledge and the patience.

Although I must admit Data was also super helpful and uploaded around 850 photos on Picasa creating a back-up album of all our nice photos from 2014. We’ve spent several hours selecting the best ones and deleting the not so nice ones or the redundant ones. Never trust the humans that they will not post the bad and embarrassing ones on Facebook!

So, the official announcement:

Dear readers and followers,

It is with great pleasure that we announce some image updates. Meaning that we realized our profile photos were a little bit outdated, so we convinced the humans we need better ones. Of course, this means our header also changed and the FB page will accommodate our new official profile pictures too.

We hope you like it and we look forward to entertaining you in the future!

And it was my first B-day…

My dears, I really apologise for yesterday but I was hangover due to too many pellets. I barely could move…

Now, do not worry! Nothing serious happened, just that so much food made me sleepy. And, even though I haven’t ate everything, just the thought of having so many pellets made me tired. Just because I had to cope with the urge of eating them all at ones… But I went for the wiser option, kept calm and had them in small amounts during the whole day. But enough with these pellets! They were not everything that happened on Sunday.

The celebration day started with the regular Sunday weighting (I know, no fun at all!) and with a complete cleaning of our rooms. The human female fed us and this was when I’ve got a bowl full of pellets instead of only one spoon. But not only me: the other three also benefited from the same treatment. Just look at Kirk how lazy he got! And the white part of the gang had some priceless looks when interupted.



In the afternoon I’ve got some floor time with Kirk. And a huge paper bag to play in. Filled with hay! Of course, the human female was in charge of taking photos.


After the play time in the big bag, I’ve got to cuddle in the new anorak and I must say the colour suits me well. I think the human managed to take some of the few photos where my eyes are differentiating from the rest of my shiny fur. After all, I am photogenic.


Now we are looking forward for Kirk’s birthday (over one month) and Spock’s one (1st of February). Unfortunately, after that, we would need to wait another 8 months and a half for the next celebration…

Spock's tales

Christmas photo session (part II)

guinea_pigs_tales_spock_profileShe tricked us! Honestly, she did it and we took the bait as two blond white piggies that we are… But let’s start with the beginning.

All her weird ideas about how she would like us to be part of a photo session with Santa’s hat and other props made us almost run away from home. Only the cold and the frightening thought of not having fresh veggies twice per day made us stay. Finally, last Sunday when she declared it was high time to proceed, we did what we do best: went crazy and prevented the catch.

But, she learned that if she convinces one of us to get on the couch, the other one would follow. As taking us on the table for a proper photo session was out of the question, she set the props on the couch and tricked us with some pellets to come out. We fought our instincts, but I have no idea what they put in those pellets that made us go like we were addicted.

So, we’ve got on the couch chasing the pellets and we discovered a mauve blanket, a white paper gift bag and a silverfish garland. We also saw the photo camera, but we choose to ignore it. And when we realized we’d been tricked, we also acted against that camera and decided to show only our butt to the camera. Yeah, mean, but we have nice bums, so after all the photos turned out to be funny.

When the pellets were over, Data tried to taste the garland. Apparently it was tasty enough and he did more than tasting, but the human intervened and tried to explain it was not healthy to eat plastic. I must admit I haven’t tried it given the fact that in my tumultuous past I had a stomach issue due to the ingestion of a plastic label.


After all, the human female got some photos with us in a Christmas set, although not very fancy. But it will do the trick for this time. Now we are waiting to see what kind of tree she will put up because we’ve heard she has some other weird idea…

Oh, I almost forgot! After the photo session we’ve got the bag in our room! And we’ve got to keep it for two days, until we peed on it and made it gross. We were super happy and took turns to sleep inside. And you can imagine that the hay from the bag was tastier than the one from the manger.

Christmas photo session (part I)

guinea_pigs_tales_profile_kirkOur human female decided we should have a photo session for this Christmas so we could have new and adequate profile pictures. And she started searching for props… At some point we really got scared about all her fancy ideas and decided to keep a close eye on her. I mean it is Christmas and we love our fans and followers, but public embarrassment is out of question.

But she kept plotting quietly without sharing a thing with us. And on Saturday she went shopping. When she came back, she refused to take out of the back pack any item, so I was imagining the worst. I was already picturing myself among red candles and a lot of little Santa. When I heard Sunday is the day, I’ve tried to convince the rest of the gang to run away from home and come back in January, but Worf had a good argument against saying it was too cold outside and no fresh veggies for the road.

Anyhow, on Sunday we realized there was no escape… At least for I and Worf, because Data and Spock seemed decided not to cooperate. And we (I and Worf) ended up on the dining table, apparently the most suitable object in the house in the lack of the Christmas tree. There was also a felt reindeer and a Santa’s hat involved.

On our way to the dining table, I spoke with Worf and decided to give her our support hopping we will end the session quickly and maybe have some floor time together. So, every photo taken was a success, although none of us has a big smile on their faces. True, some pellets to bribe us helped also.



After the humans decided we did well, they tried to dissipate our doubts with some treats: a twigs basket filled with grass, corn, fruits chips etc. Nice, but not awesome, especially for some raw vegetarians as we are. I mean who eats processed carrot cookies when fresh carrots are better? But we’ve managed to do a big mess out of that basket and that pleased us most.


Keep close, Spock and Data will soon share there side of the story because they were finally tricked into participating to the photo session.

Lovable me

(Me meaning Spock, just not to create confusions. :P)

Well, Kirk is competing again trying hard to get his lips into a calendar at the end of this year. We hope he will win, so he will feel better and resume his happy life.

Me, myself and I are passing our days like usual: sleeping in the wood house all day long to protect our beautiful and sensitive red eyes from the daylight, getting out in the evening and asking the human to scratch our head, but keeping her away from any cuddles and other emotional manifestations.

The only big interruption was on Saturday when she cleaned again! everything in our cages. (The Friday bath was an event, but I’ll let Data to tell you about it. :D) Like always, she put first Worf and Data in the house and I’d became very curious about what was going on. So, I’ve put my pretty face on and got out at the fence to make inquiries. The human found me very cute (I am handsome, woman!) and took a lot of pictures of me. I must admit she managed to capture also the sweet side of me, not only the larky one.

spock 2spock1So, am I lovable or what?!
