Red paprika strikes again!

I think we both already told you that our humans are obsessed with taking pictures of us. Especially the female… And especially in the week-ends. On one side, this is a good thing because we can document our lives and keep a track for the times when we would have to write our impressive biography. On the other side, I’m affraid my fur will lose its shine from all those pictures.

This morning the human male fed us. With red paprika. So I’ve got the usual colored fur underneath my chin. And she got her usual excitement when she saw this, translated in “let’s shot some pictures!”. As any snapshot with me is impressively awesome, I would like to share them with you. My comments included. 😀

“What, human?! What do you want now?!”

guinea_pigs_tales_kirk_say_what“Yes, I had some red paprika! So what?! By the way, your husband fed me!”

guinea_pigs_tales_kirk_yes“And this is the prove… Now, can I go back to sleep?!”guinea_pigs_tales_kirk_paprikaAnd now I’m really going back to sleep. Maybe she will give me a break from the photo sessions.


How cute I am

Almost from the begging it was clear that Kirk is the model, beautiful pig and I was the crazy, but very active one. Still, I don’t give up to the fight so fast! But it is very difficult to motivate myself to stay still for enough seconds to allow being photographed…

But my human female is getting more and more experienced in convincing me. For example, she knows very well that I’m not very comfortable at height so she tricks me. Last Friday she took me by surprise, raised me in the air and put me on the narrow part of a sideboard. Before noticing what’s happening, she already took some snapshots…


And I remember how she tried almost one year ago to take a picture of me while yawning. She was almost sleeping on the couch with the camera turned on just to make sure she will not miss the moment. It took me a while to figure it out what she actually wanted… It was awkward to see her spying on me all day long. I  was almost afraid to go to sleep; that creepy the whole situation was. Finally, after two months of struggles, I manage to fell asleep and she managed to take the photo.


Then she has all this weird “creative” ideas about how I would look good on a specific color or piece of cloth. And she is trying very hard to convince me to stay still for a photo. Of course I refuse! I am a little Guinea Pig but I have a huge personality! And she never tried to bribe me… She should understand that a piece of carrot might do miracles.

Look, she tried very hard to make me stay for long enough on a red bed sheet because she is convinced my eyes look better on that color. Finally, I’ve accepted, but just because I realized she would never give up to the idea.


But, from time to time, I get to make fun of her and I show her the spot where my tail should have been…

guinea_pigs_tales_spock_buttNo matter the position, I’m still a cute pig. 😀

I’m a gourmand pig!

I am a 1.340 kg pig and I’m proud of it. The humans around me seemed a little worried when I’ve passed 1.3 kg, but after some research they reached to the same conclusion as I did: nothing is wrong. So, I just enjoy my vegetables. A lot!

I eat celery so fast that I could win a speed contest. Is there any in the world?! Cucumber disappears as if it was never near me and an endive stands no chance. And I have my methods of getting food… 😀

I’ve developed a sixth sense and I hear immediately the fizzle of a plastic bag. That means that one of the humans is manipulating some vegetables. And even if they are with their hands on something else, I don’t care and I pass to the next step of my plan. Screaming and shouting from the roof of my house always seems to give results – they can’t resist and feed me.

Anyway, today I want to share my pleasure in eating red paprika. It’s an amazing experience that attracts afterwards the human female with the camera. Apparently when they eat red paprika, they don’t paint their chin in red… I can’t really understand why they don’t want to mark the moment, but it’s their loss. I really like to “dye” my fur all over my neck and even a little to the belly.
