Family Photo August '99 My how quickly they change!

  Back to the top

Our Guinea Pigs  Sweetpea & Calco joined us early in 2001from another owner who could no longer look after them.  Sadly Sweetpea and Calco have both died, but Checkers a very young guinea pig joined us in May '02. In October two more guinea pigs Toffee and Tufty have arrived. Rachael & Judith both take great care of them and they are a really useful part of our family as between them they keep our small lawn at a perfect height without any effort on our part.  In September 07 Rachael's busy social life meant they were becoming more difficult to look after and they have now moved into a lovely new garden about a quarter of a mile away where they are very happy.

     Checkers, Toffee & Tufty 


Sweetpea & Calco Checkers

November 04 Our two new chipmunks Chocolate and Hobnob arrive. (and following their cannibalistic tendencies soon depart!!! leaving our latest but not wimpy albino, but winter 2006-7 was too cold and not having stored enough food she did not awake from hibernation. We have given up on chipmunks now.



Goldfish In April 2002, Colette became 'mother' to four new fish, two goldfish (salt and pepper) and two comets (bubble and squeak), all of which are over a year old. Sadly in November 04 bubble and squeak left for the great goldfish bowl in the sky!  Later in 2006 the goldfish were passed on to friends of Helen
