A few weeks ago, the thought wouldn't even have entered my mind.

 Then one random day a couple of weeks ago, I went to the pet shop with Mum to look at the animals whilst she bought some hay for Barney, our household guinea pig.

And they were so lovely I knew I had to have one! I've spent the last few weeks going back and fore, trying to find the right one for me, and last night I found him!

So, without further ado, I introduce to you...

...Panda Amos Starchild!

His name comes from these three:

He has the colours of a panda, the muttonchop sideburns of Amos Brearly from the TV show Emmerdale, and the markings of Starchild from Kiss!

He's just settling into his new home now, but I should be able to take him out and pet him soon, and I can't wait!


  1. very nice to meet Panda Amos Starchild, that is some name but seems to suit him very well :) I love guinea pigs, we had one called Fizzgig when my kids were young.
    Are you still house hunting?

  2. It was just going to be Amos, but I didn't think that it fully reflected his cuteness! I like Fizzgig, that's a cute name!

    I am still househunting but there's not really anything new in the area I want :( So I'm just patiently waiting!

  3. something will turn up when you're least expectng it :)

  4. love it! I have two guinea pigs and I just love them..
