Pets make a great addition to any family, they are someone to cuddle, someone to talk to, someone to look after, someone to love.
This probably seems like a really random blog post but I started this blog to document one of the most important days of my life (our wedding) and since then I have found it my place to write about the things I like, that make me, me as well as the things that are important to me in my life.
We have two pets, both guinea pigs, brothers in fact, they are called Remus and Captain. I named Remus after the Harry Potter Character Remus Lupin and Tim chose the name Captain.
My favourite things about having them as our pets are the following; feeding them and seeing their delight when they have a tasty treat, giving them a cuddle & a stroke and hearing them squeaking whenever i open the door after a day at work (or when anyone opens the fridge)
My nephew Noah has become more fascinated by the guinea pigs as he has got older, hes grown up with them. He always comes into the lounge and sees them, asks where they are if they are hiding and helps me to feed them too.
Unfortunately yesterday (Saturday 23rd September) was a very sad day as we lost Remus 😭 He was a such a cool guinea pig & quite a character too! We’ll miss him loads, (especially Cappers). He had been ill and appeared to get better but such is the problem with small pets such as Guinea pigs, they often mask their illness. I just hope he is comfortable wherever he is now.
He was a big part of our lives! Him and Captain were our first pets that we bought together after moving in with each other 3 years or so ago when they were just 8 weeks old.
Pet’s really do leave a special mark on your heart 💚 I’m glad we’ve still got Captain and we will always have the lovely memories of our awesome, funny, adorable Remus 🐹
