Forget rabbits, or even Muskrat Love

A guinea pig called Sooty had a night to remember after escaping
from his pen and tunneling into a cage of 24 females.

He romanced each of them in turn and yesterday was the proud
father of 43 offspring.

Staff at Little Friends Farm in Pontypridd, South Wales,
have now secured Sooty’s pen – and begun looking for homes
for the guinea pigs.

His owner, Carol Feehan, said “I’m sure a lot of men will
be looking at Sooty with envy.”

“We knew he had gone missing after wriggling through the
bars of his cage. We looked everywhere but never thought
of checking the pen where we keep 24 females. We did a
head count and found 25 guinea pigs – Sooty was fast asleep
in the corner.

“He was absolutely shattered. We put him back in his pen
and he slept for two days.”

So Sooty’s a guinea pig? I wonder what they were testing on him — an ED drug … or perhaps a new aftershave?

  1. I protest! This is a direct rip off of my photo contents!!!

    Nevertheless I will participate and claim my prize. It is useless to resist.

    “Who are these furballs and why are they calling me Dad?”

    “I’m shorty, I’m furry, and dog gone it, the chicks love me”

    “Is that a guinea pig in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”

  2. Kevin gets some credit because this caption-thingy does bear a slight resemblence to his long-ago caption contests, and the picture of Sooty kind of reminds me of the way Kevin (an avid snow-mobiler) must have looked as he watched the heavy snow fall over the weekend.

    The winner, though, is Kingdavid, who may not have been the funniest but he was the one closest to what I was thinking.
