This is our first pet at The Boon… first name Harry (as in Dirty Harry); second name Muggles (as in Mr Muggles from Heroes). He is sooo cuute!

Harry is Narelle’s baby, but when she asked if it was okay with me she didn’t need to twist my arm. I’ve been wanting one of these since I was 12 years old and had great ambitions of breeding guinea pigs because I was a mad-keen trekkie and was convinced they looked like tribbles.

Harry is a spoilt little cavy. He will probably be getting his own MySpace page and YouTube channel…
