An Interview with the Boys

Have you ever looked at your pet and wondered ‘What the heck are they thinking?’  Or even, ‘Why did you react like that?’  Well, I have quite often with Fred and Lamont. I decided to sit down with my two guinea pigs and get them to set the record straight.


Q:  “Why do you react like something has exploded when I drop my pen?”

Fred:  “It’s a really loud noise.  It scares me.  I have to protect myself.”

Lamont:  “I don’t know.  All I hear is ‘boooom’ and I run…”


Q: “Why don’t you two share most of your stuff?”

Fred:  “Share?  We have you as a mom.  If we argue enough you’ll just buy a second of whatever was involved to shut us up.”

Lamont:  “We don’t need to share.  We have two of everything…”


Q: “Why are guinea pigs so obsessed with poop?”

Fred:  “Poop is life.”
Lamont:  “I don’t know.  I like my poop.”


Q:  “Do guinea pigs live by any kind of philosophy?”

Fred:  “Yes.  Poop is life.”

Lamont: “Yes.  In one end; out the other.”


Q:  “Is Lamont / Are you a wimp?”

Fred:   “Ahhh, ya…  Why do you think I have to make sure the coast is clear for him all the time?”

Lamont:  “A what?  I am not a wimp.  I’ll prove it to you…  “FRED!!!!””


Q:  “What is the highlight of your day?”
Fred:  “When you feed us.”

Lamont:  “Nap times.”


Q:  “What would your change about your current situation?”

Fred:  “Nothing… Oh, wait! Sows.  We need sows…”

Lamont:  “Not much.  Perhaps more hours in the day to nap…  24 just isn’t enough.  Can we make days 30 hours or more?”


Q:  “How many times a day do you poop?”
Fred:  “What is more than a lot?”

Lamont:  “That’s a bit of a personal question…  But, I would say a lot…”

Q:  “Do you love your brother?”

Fred:  “Yea.  Who else would I bother?  I mean, my life would be so boring without him.”

Lamont:  “Yes.  He protects me and has taught me so much.  What would I do without him?”



As you can tell from my brief interview with the boys, they have a deep appreciation for naps, food, poop, and each other.  But you can tell that they are goofballs.  So, I would take their responses with a grain of salt.

I’m sorry the blog couldn’t be longer.  My contract with the boys would only allow me to interview them in blocks of 15 minutes.  Then I was required to give them a 4 hour break with fresh hay, fresh water, lots of greens, and a newly fluffed cozy.  I was going to give in to that…  But then I realized I already do that for them…  They have me trained.  See you next wheek!



  1. I love your boys and their honest interview. They are both very wise – I agree we all need more hours to sleep! They certainly do have their mom well trained. Thanks for sharing your boys with their fans.
