Life Begins at Issue 40! 

New Beginnings? A very important mission for UK readers…

Rescue Story: This time it’s buy one rescue story – get three free. It all centres in on “One Week in May” at Cavy Corner Guinea Sanctuary in South Yorkshire. Four very different rescue situations, nine piggies needing intensive and some ongoing treatment,

We pay Tribute… Still in mourning we pay tribute to the great ‘Sir” Michael Bond. An avid supporter of GPM he was a kind Gentleman and a Sir. Here are your letters and condolences as we all pay our respects to this wonderfully warm man who is already sadly missed.


HOT TOPIC: And for us here at GPM, and you UK purchasers, topics don’t come much hotter than what has been happening with Pets at Home; They say they listen to their customers – but there are many hundreds of you who can testify otherwise! And just why did George and Billy have to apologise on Facebook?


Ask the Experts: Q&A:.If you Ask the questions, our Experts will try to answer them, using the years of knowledge and experience they have behind them. If you have any queries or concerns about your piggies health or behaviour, email the Experts on


What’s in a name?

Part 1 – A Meeting of Cavies and Names: 

From Wiebke Wiese-Thomas our in-house piggy whisperer comes a new mini series for you to join in with, looking at the whole issue of naming our guinea pigs, from ideas and themes, to whether it’s OK to re-name a rescue pig. As we know from Olga da Polga, the naming of a guinea pig is a very important business indeed. Half-fun, half-serious there will be a chance for everyone to get involved.


The ChickChick Interview: You know what they say – give a pig a phone. So, ChickChick rang product manager Dean Barratt, at Rosewood Pets to talk about their Hay Cookies. Well that’s what he says happened anyway. It’s a good job we took a transcript of the call…


Medical A – Z: T is for Thyroid Gland. Thank goodness we have our in-house expert Katharine Frayling to explain what it is, where it is, what it does, and what to look for when it doesn’t!


Thoughts Before Vegtime: Did you have a nice holiday? How about your pets? Sue Tate from Cavy Corner gives us a guide on what’s important in a piggy sitter, and shows what can happen if you leave them with the wrong people!


  • …. And because we squeeze in as much as possible without lots of adverts, there is also Your letters, Reader’s Pigs, The Adorable Adoptables, GPM’s Next Top Model, In Memory, and of course, all your gorgeous pigs in the Guinea Gallery!
