Hello, welcome to My Pet and Me. I'm Ferne.

0:00:030:00:06

And I'm Rory. We've been getting the barn ready for the animals.

0:00:060:00:10

We make sure they have food and water.

0:00:100:00:12

And a nice comfy place to sleep.

0:00:120:00:14

Lots of animals make excellent pets and we love meeting yours.

0:00:140:00:18

We definitely do. I'm off to meet some new friends now.

0:00:180:00:23

-You can come with me. See you later.

-See you.

0:01:110:01:13

We're at an animal charity in Cambridgeshire

0:01:140:01:17

to meet Jess and Toby, who are going to adopt a rescue pet.

0:01:170:01:20

Let's go find them, shall we?

0:01:200:01:23

-Hi!

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:01:270:01:32

Hello. You must be Jess and Toby. You must be Dad. Nice to meet you.

0:01:320:01:36

-Hello, Ferne.

-So, are we here to find you a new pet?

0:01:360:01:39

-Yes.

-Yes.

-I can't wait.

0:01:390:01:41

And this is a perfect place to look because lots of animals

0:01:410:01:45

-are in need of new homes. Shall we go?

-Yeah.

-OK, come on.

0:01:450:01:49

CHICKEN CLUCKS

0:01:510:01:53

This charity looks after animals who are lost or unwanted

0:01:590:02:03

and helps them find a new home.

0:02:030:02:05

-Have you looked in here?

-Look, rats.

0:02:090:02:12

-Do you think they're just waking up to say hello?

-Yeah.

-Hi, rats.

0:02:120:02:16

A snoozing degu. Shall we have a look and see what else there is?

0:02:160:02:21

-Yeah.

-Yeah, let's have a look through here.

0:02:210:02:24

-Look at these ones here.

-THEY CLUCK

0:02:240:02:28

-They're nice and plump.

-Yeah.

0:02:280:02:30

-Is she coming to say hello?

-Hello.

0:02:300:02:33

Maria will ask Jess and Toby some questions

0:02:360:02:39

to work out which pet is best suited for them.

0:02:390:02:42

It's important to choose a suitable pet so they can get

0:02:420:02:45

the best care, and you and your new pet are happy.

0:02:450:02:49

Can you tell me why you would like a pet?

0:02:490:02:51

So we've got something to be entertained by and to look after.

0:02:510:02:57

OK. And why would you like a pet?

0:02:570:03:00

So you can feed them.

0:03:000:03:02

So you can feed it? Oh, very good.

0:03:020:03:04

Can you tell me a bit about your home?

0:03:040:03:07

Do you have a big garden?

0:03:070:03:09

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Oh, and what's in your garden?

0:03:090:03:12

-Grass.

-Lots of grass.

0:03:120:03:14

-And dandelions.

-Grass and dandelions.

0:03:140:03:16

Oh, I think I might have the pet in mind for you then.

0:03:160:03:19

Jess, how much time would you be able to give your new pet?

0:03:190:03:24

Before, after school and the weekends.

0:03:240:03:26

Oh, I think that would be pretty good.

0:03:260:03:29

So Mum and Dad could look after them in the daytime,

0:03:290:03:32

and you can help in the afternoons and evenings?

0:03:320:03:35

-Yes.

-Fabulous.

0:03:350:03:36

The animals I think would suit you are guinea pigs

0:03:360:03:39

cos guinea pigs can live with two, to keep them company,

0:03:390:03:44

so when you're at school they're not bored or sad on their own.

0:03:440:03:47

Also they absolutely love grass and they love dandelions,

0:03:470:03:51

so your home is going to be perfect for guinea pigs.

0:03:510:03:55

-What do you think?

-Yes!

-Yes.

0:03:550:03:57

That's great. Are you ready to give them a lifelong home

0:03:570:04:01

and look after them really well?

0:04:010:04:03

-Yes.

-Yes.

-That's brilliant.

0:04:030:04:05

Rory, can you tell us more facts about animal shelters

0:04:050:04:08

like this one?

0:04:080:04:10

Of course, Ferne.

0:04:100:04:12

Many cats and dogs in shelters are often given up by people

0:04:130:04:17

who can't take care of them,

0:04:170:04:19

so lots of the pets will already be house-trained.

0:04:190:04:22

It's not just cats and dogs that can be adopted.

0:04:260:04:29

Some have smaller animals like rabbits,

0:04:290:04:32

hamsters,

0:04:320:04:33

rats,

0:04:330:04:34

and guinea pigs.

0:04:340:04:36

If you would love to have a pet but don't have time to look after one,

0:04:380:04:42

why not visit with an adult, an animal shelter.

0:04:420:04:45

You'll not only meet adorable animals,

0:04:450:04:48

but have lots of fun, too.

0:04:540:04:56

GUINEA PIG SQUEAKS

0:04:560:04:58

Now that we decided what pet is best, we've come to the guinea pig

0:04:580:05:02

and rabbit garden to learn a bit more about them.

0:05:020:05:06

-I think we should make a nice little welcome treat. Do you?

-Yeah.

-Yeah.

0:05:060:05:10

-What are we going to make?

-Guinea pig hay kebabs.

0:05:100:05:14

That sounds great. How do we do that?

0:05:140:05:17

We get the toilet roll,

0:05:170:05:20

and then we get some straw and pop it in.

0:05:200:05:24

-And put some hay in?

-Yeah.

0:05:240:05:26

Why do we use hay?

0:05:270:05:29

So then they can eat it.

0:05:290:05:31

-It's good for them.

-Yeah.

-Guinea pigs love to chew on hay

0:05:310:05:35

and it stops their teeth growing too long.

0:05:350:05:38

Then we get a stick and put it through the middle.

0:05:380:05:41

One. Yum, yum, yum.

0:05:410:05:43

-How's that?

-It's good.

0:05:440:05:47

Two. That is looking tasty.

0:05:470:05:50

What do you think the guinea pigs will think of these kebabs?

0:05:500:05:54

-They'll think it's good.

-Will they be happy?

0:05:540:05:57

-Yes.

-Yes.

-Now that we have lovely welcome home treats,

0:05:570:06:01

shall we prepare their home?

0:06:010:06:03

-Yeah!

-Yeah.

-Let's go.

0:06:030:06:05

-This is our new guinea pig home.

-It is perfect.

0:06:080:06:13

But it needs a bit of getting ready. What do we do first?

0:06:130:06:17

-Put the hay in.

-Loads of hay. Why?

0:06:170:06:21

-So then they can be comfy.

-And eat it.

0:06:210:06:24

Shaky, shaky, shaky.

0:06:270:06:28

Your garden is perfect for a hutch this size, isn't it?

0:06:280:06:32

And it's a great place for guinea pigs to eat and sleep.

0:06:320:06:35

We do have a run so they can run about and do some exercise.

0:06:350:06:41

And they're safe from bigger animals like foxes or other predators.

0:06:410:06:46

I think this is enough hay. What's next?

0:06:460:06:49

-The food.

-OK.

0:06:490:06:51

What have we got here for them?

0:06:510:06:53

-Guinea pig pellets.

-Oh, yummy.

0:06:530:06:56

These pellets are perfect for guinea pigs cos it gives extra vitamins.

0:06:560:07:01

We'll put it...

0:07:010:07:03

-There.

-..here.

0:07:030:07:05

Fabulous. And what's next?

0:07:050:07:08

It's the toys and huts.

0:07:080:07:10

This goes in the far back corner.

0:07:100:07:13

We'll put this here.

0:07:130:07:14

Yeah, put this here.

0:07:140:07:17

-We'll hide some treats in.

-Oh, lovely.

0:07:170:07:20

It can be nice to give guinea pigs fresh vegetables as a treat

0:07:200:07:24

and it's good for them cos it gives them vitamin C.

0:07:240:07:27

We need to remember where we put it,

0:07:270:07:30

and later you can see if the guinea pigs have found it,

0:07:300:07:33

and if they haven't, we take it out so it doesn't go rotten.

0:07:330:07:36

I think we're almost done. All we need is a bottle.

0:07:360:07:40

For water.

0:07:400:07:41

Perfect! Do you know what this hutch needs?

0:07:450:07:49

Yes, it needs guinea pigs.

0:07:490:07:51

It needs guinea pigs. Shall we go collect them?

0:07:510:07:54

My Pets and Me!

0:08:000:08:02

GUINEA PIG SQUEAKS

0:08:030:08:04

These guinea pigs have homes. We're holding them for practice.

0:08:040:08:08

-Are you excited to choose yours?

-Yeah.

-We're really excited.

0:08:080:08:12

It's going to be so much fun. If your guinea pigs could do anything,

0:08:120:08:17

what do you think they would do?

0:08:170:08:19

DRUMROLL

0:08:190:08:20

If our new pets could do anything, they would be pirates.

0:08:200:08:25

They would sail the seven seas in their pirate ship,

0:08:250:08:29

The Black Whiskers, and they would hunt for treasure.

0:08:290:08:32

They would find a treasure chest full of guinea pig food

0:08:320:08:36

and they would go to the middle of the ocean

0:08:360:08:39

and sink to the bottom and bury it so nobody could ever find it.

0:08:390:08:43

Ooh-arrr, me hearties!

0:08:450:08:46

Finally, it's time to choose your guinea pigs.

0:08:500:08:53

-Are you excited?

-Yes.

0:08:530:08:56

You have two pairs of guinea pigs to choose from.

0:08:560:08:59

-Can we meet these first?

-Definitely.

0:08:590:09:01

So these are called Georgia and Misty,

0:09:010:09:04

and they are a year and a half old, and they're sisters.

0:09:040:09:07

This is Georgia. Are you all right if I pass her to you first?

0:09:070:09:11

It's all right, I'll keep hold of her for a second.

0:09:110:09:14

We'll get the other one out.

0:09:140:09:16

She needs a hairbrush.

0:09:160:09:18

Oh, what do these ones feel like?

0:09:200:09:23

-Soft.

-They feel really soft.

0:09:230:09:25

-Even your messy one?

-Yeah!

0:09:250:09:27

-FERNE LAUGHS

-Do you want to get off?

0:09:270:09:30

THEY LAUGH

0:09:310:09:33

This one's coming on me.

0:09:330:09:35

-Are they tickly?

-Yeah.

0:09:350:09:38

He wants to stay on us.

0:09:380:09:39

That's a good thing cos if they're happy coming up to you,

0:09:390:09:43

that probably means she quite likes you.

0:09:430:09:46

-GUINEA PIG SQUEAKS LOUDLY

-She's eating it.

0:09:460:09:49

-She's chewing that leaf.

-Yeah.

0:09:490:09:51

The noises they're making means they're quite confident.

0:09:510:09:55

They're talking to each other and feel safe. That's a good sign.

0:09:550:09:59

Can Jess and Toby give them other names?

0:09:590:10:02

Definitely. When they come, they've got a name to make sure

0:10:020:10:06

we know who they are, but it would be really lovely if you can rename them.

0:10:060:10:11

That's the name they'll keep. We'll pop these back

0:10:110:10:14

and have a look at another two and see what you think.

0:10:140:10:18

-That sounds good.

-Does that sound OK?

-Yeah.

0:10:180:10:20

SHE GASPS

0:10:220:10:23

-Oh, I like this one.

-Oh, I like that one.

0:10:230:10:26

This is Romelle.

0:10:260:10:28

Oh, she's off!

0:10:280:10:30

And this one is called Snowy.

0:10:310:10:35

-She might like this.

-Hello.

-That's it. Let her relax for a second.

0:10:350:10:39

-Oh, no.

-No way!

0:10:390:10:42

-These ones are a bit faster than the other ones.

-Yeah.

0:10:420:10:45

-But what do you think of their colours?

-I like it.

0:10:450:10:48

We'll have another little go.

0:10:480:10:51

-I'll have Snowy.

-Are you ready? I can put her on your lap.

0:10:510:10:55

It's really hard, but have you made your decision yet?

0:10:550:10:59

-Yeah.

-Yes. We're going to choose the brown ones.

-Why?

0:10:590:11:03

Because they're more friendly.

0:11:030:11:05

-They are, and really cute, too.

-Yeah.

0:11:050:11:07

They're all lovely, so I'm sure these guys will find a home soon.

0:11:070:11:11

We'll put these ones back and say goodbye and we'll hold them again.

0:11:110:11:16

-Are you ready to hold again?

-Yeah.

0:11:170:11:20

What are you going to name them?

0:11:200:11:22

-Ginger.

-That's a good name cos she's kind of ginger-coloured, isn't she?

0:11:220:11:27

-Candyfloss.

-FERNE GASPS

0:11:270:11:29

That is perfect.

0:11:290:11:31

-Is that because of her sticky-outy hair?

-Yeah!

0:11:310:11:34

I like this one cos it's really soft.

0:11:340:11:36

-These are your new pets.

-Shall we take them home now?

0:11:360:11:40

Yeah, that's a great idea.

0:11:400:11:41

Are they excited for their new house?

0:11:410:11:44

I think they're going to love it.

0:11:440:11:46

Look, guinea pigs, there's your home.

0:11:460:11:49

Open the door.

0:11:490:11:51

We have a very curious Ginger. Look at your new house, Ginger.

0:11:510:11:57

-Oh, she's really soft.

-Shall we put her in?

-Yeah.

0:11:570:12:00

-Here comes Candyfloss.

-Yay!

0:12:030:12:06

She's scruffy.

0:12:060:12:09

Here's your new house.

0:12:090:12:10

-Oh, she's going in the tunnel!

-JESS LAUGHS

0:12:100:12:15

Are they eating their kebabs?

0:12:150:12:17

-Yes!

-Yeah.

0:12:170:12:18

-They are having a good explore around.

-Mm-hm.

0:12:180:12:21

I think they're really happy.

0:12:210:12:24

I've had a brilliant time helping you choose your new pets.

0:12:240:12:27

I'm glad they have you two here to give them a lovely home.

0:12:270:12:31

-Thank you for helping us.

-Thank YOU.

0:12:310:12:33

My pet and me!

0:12:380:12:41

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

-Hi, Holly. Hi, Berry.

0:12:410:12:45

I'm getting their bed ready. They look cosy.

0:12:450:12:48

-They definitely do.

-How was your day?

0:12:480:12:51

Brilliant. I had so much fun with my new friends.

0:12:510:12:54

Pets are great, but you shouldn't them unless the owner says it's OK.

0:12:540:12:58

Two pets you can play with are ours.

0:12:580:13:01

Go to the CBeebies website to play the My Pet and Me game.
