0:01:000:01:04

Today, we're in Manchester to meet two children and two guinea pigs.

0:01:070:01:11

Let's go and say hello.

0:01:110:01:13

-Hey, guys.

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi.

-Hi, Mum.

-Hi, Rory.

0:01:170:01:20

-Aw, so you must be Bonita and Fred. BOTH:

-Yeah.

-And who's this?

0:01:210:01:26

-Coco and Squeaky.

-Coco and Squeaky? Where's Squeaky?

0:01:260:01:30

-He's in there.

-Is this one Squeaky?

-Yeah.

0:01:300:01:32

And this is Coco here having a nice snack.

0:01:320:01:35

These are wonderful guinea pigs. Boys or girls?

0:01:350:01:38

-BOTH:

-Both girls.

0:01:380:01:39

-How old are these guys?

-One and a half.

0:01:390:01:41

-Have you had them since they were babies? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:01:410:01:45

They're very sweet indeed.

0:01:450:01:46

I'm wondering what you guys love about them the most.

0:01:460:01:50

-Well, what I like about them most is when they kiss you.

-Oh-ho!

0:01:500:01:54

-Do you get a big kiss?

-Yeah.

-And what about you, Fred?

0:01:540:01:58

I like playing with Coco.

0:01:580:01:59

We should get them out and have a little cuddle.

0:01:590:02:03

-BOTH:

-Yeah!

-OK.

0:02:030:02:04

You guys hold that up.

0:02:040:02:06

Right, here you go.

0:02:090:02:11

Hello.

0:02:110:02:12

Right, come on, Squeaky.

0:02:160:02:19

There we go.

0:02:190:02:21

Oh, she's lovely.

0:02:210:02:23

-Do you guys know where guinea pigs come from?

-Peru.

0:02:230:02:26

Yes, Peru, and South America. That's a long way away from here.

0:02:260:02:30

-BOTH:

-Yeah.

-They don't really look anything like pigs, though.

0:02:300:02:34

-BOTH:

-No.

-Cos they're not, they're rodents like mice or hamsters.

0:02:340:02:38

Very cute, though. What's that you've got there?

0:02:380:02:41

-It's a Peruvian waistcoat for the guineas.

-Wow. Very fancy.

0:02:410:02:46

RORY LAUGHS

0:02:500:02:52

She looks so cute. Look at that!

0:02:520:02:54

I'm glad to see you've got TWO guinea pigs.

0:02:540:02:57

Why is that important?

0:02:570:02:59

If you only get one guinea pig, it'll be lonely.

0:02:590:03:02

That's absolutely right.

0:03:020:03:03

Guinea pigs like to live in groups, so it's important to keep

0:03:030:03:07

at least two, but make sure you have all boys or all girls,

0:03:070:03:10

otherwise, you'll have baby guinea pigs running around.

0:03:100:03:14

-I've heard one of you can do a good impression of a guinea pig.

-It's me.

0:03:140:03:18

SHE SQUEAKS

0:03:180:03:20

He-he-he! That's a great impression.

0:03:200:03:22

Guinea pigs make all sorts of sounds, and it can mean

0:03:220:03:25

they're happy, they're sad,

0:03:250:03:27

they're scared or even excited. They're so cute.

0:03:270:03:30

Ferne, can you give us

0:03:300:03:32

some more facts about our furry friends, just like these guys?

0:03:320:03:36

Of course, Rory. One - guinea pigs can have different types of coats.

0:03:360:03:42

Some are wiry, some are long-haired,

0:03:420:03:44

and the most common is short and smooth.

0:03:440:03:47

Two - they tend to be very active during the day,

0:03:490:03:52

but less so at night.

0:03:520:03:54

Three - guinea pigs' teeth are always growing,

0:03:550:03:58

so it's important for them to

0:03:580:04:00

constantly gnaw on things to help wear their teeth down.

0:04:000:04:05

It's a good idea to give your guinea pigs a safe space

0:04:100:04:14

to run around both outside and inside.

0:04:140:04:16

While your mum is looking after Coco and Squeaky,

0:04:160:04:19

can you guys tell me a bit

0:04:190:04:21

about this amazing indoor hutch you've got?

0:04:210:04:24

So we've got a water bottle there what they like drinking out of.

0:04:240:04:28

Lovely. What else is in there, Fred?

0:04:280:04:30

Nuzzling in their boxes, one we made and one they can nibble on.

0:04:300:04:34

A house you can eat? Can you imagine that!

0:04:340:04:36

-Yeah, we asked them.

-Now, how often do you clean out the hutch?

0:04:360:04:40

Once a week.

0:04:400:04:42

-I'm here to help you today. Shall we do that now? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:04:420:04:47

It's important to wear gloves when you're cleaning up

0:04:470:04:50

after your pets so you don't spread any germs.

0:04:500:04:54

-Mind out, Rory.

-Let's get the kennels out first.

0:04:540:04:57

Good work.

0:05:000:05:03

Here's the bag. I'll put that between you guys.

0:05:030:05:07

First, we get all of the old hay and sawdust

0:05:070:05:10

out of the cage, into the bin bag.

0:05:100:05:12

Then we take all of the old newspapers out.

0:05:150:05:18

Good work. That's the last little bit.

0:05:230:05:26

-How many sheets should we put down, guys? BOTH:

-All of them.

0:05:280:05:32

OK.

0:05:320:05:34

Then we put in lots of fresh sawdust.

0:05:390:05:42

That'll be all right. And hay.

0:05:420:05:46

-Just get it, like, up to the top.

-All the way up to there? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:05:460:05:50

So that it's easy for them to burrow in and they get more sweets.

0:05:500:05:54

Perfect. They've got a nice place to hide.

0:05:540:05:57

OK, let's put the kennels back. Put that one in.

0:05:570:06:00

Fred, where's the other kennel?

0:06:000:06:02

Put it there.

0:06:020:06:03

This is all looking lovely, but there's something we've forgotten.

0:06:030:06:07

We need fresh nuggets.

0:06:070:06:09

Of course. What other food do you give the guinea pigs?

0:06:090:06:12

-I picked some dandelions in our school.

-Excellent.

0:06:120:06:15

-From your school?

-Yeah.

-Very nice.

0:06:150:06:17

-Shall we sort out the food now, then?

-Yeah.

0:06:170:06:21

Thank you. I'll pop these in.

0:06:210:06:24

Here. We've got some dandelion leaves.

0:06:240:06:27

-We scatter them all around the hutch.

-Great.

0:06:270:06:30

Bonita, what are you doing with that dried food?

0:06:300:06:33

I'm just making little holes,

0:06:330:06:35

then I can cover them up and then they can't see them,

0:06:350:06:38

so they sniff around a little while and then they can find them.

0:06:380:06:42

-Shall I do some over here, then?

-Yeah.

-OK.

0:06:420:06:45

That's a nice, varied diet you've got for those guys.

0:06:450:06:48

-How does this look?

-Great.

0:06:480:06:51

And then we have to get some fresh water.

0:06:510:06:54

-Now we need to put the lid back on as well, don't we? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:06:570:07:00

Mum, please can you come and get the guinea pigs in?!

0:07:000:07:05

-Do you think they're going to like it? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:07:050:07:09

Let's see, little rodents.

0:07:090:07:11

Look, there they go.

0:07:110:07:13

Oh. Oh, here we go, it's Coco.

0:07:140:07:17

Yay! Coco's in!

0:07:180:07:20

-Here comes Squeaky. Oh, there we go! Squeaky is in too. BOTH:

-Yay.

0:07:210:07:27

-Do you think they're happy with our work? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:07:280:07:32

How can you tell?

0:07:320:07:33

Cos they're munching the dandelions,

0:07:330:07:35

-having a sniff and enjoying themselves.

-I think so.

0:07:350:07:39

GUINEA PIGS SQUEAK

0:07:460:07:47

I'm tired after all that hard work.

0:07:490:07:51

-I hope these guys appreciate it, don't you? BOTH:

-Yeah.

0:07:510:07:55

-They look very relaxed here. Do you think they'll have a nap?

-Maybe.

0:07:550:07:59

-Yeah, maybe.

-OK. If your guinea pigs fell asleep right now,

0:07:590:08:03

and dreamt they could do anything, what do you think they'd do?

0:08:030:08:07

If our pets could do anything,

0:08:090:08:12

they would climb to the top of a high mountain

0:08:120:08:16

and jump onto the clouds.

0:08:160:08:18

Once they'd finished bouncing on the clouds,

0:08:180:08:21

they'll sit down and have a rest

0:08:210:08:25

and watch all the birds flying in the sky.

0:08:250:08:28

Aw, your gorgeous guineas have a pretty brilliant life, don't they?

0:08:350:08:39

-BOTH:

-Yeah.

-And you've got two, so do you have one each?

0:08:390:08:42

-BOTH:

-Kind of.

0:08:420:08:44

Whose is whose?

0:08:440:08:45

I usually play with Coco...

0:08:450:08:48

And I usually play with Squeak.

0:08:480:08:50

You're holding them now, which is good.

0:08:500:08:53

What games do you like to play with them?

0:08:530:08:55

I like playing ballroom dancing with Squeaky.

0:08:550:08:58

I play obstacle course with recycled boxes.

0:08:580:09:02

That sounds like great fun and gives me an idea.

0:09:020:09:05

Why don't we make an obstacle game and you can be different teams?

0:09:050:09:09

-Yeah!

-Yes!

-I'll be Team Squeaky.

-And I'll be Team Coco.

0:09:090:09:12

And I'll be the referee.

0:09:120:09:14

Let's get these guys back in the hutches and we can get started.

0:09:140:09:18

-Let's do this.

-Come on, little guy.

0:09:180:09:20

-Some more flags.

-Some glitter paint and some normal paint.

0:09:230:09:28

What are you doing there, Fred?

0:09:290:09:31

-I'm making a supportive flag for Team Coco.

-Looks great.

0:09:310:09:36

-How about you, Bonita?

-I'm making a supportive flag for Team Squeaky.

0:09:360:09:40

-Team Coco, Team Coco!

-Like it!

0:09:400:09:42

-Do you think shiny glitter paint will help her win?

-Yeah.

0:09:440:09:48

-What are you making there, Fred?

-A flag.

-A nice chequered flag.

0:09:480:09:52

-Do you think the guinea pigs are going to like this?

-Yeah.

0:09:520:09:55

I've got a special thing for us to work on.

0:09:550:09:58

-A grandstand for all the fans. BOTH:

-Cool!

-Yeah.

0:09:580:10:02

And I've got someone to come and watch. Ferne!

0:10:020:10:06

FRED LAUGHS

0:10:060:10:07

OK, this is finished, I think, guys.

0:10:110:10:13

-Shall we take it outside and build the racetrack? BOTH:

-Yeah!

-Let's go!

0:10:130:10:18

It's so good to play with your pets.

0:10:180:10:21

This will be good exercise for Coco and Squeaky.

0:10:210:10:25

Excellent.

0:10:250:10:27

That's good.

0:10:330:10:34

-This looks good.

-I think it's time to get the guinea pigs. BOTH:

-Yeah!

0:10:370:10:41

Let's go!

0:10:410:10:43

CHEERING

0:10:430:10:46

We're here at the Grand Final of the Guinea Pig Olympics.

0:10:460:10:49

-BOTH:

-Yay!

-Whoo!

0:10:490:10:52

Representing Manchester, we have Fred and Coco!

0:10:520:10:55

-BOTH:

-Yay!

-Whoo!

0:10:550:10:57

Also representing Manchester, we have Bonita and Squeaky!

0:10:570:11:02

-BOTH:

-Yay!

-Whoo!

0:11:020:11:03

Three, two, one, go!

0:11:040:11:08

Go, come on!

0:11:100:11:12

Come on! Oh, go, go, go, go, go! Round the tunnel.

0:11:140:11:17

-Come on!

-That's it, come on! Wrong way! Wrong way!

0:11:170:11:22

FRED LAUGHS

0:11:220:11:23

I'm just having a nibble on the grass, thanks very much.

0:11:230:11:27

RORY LAUGHS

0:11:270:11:28

-Come on!

-Come on, Coco, don't eat the grass like your sister.

0:11:280:11:32

BONITA LAUGHS

0:11:320:11:34

-Come on, guys.

-Come on, Coco!

-Come on!

-Come on, guys!

0:11:340:11:38

-Here comes Squeak.

-She's going for the tube.

0:11:380:11:41

-I know, she's going to pass her.

-Look, look, look!

0:11:410:11:44

Come on, all the way! Oh, here we come.

0:11:440:11:47

Coco is over the finish line! Coco wins!

0:11:470:11:52

-ALL:

-Yay!

0:11:520:11:54

Well done, Coco. Da, da-da-da, da, da, da, da!

0:11:540:12:00

So, in second place, we have Little Miss Squeakerson.

0:12:000:12:04

Well done, there you go. On the podium. The winner, Coco.

0:12:050:12:10

Well done, guys.

0:12:100:12:12

THEY GIGGLE

0:12:120:12:15

Well, that was loads of fun.

0:12:160:12:18

I had a brilliant time coming to meet you and Coco and Squeaky.

0:12:180:12:22

They're awesome pets and superstar athletes as well.

0:12:220:12:25

-Thanks for coming to help look after our pets, Rory.

-No problem.

0:12:250:12:29

Thank you for being our referee in the Guinea Pig Olympics, Rory.

0:12:290:12:33

No worries. Any time, Fred. Aw, wee cuties.

0:12:330:12:36

My Pet And Me!

0:12:420:12:44

-Hi, Ferne. Hi, Bagel.

-Hi, Rory.

0:12:460:12:48

You look like you've had a great day. What have you been up to?

0:12:480:12:52

-It was awesome, I had so much fun with my new friends.

-Fantastic.

0:12:520:12:56

I've just been giving Bagel a bit of a brush.

0:12:560:12:59

-She's looking great.

-Thank you.

0:12:590:13:01

Pets are brilliant, remember,

0:13:010:13:03

don't touch an animal unless the owner says it's OK.

0:13:030:13:06

Two pets you can play with are ours.

0:13:060:13:08

Go on the CBeebies website and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:080:13:12

Thanks for joining us. We hope you've had fun too.
