About Guineapig Wheekly | Our Story and Inspiration

Hello there and welcome to the Guineapig Wheekly UK!

A place filled with adorable oodles of guineapig goodness all wrapped up into one website you're sure to find something that will leave you with a smile.  My name is Katie and I'm the Illustrator and Creator behind everything "Guineapig wheekly UK". Originally everything started out back in march 2015 as a little creative blog inspired by my sisters love of guinea pigs and my love of illustration.

I began to create whimsical illustrations to accompany each piggie post I would write and before long our guineapig friends and following grew and grew. As our little blog grew so did many peoples love for the unbelievable cuteness that were my guinea pig illustrations and hence it grew beyond just being a tiny blog into a creative shop where I design and manufacture my own Guinea pig themed products!

All Guineapig Wheekly UK products are designed with love and crafted in the uk by local printers and makers giving that handmade touch to every piece we sell. 

Why did I start the Guineapig Wheekly UK?

I actually didn't realise how amazing guinea pigs are as little bundles of fluff with huge personalities for such a long time. My sister Stephanie has always had a soft spot for animals since she was small but it wasn't until she introduced me to piggies that I melted and felt the love. She in fact has ASD ( autism spectrum disorder) and although we're very different people I felt sharing a love for guinea pigs might bring us together so I made my blog and combined it with something I love to which is drawing.  Not only has the Guineapig Wheekly brought us both together closer but created beautiful new friendships in all our followers but a little community we're chuffed to call our own.
