A Guinea Pig named “Sooty” had a night to remember after escaping from his pen and tunnelling into a cage of 24 females. He romanced each of them in turn and is now the proud father of 43 offspring.
Staff at Littlefriend’s Farm in Pontypridd, South Wales, have now secured Sooty’s pen – and begun looking for new homes for his guinea pigs.
His owner, Carol Feehan 42, said: “I’m sure a lot of men will be looking at Sooty with envy. We knew he had gone missing after wriggling through the bars of his cage.”
“We looked for him everywhere but never thought of checking the pen where we keep 24 females. We did a head count and found 25 Guinea Pigs, Sooty fast asleep in the corner.” “He was absolutely shattered. We put him back in his cage and he slept for two days.”
