About me (and my owner)

My name is Mieps, I am seven years old and I live in the Netherlands. My owner (see photo) is 28 years old and she loves taking photographs of me! She has her own website

My favourite snacks are: chicory, cucumber, watermelon and carrots. I am an indoor piggy, which means that my cage is always indoors. In the living room to be exact! Me and my friends get a lot of play time on the floor.

We started our Instagram adventure on the 21st of January 2015. 

On the 31th of October (2016) we adopted an adorable male piggy from a shelter nearby. His name is Archie and he's about 1 year old! We named him after my dad's first guinea pig. Sadly Archie passed away on the 23rd of May (2017). 


Pien and Wies became a part of the family on the 9th of June 2017, so that Mieps would not be alone.


We welcomed Lien in July 2018, sadly she passed away a few months after because of an illness. 


On the 5th of January 2019 Sien joined our family. She was around 2 months old at the time. Sadly she got very ill overnight and she passed away on the 17th of October 2020.


My precious Mieps passed away on the 18th of March (2020) at the beautiful age of 7. 


In September 2021 we adopted Fien from someone in my town who didn't want new guinea pigs after Fien's mate passed on. The bonding with Wies and Pien went really smooth and now they're a happy crew. Fien passed away in her sleep peacefully on the 11th of May 2022.

If you have any questions about me or my owner, please ask me by sending me an email (info@miepstheguineapig.com), a message through the contact form or through one of my social media accounts. 

This is one of Archie's first photoshoots. He's such a natural piggy model!

Here is a photo of our owner Marloes.
